Union rising junior forward Spencer Foo took a somewhat unconventional route after the season, announcing his intention to leave Union prior to his senior season, but not choosing which team he would be signing with.
On Tuesday, Foo made his choice, opting to sign with the Calgary Flames.

Foo, along with linemate Mike Vecchione, was one of the top scorers in the nation last season. Foo scored 26-36-62 in 38 games, which ranked fourth in the nation in overall scoring.
Foo is a complete forward that relies on his speed and grittiness to make plays. He developed tremendous chemistry with linemate Vecchione over the past three years which helped him put up big statistics.
He was pursued by a number of NHL teams before ultimately deciding on Calgary. Foo will sign his contract on July 1st when the NHL’s free agent signing window opens.
