Adam Foote
Defense Development Consultant

Former Avalanche defenseman Adam Foote just completed his second season on the team’s coaching staff. In his role, Foote works with the organization’s defensemen not only at the NHL level but also at the minor league, major junior and collegiate level as well.

Foote, 43, played 19 seasons in the NHL, 17 of those with the Avalanche/Nordiques franchise. He was a member of Colorado’s 1996 and 2001 Stanley Cup championship teams and helped the franchise capture an NHL-record nine consecutive division titles from 1995 to 2003. Originally selected by Quebec in the second round (22nd overall) of the 1989 Entry Draft, Foote appeared in more regular season (967) and playoff games (170) than any other defenseman in franchise history. Foote, who also spent two seasons as Colorado’s team captain (2009-11), had his No. 52 jersey retired by the organization on Nov. 2, 2013.

Overall, Foote amassed 308 points (66g/242a) and 1,534 penalty minutes in 1,154 career games with Quebec/Colorado and Columbus. The Toronto native represented Canada in three Olympics: 1998, 2002 and 2006, helping Canada win the gold medal at the 2002 Winter Olympic Games in Salt Lake City.

Adam and his wife, Jennifer, have two sons, Callan and Nolan.
