CALGARY – Coveted college free agent Spencer Foo has committed to signing with the Calgary Flames.
A standard players’ contract with the 23-year-old forward from Edmonton will become official Saturday, the Flames said Tuesday in a release.
Foo compiled 26 goals and 36 assists in 38 games as a junior for Union College this past season.
The six-foot, 185-pound right-winger was a finalist for the Hobey Baker Award that goes to the top player in NCAA Division 1 men’s hockey.
Foo played two seasons for the Alberta Junior Hockey League’s Bonneyville Pontiacs prior to his college career.
Flames general manager Brad Treliving continued a run of high-profile moves in snagging Foo.
