Minor hockey

Foote grew up playing hockey for the Brooklin-Whitby Minor Hockey Association (OMHA). He was a minor hockey teammate of former NHL'er Keith Primeau for several years leading their teams to several OMHA "AA" Championships in the early 1980s.

After a successful Midget season with Brooklin-Whitby's AA team, Foote was a 2nd round underage choice (21st overall) of the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds in the 1988 OHL Priority Selection.

Foote went on to play three OHL seasons with the Greyhounds - the last one for future NHL head coach Ted Nolan.

Playing career

Foote was selected 22nd overall by the Quebec Nordiques in the 1989 NHL Entry Draft. He played for Quebec for four seasons until the franchise moved to Colorado (and became the Colorado Avalanche), where he played for nine seasons. He has won two Stanley Cups (1996, 2001) and a gold medal for Canada at the 2002 Winter Olympics. A physical presence, he is known for his gritty, sometimes dirty (though never intentionally injurious) play, and has occasionally been assigned to "shadow" opposing teams' premiere forwards.

On August 1, 2005, Foote signed a 3-year contract worth $13.5 million with the Columbus Blue Jackets and was immediately named an alternate captain. He became the Blue Jackets' captain in December of that year (Luke Richardson resigned the captaincy).

Foote was selected to play for Team Canada at the 2006 Olympics.

On February 26, 2008, amid some controversy, Foote was traded from the Blue Jackets back to the Colorado Avalanche in exchange for two conditional draft picks. Later that night, he arrived in Calgary during the first period to play against the Flames. Foote managed 1 goal and 15 assists for a total of 16 points in 75 games with the Avs and Blue Jackets combined.

On June 30, 2008, Foote agreed to re-sign with the Avalanche with a two year 6-million dollar deal where he will earn 3-million in each season.
