Foote aims to play alongside brother one day with Lightning

BRANDON, FL –  Nolan Foote got his first taste of Florida in the final week of June while participating in Tampa Bay Lightning development camp after he was selected in the first round (No. 27) in the 2019 NHL Draft last month.

“It’s hot here,” Foote said.

Luckily, Foote spent most of his time in Florida on the ice, where he could avoid the heat but not the power skating drills taught by instructor Tracy Sutton.

“The legs are sore,” Foote said. “Really sore, but that’s what you want.”
