Cal Foote ready for training camp with LightningAugust 1, 2018 10:46 am
BRANDON, FL – Cal Foote never has to go far for advice on how to prepare for a career in the NHL.
The 19-year-old defenseman, who was selected by the Tampa Bay Lightning with the No. 14 pick in the 2017 NHL Draft, just turns to his father, Adam, who played 19 NHL seasons and won the Stanley Cup with the Colorado Avalanche in 1996 and 2001.
“We’re a hockey family through and through with my dad, my mom and my brother,” Foote said. “So we’re always talking about hockey and my dad is always there to tell us about his experiences in the NHL and offer advice on what we can do to be the best players we can be.”
