It didn't take long for Nick Foligno to get settled in his new home.
Dealt to the Columbus Blue Jackets on July 1 in exchange for defenceman Marc Methot, the former Senators winger agreed to a three-year, $9.25-million deal Friday.
Foligno, a RFA who had filed for arbitration Thursday, is scheduled to make $2.5 million next season, $3 million 2013-14 and $3.75 million in 2014-15. The 24-year-old had 15 goals, 32 assists and 47 points last year with Ottawa.
He made $1.2 million last season and finished with 61-87-148 points with 299 penalty minutes in 351 career games with the Senators.
