Lightning's Cal Foote: Rejoins active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foote was promoted to the active roster Wednesday, per CapFriendly.

Foote will likely be a depth option on defense during the postseason. He made 35 appearances this season, racking up three points, a plus-9 rating, 39 hits, 29 PIM and 40 shots on net as a rookie.

Lightning's Cal Foote: Bounced to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foote was reassigned to AHL Syracuse on Friday.

Foote has tallied three assists and a plus-9 rating in 35 games with the Lightning as a rookie this season. The 22-year-old blueliner will likely be back with the big club in the near future.

Lightning's Cal Foote: Sent back to taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foote was assigned to the taxi squad Wednesday, per CapFriendly.

Foote's presence in the lineup for Thursday's game versus the Stars likely depends on the status of David Savard (lower body). The 22-year-old Foote has three points in 35 appearances this year.

Lightning's Cal Foote: Emergency recall Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foote was recalled to the active roster under emergency conditions Tuesday, per CapFriendly.

David Savard (lower body) is out, so Foote's presence was needed in the lineup. The 22-year-old Foote is playing in Tuesday's game versus the Blackhawks. He has three points in 34 appearances so far in 2020-21.

Lightning's Cal Foote: Chips in with helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foote produced an assist and two shots on goal in Thursday's 4-3 loss to the Stars.

With Ryan McDonagh and Erik Cernak both sidelined by lower-body injuries, Foote saw a season-high 23:52 of ice time Thursday. He also collected his first NHL assist on a Yanni Gourde goal. Foote has two points, 26 shots on net, 30 hits, 22 blocked shots and a plus-5 rating through 26 games as a rookie. A first-round pick from 2017, Foote has seen mostly sheltered minutes as he acclimates to the NHL level.

Lightning's Cal Foote: Slowly gaining confidence
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foote has just one goal in 24 games this season.

The big defender has been seeing consistent playing time in the month of March but has no points to show for it. Foote's ice time has ranged from 10:45 to 12-14 minutes, and he's getting plenty of offensive zone starts. The Bolts are sheltering Foote to allow him to develop and he's gaining confidence. His fantasy value will come, but it will be several seasons before his yield warrants rostering him.

Lightning's Cal Foote: Back in lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foote was promoted to the active roster Wednesday, per CapFriendly.

Foote played 12:03 in a 3-0 win over the Hurricanes, adding two hits and two PIM. The 22-year-old blueliner remains a rotational player for the Lightning -- he'll likely shuffle between the active roster and the taxi squad throughout the season.

Lightning's Cal Foote: Drops to taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foote was reassigned to the taxi squad Monday, per CBS Sports.

Foote has appeared in nine of the Lightning's 14 games this season, registering a single goal and a plus-6 rating. There's a decent chance he returns to the active roster prior to Thursday's game versus the Stars.

February 13, 2021 07:16 PM
Lightning's Cal Foote: Surfaces on active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foote was activated from the taxi squad Saturday, CBS Sports reports.

Foote will enter the lineup for Saturday's game versus the Panthers. The 2017 first-round pick (14th overall) has played eight NHL games this year, registering a point and a plus-6 rating.

Lightning's Cal Foote: Shifts to taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foote was assigned to Tampa Bay's taxi squad Friday, per CBS.

This could be a paper move, as it wouldn't be surprising to see Foote back on the active roster ahead of Saturday's game versus Florida. He's potted one goal through eight games this campaign.

Lightning's Cal Foote: Bounces between levels
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foote was assigned to the taxi squad and then called up in time to play in Thursday's 5-2 loss to the Panthers, per CBS Sports.

Foote typically draws into the lineup when the Lightning deploy seven defensemen. He has one goal, a plus-6 rating and five shots on net through eight outings. Foote will likely continue to move between the active roster and the taxi squad as the Lightning manage their salary cap.

Lightning's Cal Foote: Rises to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foote was called up from the taxi squad to the active roster Tuesday, per CBS Sports.

Foote has one goal, five hits and a plus-7 rating in seven contests this season, but he'll be a healthy scratch for Tuesday's game versus the Predators. He's most likely to draw into the lineup when the Lightning deploy seven defensemen and 11 forwards.

Lightning's Cal Foote: Heads down to taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foote was reassigned to the taxi squad Monday, per CBS Sports.

Foote was a healthy scratch for Monday's matchup with Nashville as coach Jon Cooper opted to return to a 12/6 alignment and put Alexander Volkov back in the lineup. It certainly won't be the last time Foote is flipped between the active roster and taxi squad, but his performance this season could see him avoid the minors this year.

Lightning's Cal Foote: Nets first NHL goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foote scored his first NHL goal Saturday in a 4-3 victory over Nashville.

It was a sweet one-timer from the right dot that he blew past Pekka Rinne low on the blocker side. The second-generation NHLer will treasure that puck and hope that he can some day match his dad Adam's two Stanley Cups. Foote only played 8:44 on the night, so he may end up back on the taxi squad sooner than later. No need to roster him. It was just a nice night for the kid.

Lightning's Cal Foote: Inserted into lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foote has been promoted to the active roster and will be in the lineup for Saturday's game versus the Blue Jackets, Erik Erlendsson of LightningInsider.com reports.

Foote will skate on Tampa Bay's third pairing during Saturday's contest. The 22-year-old American registered one hit in 10:59 of ice time in his lone appearance with the big club this season.

January 15, 2021 04:00 PM
Lightning's Cal Foote: Sent to taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tampa Bay assigned Foote to its taxi squad Friday, per TSN.

Foote made his NHL debut Wednesday against Chicago, posting a plus-2 rating and one hit in just under 11 minutes of ice time. The 22-year-old blueliner will likely continue to jump back and forth between the Lightning's active roster and taxi squad this season, so he won't be worth a roster spot in most standard fantasy formats.

Lightning's Cal Foote: Earns NHL job
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foote has made the opening night lineup, reports the Tampa Bay Times.

Veteran Luke Schenn was waived, leaving Foote as the last man standing on the blue line. The move provides the Bolts with the greatest cap flexibility and means that Foote can go between the active roster and the taxi squad with ease. It's complicated, but because the team is using its LTIR this season, Foote carries a $500,000 lower cap hit if he's on the opening night roster. And it puts his salary under the $1 million threshold that allows him to be recalled from the taxi squad as an emergency replacement. It's all about the way performance bonuses are managed. Still, Foote performed well in camp and deserves the seventh spot over Schenn.

Lightning's Cal Foote: Signs deal with Lightning
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foote inked a three-year, entry-level deal with Tampa Bay and is expected to report to AHL Syracuse.

The 14th overall pick in the 2017 NHL Draft, Foote torched the WHL this season, racking up 19 goals and 70 points with a plus-31 rating. While it's unlikely that Foote makes it up to the NHL level this season, he should find a way to crack the big-league lineup at some point next year.
