Kelowna Rockets’ captain Nolan Foote has been traded to the New Jersey Devils.

The Devils acquired Foote and a 2020 first-round pick from the Tampa Bay Lightning in exchange for forward Blake Coleman.

The first-round pick being sent to the New Jersey Devils was originally acquired by Tampa Bay in the J.T. Miller trade with the Vancouver Canucks last summer.

Foote has 15 goals and 33 points in 26 WHL games this season. In total, the 19-year-old has posted 83 goals and 171 points in 194 WHL career games. He could make his long-awaited return from injury on Monday night when the Kelowna Rockets host the Calgary Hitmen.
