History

2010-11: Warren Foegele played for his hometown Markham Waxers organization in Ontario.

2011-12: Foegele played eight games, including two playoff contests, with the varsity team at Canada prep school St. Andrew’s College and played for the school’s junior varsity squad. He skated in 28 games for the Markham Waxers minor midget AAA team. Foegele had 1 assist with the St. Andrew’s varsity and scored 10 goals with 8 assists and 38 penalty minutes for the Waxers.

2012-13: Foegele was the leading scorer for St. Andrew’s in his second season. In 58 games he scored 37 goals with 36 assists and had 48 penalty minutes. The Saints finished the season 41-6-1 in league play and defeated Buffalo’s Nichols School in a three-game playoff series to capture the CISAA championship. In February, he committed to playing at the University of New Hampshire in 2015-16.

2013-14: Foegele emerged as a prospect with an outstanding senior season at St. Andrews, finishing with 107 points in 52 games for the Saints. He scored 58 goals with 49 assists as St. Andrews finished 45-3-2 and won the MPHL and CISAA titles. Originally slated to play junior hockey in the BCHL in 2014-15, he announced mid-season that he would graduate and instead attend New Hampshire in September, 2014. He was selected by Kingston in the seventh round (135th overall) of the 2014 OHL Priority Selection and was taken by Dubuque in the 19th round (306th overall) of the USHL Entry Draft. Foegele was ranked 66th amongst North American skaters in the Central Scouting final rankings and was selected by Carolina in the third round (67th overall) in the 2014 NHL Draft.

Talent Analysis

Foegele played at a lower level of prep hockey so his long-term potential is still a bit of an unknown but Carolina was impressed with his physical tools and room for development. He is a a big player that uses that size to advantage and plays a physical style. His best asset may be his speed, but he is also a determined player without the puck and possesses a hard shot.

Future

Foegele is in his freshman season at the University of New Hampshire in 2014-15. Skating in a third line role for the Wildcats he was providing supplemental scoring and playing a two-way game before suffering a concussion in November. Long-term, he should continue to develop during his college career and projects as a power forward with some scoring ability at the pro level.

Deciding when it is time to turn pro is tough on every prospect. For collegiate and European players, the choice is even harder. If a college player turns pro, they end their eligibility and leave college life. For Europeans, the stakes are often higher; leaving home to come to North America and adapt to not just a different style of hockey, but a different life altogether. Read more»
