2014 NHL Draft: Carolina Hurricanes Select Warren Foegele with 67th Pick


With the 67th pick in the 2014 NHL Draft, the Carolina Hurricanes selected Warren Foegele, a left winger out of St. Andrews College, a Canadian prep school.

Warren Foegele had a huge year as an alternate captain with St. Andrews College in the Canadian High School league. He scored 58 goals and had 49 assists in 52 regular season games played.

Being a hard working two-way winger, Warren Foegele has the drive and work ethic to achieve a lot. Many scouts believed that he could have been a second round pick in the 2014 NHL Draft.

Warren Foegele is the first forward to be drafted by the Carolina Hurricanes in the 2014 NHL Draft. He’ll join Haydn Fleury and Alex Nedeljkovic as fellow draftees from in the 2014 Draft.

After being draft, Warren Foegele described himself as a “two-way power forward”.

Warren Foegele trains with former Carolina Hurricanes forward Gary Roberts during the offseason. Jeff Skinner, Carolina Hurricanes winger, has also spent summers with Gary Roberts in the past.

Here’s what a scout told TSN about Foegele back in January, 2014:

“He’s a kid everyone is going in to look at now. There’s a lot of interest in him right now, so we’ll see how does with a lot of scrutiny. There are always skeptics for players playing at that level but he’s a legit NHL prospect.”

Warren Foegele is committed to play at the University of New Hampshire in the fall.

The Carolina Hurricanes have four picks left in their draft, as of now.
