Nick Foligno away from team for daughter's surgery

The Columbus Blue Jackets announced Sunday that captain Nick Foligno will miss Monday's game against Ottawa and be away from the team because his daughter Milana will undergo a scheduled surgery in Boston.

The team said that he "will return to the team as soon as possible."

Foligno's daughter was born with a heart defect that was repaired weeks after her birth. The team did not say if the surgeries are related.

Foligno missed a game in November when Milana was hospitalized because of a virus.
