The Nick Foligno-for-Marc Methot trade ended up working out pretty well for the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Foligno is set to play in his 500th game for the Blue Jackets and is set to be the seventh player ever to hit that mark.

The other Blue Jackets to hit that mark include Rick Nash, Fedor Tyutin, David Vyborny, Cam Atkinson, Jared Boll and Rostislav Klesla. Nash leads this group in games played at 674.

In his eight seasons that he has played with the Blue Jackets, he has scored 126 goals and contributed 166 assists for a total of 292 points.
