Michael Anthony Foligno (born January 29, 1959) is a retired Canadian ice hockey right winger who competed in the National Hockey League for fifteen seasons from 1979–94.

Personal life

During his time as coach in Sudbury, Foligno married Janis until her death in 2009. They have four children, Cara (teacher in Buffalo and previously on the Dufferin-Peel Catholic school board), Lisa (lacrosse student at Canisius College), Nick and Marcus. Nick was drafted in the first round of the 2006 NHL Entry Draft by the Ottawa Senators and served as the captain of the Columbus Blue Jackets from 2015 to 2021, one of Mike's former NHL teams, and signed as a free agent with the Boston Bruins.

Marcus earned a silver medal with Team Canada at the 2011 World Junior Ice Hockey Championships in 2011 and joined the Sabres in the 2011–12 season, and currently plays for the Minnesota Wild.


Mike Foligno Career

Playing career

Foligno was born in Sudbury, Ontario, but he spent his youth in Italy, where he discovered soccer as a goalkeeper. Foligno and his family were brought to Canada at the age of ten, and he was introduced to hockey.

Foligno was drafted 3rd overall by the Detroit Red Wings in the 1979 NHL Entry Draft. He appeared in 1018 games, scoring 355 goals and 372 assists for 727 points, as well as adding 2049 penalty minutes. His best offensive season was 1985–86 with the Buffalo Sabres, when he scored 41 goals and 80 points, both career highs. He broke his foot while playing against Winnipeg on December 23, 1991, causing him to miss the majority of the season.

Foligno is perhaps best known for his trademark leap, dubbed the "Foligno Leap" after scoring a goal. Both of his two sons have passed on the Foligno Leap tradition.

Coaching and management career

Foligno has served as an assistant coach for the Toronto Maple Leafs, Colorado Avalanche, Anaheim Ducks, and the New Jersey Devils. He served as the general manager of the Sudbury Wolves and was also the head coach, including the time when both of his sons, Nick and Marcus, competed in the NHL before being drafted.

Foligno was hired as a scout for the expanding Vegas Golden Knights on September 21, 2016.
