Cal Foote shows why he is a huge prospect in AHL playoff debut

SYRACUSE, N.Y. – Cal Foote is still only 19 years old.

Watching him play, it seems hard to believe, but the 14th overall pick by the Tampa Bay Lightning in the 2017 National Hockey League Draft, still has room to grow both literally and figuratively.

Making his professional playoff debut for the Syracuse Crunch, the 6-foot-4, 212 pound defenseman — yes, he’s the son of Colorado Avalanche legend Adam Foote — led all skaters with five shots on goal in the Crunch’s convincing 6-2 win over the Rochester Americans in Game 1 of the American Hockey League North Division semifinals.

He showed a smoothness in both his game as a whole, but in particular his skating that are uncommon for someone his size, and seems to be on track to follow in the footsteps of his famous father to have a lengthy NHL career.

My family and I have worked with Kevin Magnuson and KO sports since 2006 after Kevin saw me play in the USHL Fall Classic for Waterloo. Kevin has helped guide me through the USHL, NCAA and NHL and all the good and bad that comes with each League. His experience as a former practicing attorney was really helpful in negotiating all three of my NHL contracts. Kevin and KO Sports were especially prepared for the salary arbitration hearing we had in 2015 with Nashville that ended with me eventually earning an awesome, life changing 5-year deal.
