Putting right Foote forward

It's been a busy summer for Kelowna Rockets forward Nolan Foote.

After being drafted by the Tampa Bay Lightning in the first round, Foote has been shining with Team Canada at the World Junior Summer Showcase in Plymouth, Mich.

Foote has racked up 6 points in 3 games, leading all Canadian players with 2 goals and 4 assists.

Foote helped Canada down the host U.S. 4-1 in the tournament opener on July 30 with a goal and two assists. He gave Canada a two-goal advantage in the third when he spun in the high slot and beat Everett Silvertips netminder Dustin Wolf over the glove.
 
On Friday he picked up an assist in Canada's 5-2 win over Sweden. Connor McMichael deflected Foote's drive in from the deep slot for a five-on-three goal.

He scored a goal and set up another in the Summer Showcase finale on Saturday, but Canada fell 5-3 to the United States. Foote snuck a backhand just across the goal-line behind U.S. netminder Spencer Knight only 56 seconds into the middle frame.
 
The 2020 IIHF World Junior Championship begins Boxing Day in Ostrava and Trinec, Czech Republic.
