Flames win the Spencer Foo sweepstakes

The results are in, and the Flames have won.

Spencer Foo, the 23-year-old coveted college free agent winger has chosen Calgary.

As reported by TSN’s Bob McKenzie, Foo will sign with the Flames on July 1. The deal will be a two-year entry-level contract.

The Edmonton native (who the Oilers were interested in) finished second in ECAC scoring in the NCAA last season with 62 points (26-36-62) in 38 games for Union College. The 6-foot-0, 185-pound forward was a Hobey Baker finalist in 2016-17.

Given that the Flames were without a second and third round draft pick this year, adding a prospect like Foo to the fold is like found money.

We’ll begin to get an idea how good he can be once training camp starts in September.
