Nick and Marcus Foligno have been fixtures across NHL circles since the early 2010s, offering heady play, consistent goal-scoring, and memorable sound bytes.
In many ways, they’re the NHL’s modern-day answer to the Kelce brothers. They haven’t hit quite the heights of their contemporaries — neither Foligno brother has captured a Stanley Cup title, nor do they appear destined for Hall-of-Fame enshrinement — but they are ever-present in a rapidly changing terrain. That’s gotta be worth something, right?
As is the case with their spiritual doppelgängers, the Foligno Bros. come to life when the camera is around. With the whole of the world watching on Wednesday evening, Nick and Marcus offered a glimpse of the star power they possess — a quality that might very well surpass their more famous footballing counterparts.
What did Nick & Marcus Foligno say about Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce?
Speaking with TNT’s pregame crew ahead of the Blackhawks’ clash with the Wild, the Folignos offered nuggets of wisdom to the masses. When former NHL forward and funnyman Paul Bissonnette asked for Nick and Marcus’ view on Travis, Jason, Taylor Swift, and the bonds that tie them all together, let’s just say that the NHL foes announced themselves to the world.
Biz Nasty asked his former comrades if they would consider starting up a hockey podcast like Travis and Jason. Older brother Nick had strong words in response, all the while earning brownie points with their significant others in the process.
“I don’t think we’re that interesting,” Marcus Foligno said. “None of us are dating Taylor Swift.”
To which Nick replied with the following:
“Our wives are hotter.”
“Travis is dating Taylor Swift but our wives are hotter” 😭

The elder Foligno’s comment drew a chuckle from the pre-game panelists, perhaps indicating the Folignos’ popularity among those situated around the game.
Biz Nasty had perhaps the cleanest rebuttal for Nick and Marcus’ charm:
“That’s good,” Bissonnette said. “You’re not going to end up in the dog house.”
Who are Nick Foligno’s and Marcus Foligno’s wives?
Nick Foligno married his wife Janelle in 2011, and the couple has three children. Marcus Foligno married his wife Natascia in 2016., and the couple has two children
On Wednesday, the Folignos visited 250 elementary school students in South Boston to promote heart health through exercise & balanced meals.
Janelle Foligno also read her book ‘Dear Heart’ to the kids, who participated in a hockey gear relay race and a raffle for B’s prizes 🖤💛 pic.twitter.com/Lhs0x1SD9j

Not only are the Folignos good players, but they’re also doting, media-savvy husbands. You can’t get much better than that.
