Foudy, 18, had 43 points (15 goals) in 59 games for the Windsor Spitfires of the Ontario Hockey League last season. He led all OHL rookies with 41 assists in 2018-19. Foudy’s brother, Liam, was the 18th pick of the Columbus Blue Jackets in the 2018 draft.
The Foudy brothers’ parents also are athletic. In the 1984 summer Olympics, France Gareau anchored Canada’s silver-medal relay team. And their father, Sean Foudy, played six seasons in the Canadian Football League.
