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.

2014-15: Foegele skated in 34 of 40 games for the University of New Hampshire in his freshman season. He scored 5 goals with 11 assists and was -3 with 26 penalty minutes. The Wildcats finished eighth in Hockey East and reached the Hockey East tournament semifinals, falling to eventual champion Boston University, 4-1. 

Talent Analysis

Foegele is a speedy late bloomer who has the skills to become a dangerous scorer and forechecker. He took a big step up in competition last season, playing as a freshman at the University of New Hampshire and finishing with 16 points — including five goals — in 34 games. Stronger and faster heading into his sophomore season, Foegele needs to show he can be a consistent scoring threat in 2015-16.

Future

Foegele is a sophomore at UNH this season, so he still has two years after this season to prove he’s worthy of an NHL contract. He should get a chance to be a top-six forward for the Wildcats this year, and if his scoring develops he could figure in Carolina’s top-nine down the road.

It wasn’t long ago that the Carolina Hurricanes prospect pool looked ankle deep. Straight-to-the-NHL first rounders and struggles developing middle and late-round draft picks kept the Hurricanes at the bottom of the NHL standings. Read more»

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»

The Carolina Hurricanes prospects list might look thin, but given the young talent already in the NHL it is easy to understand why. Five players drafted by the team since 2010 are already full-time Hurricanes or on the cusp of making the leap. That includes ahead-of the-curve Victor Rask, who climbs a few spots into the top three but will also soon graduate as a prospect. Read more»
