Lightning's Cal Foote: Eighth healthy scratch in last 10
Foote has been a healthy scratch eight times in the Lightning's last 10 games, including the last three.
Foote and Haydn Fleury remain on the outside looking in more often than not, but they do play for one of the best teams in the league. And one with a strong top four or five guys. They've both been passed by first-year defender Nick Perbix. Foote is still just 24 and there's still time for him to grow into a more consistent bottom-pair defenseman. But even then, his fantasy contributions will likely be limited to hits and blocks.... See More ... See Less

He has been a healthy scratch three games out of the Bolts' last eight. Foote has not contributed points since he put in a goal in the second game of the season.

Lightning's Cal Foote: Moves up the lineup
Foote has been paired with Victor Hedman on Tampa Bay's top pairing in training camp.
That's a big jump for Foote, who mostly toiled on the Bolts' third pairing for 56 games in 2021-22 (two goals, seven assists). The 6-foot-4 defender did show an offensive touch in junior and has managed a 31-point season in the AHL. But Foote profiles as a sturdy, defensive puck mover who will be more valuable on the ice than in the fantasy arena.... See More ... See Less
