Not as physically imposing as his dad Adam Foote, but has better offensive instincts and ability, Cal Foote will get chance to learn from one of the best, Victor Hedman after being selected 14th overall by the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Cale Foot - Kelowna Rockets (WHL)

Position: D
Born: December 13, 1998 - Englewood, Colorado, United States
Height: 6’4"
Weight: 213 lbs.
Shoots: Right
Drafted: 2013 WHL Draft - Round 2 (43rd overall) by the Kelowna Rockets

Son of NHL defenceman Adam Foote, Callan Foote is yet another talented defenceman ready to come out of the Kelowna Rockets system. Foote raised many eyebrows in his underage season not only for his defensive play, but his offensive skills as well by posting 36 points in 71 games. A great skater in both directions,  he is quick on his edges and his East-to-West skating gives him the chance to cover the ice effectively. Foote is not naturally mean or aggressive but can take care of himself. He has a hard slap shot from the point and keeps it low which leaves rebounds for his forwards to clean up. In last year’s Western Conference Finals, Foote played a key role in Kelowna and will anchor the team’s young defence corps this season. He will only get better as he begins to fill his already huge frame.

DID YOU KNOW? While Foote was born, raised and played his minor hockey in Colorado, he is registered with Hockey Canada and despite his dual citizenship, will suit up for Canada for any international competition.
