Warren Foegele (3rd round, 67th overall pick)
Warren Foegele has continuously and statistically become better every season he has been in the Hurricanes organization. The young Canadian forward has shown glimpses of what he may bring to the table to the Canes for years to come with speed and aggressiveness.
In his lone season with the Charlotte Checkers, Foegele finished 5th on the team in scoring as an AHL rookie with 46 points. Foegele was also named the Charlotte Checkers rookie of the year in the 2017-2018 season.

Foegele has been a player that the Canes saw blossom this past post-season. In the 2019 Stanley Cup Playoffs, Foegele accumulated 9 points in 15 playoff games after only producing 15 points in 77 games during the regular season campaign. With the team having a few injuries, Foegele was able to receive extended minutes with the top 6 unit of the Canes and he excelled.
Foegele should continue to be a speedy power-forward with a knack for drawing penalties and scoring. If Foegele can become more disciplined and develop a better slap-shot, then this third round pick could look like a steal.
