Nick Foligno (born October 31, 1987) is a professional ice hockey player with the Ottawa Senators of the National Hockey League (NHL). He was chosen in the first round, 28th overall by the club in the 2006 NHL Entry Draft. His father, Mike Foligno, also played in the NHL.

Nick Foligno played for the U.S National Development Under-18 team in 2003–04 before joining the Sudbury Wolves of the OHL, a team coached by his father, Mike Foligno. Nick played three seasons for Sudbury before turning professional in 2007. Foligno showed steady improvement throughout his junior career, and in his final OHL season he contributed 88 points in only 66 games.

On March 21, 2007, Senators' general manager John Muckler announced the club had agreed to terms on an entry level contract with Foligno, and he split the 2007–08 season between Ottawa and their AHL affiliate in Binghamton. He played his first NHL regular-season game on October 1, 2007. He is known for an outstanding work ethic and gritty style of play, combined with some offensive flair. "He plays like his dad, I’ll tell you that," said former Senators' general manager John Muckler. "He’s a gritty player. He has a little bit of sandpaper to him". Upon scoring his first NHL goal (against the Montreal Canadiens) he performed his father's noted goal celebration, the Foligno Leap.
