A 1988, second round (21st overall) draft pick from the Brooklin Whitby midgets, Foote won an OHL championship with the Hounds in 1991, before helping the Colorado Avalanche secure Stanley Cup championships in 1996 and 2001.

"We started from scratch," he said of the 1988 89 campaign, a season in which the Hounds registered a 21 43 2 (wins, losses, ties) record, last in the Emms Division.

He praised former NHLer Troy Mallette, saying the Hounds first round draft choice (and first overall in the OHL) in 1986 was an outstanding leader for the young players who would eventually form the nucleus of an OHL champion.

With Foote often matched very successfully against Lindros in the league finals, the Soo stopped the Oshawa Generals in six games to win the second OHL title in franchise history.

Adam Foote, Adidas Basketball Shoes 2017 Black whose No. 5 Soo Greyhounds jersey will be retired Saturday, believes his three years in Sault Ste. Marie prepared him for a sterling 19 year career in the NHL.

Foote, who's expected to arrive in the Sault tonight with wife Jennifer and sons Callan, who's 13, and 11 year old Nolan, spoke of his early days with the Hounds and how he close he became with his teammates, coaches and fans in the city.

"Ted Nolan was definitely a player's coach and he taught me a lot. He prepared me to be a good pro," said Foote. "He was great for me and Boogie (Boughner) was the right choice to be our captain."
