Future Watch: Spencer Foo Rookie Hockey Cards, Flames – Spencer Foo was signed by the Calgary Flames as a free agent in the summer of 2017. The 6-0, 190-pound right winger had a nice resume.
In 2014-15, he joined the roster at Union. He had 11 goals and 25 points that season. That season the roster included Mike Vecchione (Flyers system) who won the NCAA Frozen Four the year before along with newly departed Shayne Gostisbehere (Flyers). Also, goaltender, Colin Stevens returned.
The next season, Foo scored 25 points again with 12 goals this time in 36 games. The team was much more successful than the 2015 team and they were the ECAC regular season champions in a tie with Harvard. They didn’t make the Frozen Four again, but it was a good season.
In 2016-17, Foo had a great season. In 38 games he had 26 goals and 62 points. He ended up being a Top 10 Hobey Baker Finalist. He didn’t win the award but that was an honor. He was ready to turn pro.
In 62 games with the Stockton Heat in the AHL, Foo had 20 goals and 39 points in 62 games. A solid rookie season. That season he was promoted to Calgary where he had two goals in four games.
Now 25, into his second AHL season he’s wearing the “A”. In his first 47 games he had 13 goals and 25 points. He has knack for scoring goals for sure. The Calgary Flames are poised to make the playoffs and the only question is, will Foo get called up as a depth player for that run at some point?
Here’s a look at his first NHL goal:
