Observations: 

Nov 2017 - So far, Foo is contributing to the notion that you really need to hold the breaks on college prospects turning pro. He currently sits with five points in 15 AHL games, mostly playing on Stockton's second line. Foo had not contributed a point in his last 6 games. - Joel Henderson

 

Sept 2017 - Foo remains one who presents sneaky value in deep leagues if you competitors aren't paying attention. Through training camp, Foo has been a bright light. He competes every night, showing his patience and ability to play with quality players. They have not been afraid to use him on the PP and in late game situations. Regardless of how and when, expect Foo to play a decent amount of NHL games this year. - Joel Henderson

 

Spencer Foo spent three seasons with Union College in the NCAA and exploded on the scoresheet this past season. He found great chemistry with linemate Michael Vecchione and found success in all aspects of the game. He managed to gather 26 goals and 36 assists over 38 games and generated consistently at 5 on 5. He became a Hobey Baker Finalist and garnered significant attention from a few NHL clubs before surprisingly signing with Calgary Flames. He attended Calgary's development camp in the summer of 2016 and they had been keeping tabs on him since.  

Spencer Foo has good speed and skating ability and can push the tempo fairly easilyHis shot generation increased this season as well as his points but he shot 18% for the season. His line created consistently and often but one could surmise there were some lucky bounces among that skill. Foo can create off the rush and push the play into dirty areas. He has a nose for the net and great chemistry with teammates. He has some pretty decent hands in tight as well as above average playmaking vision. The reason for fantasy upside is the same that he chose to sign in Calgary; lack of prospect depth. Calgary has seen tenacious players earn minutes in the last few years and Foo might be the next in line. I'd imagine he pushes for a spot as soon as training camp, but might spend time down in Stockton getting used to the pro game.  Joel Henderson 

 

Fantasy Outlook C+ 

Foo has the ability to break into a lineup by being a positive corsi player and doing all the little things right. If he can show that his PK ability is consistent than he might win a 4th line role out of camp.
