FIRST-ROUND PICK FOUDY COMMITS
(Windsor, ON) – Jean-Luc Foudy has committed to the Spitfires, agreeing to a Standard Player Agreement with general manager Warren Rychel.
Foudy, 16, was the club’s first-round pick (#10 overall) in the 2018 Ontario Hockey League Priority Selection. He excelled with the Toronto Titans Minor Midget AAAs last season, posting 25 goals and 35 assists in 52 regular season games.
Rychel says the talented centre is a big add to a young group on the rise.
“Jean-Luc is a very intelligent player that can make things happen with the puck,” Rychel said. “Our fans will appreciate his offensive game.”
Foudy’s father Sean played for the Canadian Football League’s Ottawa Rough Riders and B.C. Lions, while his mother, France Gareau, competed for Canada in track and field at the 1984 Olympic Games in Los Angeles.
“He obviously comes from a very athletic family,” Rychel added. “That should serve him well as he continues through his hockey career.”
