Lots of good stuff here, folks.

On Friday night, Columbus Blue Jackets' captain Nick Foligno spoke to the NHL Network crew about an assortment of topics, ranging from his current family situation to his Bill Masterton Memorial Memorial Trophy nomination to the current state of his hockey club.

After missing four games to be with his son Hudson who was in the hospital with a collapsed lung and pneumonia, Foligno returned to the ice on Tuesday against the New York Islanders. More importantly, Hudson has been released from the hospital, according to Foligno in this NHL Network interview.

Here's the best segments for you to check out in the video:

  • 0:22 - Foligno on Hudson and his current status.
  • 1:15 - Foligno on the difficulty of balancing home life and work life.
