Foligno Sweeps NHL Leadership Awards

posted by Matt McCoy - 

Tuesday was a heck of a night Nick Foligno. The Blue Jackets star made some history by sweeping the National Hockey League's two leadership awards. The 29-year old Jackets captain won both the Mark Messier Award and the King Clancy Memorial Trophy, given to the best leader on the ice and in the community.

Foligno is one of four Jackets up for major awards in Las Vegas. Zach Werenski is a finalist for the Calder Trophy, given to the NHL's top rookie, Sergei Bobrovsky is nominated for both the Hart Trophy for league MVP and the Vezina for best goalie and John Tortorella is a finalist for the Jack Adams Award for coach of the year. Those awards will be handed out Wednesday night.

Foligno talked with the media after earning his honors. You can hear what he had to say below
