Rockets’ Foote named alternate captain at Canada Russia Series

Nolan Foote will look to lead Team WHL at the upcoming series which starts Nov. 4

Nolan Foote, who recently named the Rockets’ 25th franchise captain, has now been named an alternate captain for the upcoming Canada Russia Series.

The series starts Nov. 4 with exhibition matches between the Russian junior national team and league all-stars from the Canadian Hockey League and is a staple showcase for up-and-coming young talent making their way into professional leagues.

Foote will join fellow Rockets’ Kaedan Korczak and Dillon Hamaliuk at the series for Team WHL who will play Team Russia in Saskatchewan in a double-header on Nov. 13 and 14.

Leading the Rockers with 16 points, Foote has been a force for Kelowna since returning from NHL camps during the summer after he was drafted 27th overall by the Tampa Bay Lightning at the 2019 NHL draft.

Foote was named the Rockets captain on Oct. 18 and has led Kelowna to a 7-4-1-1 start to the season.
