Blues prospect fails physical; career in jeopardy

september 13, 2019
St. Louis Blues general manager Doug Armstrong gave an update on one of the team's young prospects on the opening day of training camp, and it's not looking like a good situation. 22-year-old Erik Foley suffered a concussion during the annual Traverse City Prospects tournament in 2018 and hasn't played hockey since. Armstrong told members of the media that "it doesn't look good for [Foley]" adding "there's no light at the end of the tunnel." Armstrong also reported that Foley failed his most recent physical and it appears he is nowhere close to resuming skating.

Foley was acquired by the Blues from Winnipeg in a trade that sent Paul Stastny to the Jets. He was drafted in the 3rd round, 78th overall, by Winnipeg in 2015. The American managed 35 points, including 16 goals, in 38 games with Providence College of the NCAA in 2017-2018. Unfortunately, those were his last games. He was assigned to the San Antonio Rage of the AHL at the start of last season, but has never played a game.

Foley has been described as "a bull in a China shop" and a player who "takes it to the net and can't be stopped." Sadly, it appears he may never get the chance to show off his chops in the NHL.
