Foote assisted on a Carsen Twarynski (PHI, 2016 3rd round pick) power play goal in the 1st period and also on what would eventually be the game-winner by Erik Gardiner (undrafted) in the 2nd. The Rockets jumped out to a 3-2 lead over the Cougars in the 1st and then extended it to 6-2 in the 2nd behind two goals by Twarynski and two goals and an assist by Dillon Dube (CGY, 2016 2nd round pick). Prince George rallied in the 3rd, scoring three but could never muster the equalizer. For Foote, he equaled his points total (57) from last season in 21 fewer games.
