Scouting Report

Scouting Comments: 

Has all the physical tools you could ask for: size, strength, speed and quickness... Good blend of skill and savvy, but in his 3rd full WHL season, he’s left us wanting more most of the year. -- Red Line Report

Strengths: 

Safe prospect with a very high floor that should play in the NHL due to his bloodlines and hockey sense in all three zones. Plays a power game from the wing position with excellent size, strength, and a hard shot. Like his brother, he's positionally mature despite his age and plays a solid 200 foot game. Possesses a wickedly heavy shot that the Lightning believe is already NHL caliber.

Weaknesses: 

There's substantial disagreement within the scouting community about Foote's skating and/or motor. Some attribute his lack of burst to a flaw in his skating stride. Others believe his skating is solid, but doesn't always apply himself and may be bored with the junior hockey level. The truth may be somewhere in between.

Projection: 

Solid two-way third liner who can spot on a scoring line as a complementary winger
