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.”

As an aspiring professional hockey player, one of the most challenging things that both the athlete and family face is selecting the right person to help guide us through the journey.  For our family, this proved to be very true.  We considered it very fortunate that John was introduced and came to work with Kurt.  Since we began working with Kurt and his staff, they have given us guidance and sound advice every step of the way.  Kurt’s unparalleled knowledge of the hockey world and professional demeanor gave us the utmost confidence that John’s career is being managed properly.  We can’t imagine anyone else filling the role that he does for our family.  Lastly, we highly recommend Kurt and KO Sports to any young athlete that has the dream of becoming a professional hockey player.
