Callan Foote following in father’s footsteps
Callan Foote of Kelowna of the Western Hockey League, one of the top defensemen eligible for the 2017 NHL Draft, stands out for a number of reasons.
But the No. 1 thing people seem to notice about him are his feet.
“He’s got something like size 16 or 17 feet, so he’s working into those,” Kelowna assistant general manager Lorne Frey said.
Said Colorado Avalanche forward Matt Duchene, who lived with Foote and his family during his first two NHL seasons, “The kid’s had bigger feet than me from the time I’ve known him.”
When Duchene moved in, Foote was 10 years old.
Foote, who said his feet are size 16, has heard all manner of jokes about them, and even makes them himself.
