Foudy scored a goal on three shots in Sunday's 3-0 Game 5 elimination victory over Toronto.
Foudy's goal with 8:20 left in regulation was a backbreaker for the Maple Leafs, who were caught making a brutal line change while trailing 1-0. Foudy had time and space to walk out from the corner and bested Toronto goalie Frederik Andersen five-hole from below the faceoff circle. It was the first career NHL goal for the 20-year-old, who was entrusted with over 17 minutes of ice time in the elimination game. The young center, a first-round pick in 2018, had appeared in only two regular-season games for the Blue Jackets prior to playoffs.
Foudy will be with the Blue Jackets for the 24-team playoffs, Aaron Portzline of The Athletic reports.
Foudy put together a fantastic season with OHL London, as he racked up 28 goals and 40 helpers in just 45 outings before the league shut down. Drafted by the Jackets 18th overall in the 2018 NHL Draft, the 20-year-old winger will get the chance to cut his teeth in the playoffs and should be considered a near-lock for the 2020-21 Opening Night roster.
Foudy was on an 18-game point streak for London when the OHL season was suspended, Brian Hedger of The Columbus Dispatch reports.
The 18th overall pick in the 2018 draft was having the breakout campaign in junior the Jackets were hoping for, and Foudy had racked up 28 goals and 68 points through only 45 games when hockey was put on pause. After already getting a cup of coffee in the NHL on an emergency recall this season, expect the 20-year-old to push for a spot in Columbus next season.
Foudy was reassigned to OHL London on Friday.
In two games with the Jackets, Foudy notched one assist, three shots and three hits while averaging 14:13 of ice time. With his junior team playing games Friday and Saturday, it's possible Columbus recalls the youngster ahead of Sunday's clash with the Devils. In the meantime. Jacob Lilja was brought up from AHL Cleveland in a corresponding roster move.
Foudy will be recalled from OHL London and will suit up versus the Sabres on Thursday, Blue Jackets team reporter Jeff Svoboda reports.
Foudy saw 10:23 of ice time in his previous appearance for the Blue Jackets and will now get another look with Cam Atkinson (ankle) facing an extended absence. Until Josh Anderson (shoulder) is cleared to play, Foudy will likely remain with Columbus to help bolster an already thin forward group.
The Blue Jackets demoted Foudy to OHL London on Monday.
Foudy made his NHL debut in Monday's contest against the Lightning, recording two shots on goal in 10:21 of ice time. He'll head back to OHL London, where he has 43 points in 32 games this season.
Foudy was recalled from OHL London on Sunday and will make his NHL debut Monday against Tampa Bay.
It's not often a player jumps directly from junior hockey to the NHL in-season like this, but there's plenty to be excited about with Foudy. Drafted 18th overall in the 2018 NHL Entry Draft, the 20-year-old forward has 20 goals and 43 points in 32 OHL games this season. Columbus currently has six skaters on injured reserve -- including four forwards -- so Foudy will make his NHL debut Monday against the Lightning.
Foudy picked up a goal and an assist in OHL London's 4-0 shutout of Erie on Sunday.
Foudy is raging hot. He has eight points in his last four games and has been held off the score sheet just once in his first 14 appearances this season. Columbus's 2016 first-rounder (18th overall) is clearly over the upper-body injury he suffered in the Traverse City Prospects Tournament in September.
Foudy (upper body) was loaned to OHL London on Monday.
Foudy was injured in the Blue Jackets' prospect tournament, delaying the start of his season. He'll return to OHL London, where he notched 36 goals and 68 points in 62 games last season. There's a chance that the 19-year-old forward could see a late-season call-up to Columbus.
Foudy will be sidelined 4-6 weeks due to an upper-body injury suffered in the Blue Jackets' prospect tournament, Aaron Portzline of The Athletic reports.
Foudy has already linked up with his junior club OHL London where he will work on his recovery, but will technically remain on the books for Columbus until he is cleared to play, at which point he will be officially reassigned. In 62 games with the Knights last year, the 19-year-old notched 36 goals and 32 assists and should be able to put up similar numbers this year despite missing time.
Foudy picked up an undisclosed injury that will keep him sidelined during training camp, Aaron Portzline of The Athletic reports.
Even healthy, Foudy would have been a long shot to break into the 23-man roster this season. The center figures to start the year in the minors, but assuming he avoids a long-term injury, should be atop the list of potential call-ups throughout the 2019-20 campaign.
Foudy was assigned to AHL Cleveland on Thursday.
The Blue Jackets selected Foudy with the 18th overall pick in the 2018 draft. He ascends from OHL London -- where he compiled 123 points (69 goals, 54 assists) in 127 games -- to help the Monsters make a run at the Calder Cup. As with most first-round picks, Foudy is worth keeping tabs on as a potential dynasty stash for fantasy pools.
Foudy scored twice and added an assist to lead OHL London to a 4-2 win over Windsor on Sunday.
Foudy has now tallied at least one point in each of his last seven contests. For the season, Columbus' 2018 first-round pick now has 12 goals and 21 points in 20 games for the Knights. The recent additions of Evan Bouchard (EDM) and Alex Formenton (OTT) from the NHL ranks have greatly bolstered London's offensive depth and Foudy's scoring output should continue to increase the rest of the way.
