Smart As A Fox
Mar 03, 2020Posted by james

Adam Fox is from Jericho right here on Long Island. He is playing professional hockey for his favorite team. Sorry, Islanders fans—he’s an emerging star for the New York Rangers.

Adam is a Harvard University graduate who was drafted by the Calgary Flames and then traded to the Carolina Hurricanes organization. He became Rangers property almost a year ago.

Adam has been listed by scouts as a stud player with fantastic offensive ability. He passes the puck quickly and moves well in all zones of the ice. His defense originally may have been labeled as “unknown” or “developing,” but during his first NHL season he has positioned himself as an anchor on the Rangers blueline. Adam also maintains a high IQ on the ice. He understands game situations, he reads plays well as each unfolds in front of him and he quickly makes necessary adjustments on the ice.

The hockey journey for Adam since he first put on his skates on Long Island has provided him with success at every level. His achievements include:

  • 2017 World Junior Hockey Championships gold medal with Team USA, recording four points in seven games.
  • 2018 World Junior Hockey Championships bronze medal with Team USA, leading the defense in assists and points as alternate captain.
  • At Harvard, became the only defenseman in college hockey to average more than a point-and-a-half per game. Led Harvard to the NCAA Tournament on several occasions.
  • Finalist for the Hobey Baker Award that is presented to the best college hockey player.

According to former Rangers defenseman Dave Maloney, Adam has the potential to become a major factor on the backline for New York for many years. “…it’s going to be his ability,” said Dave, “to have the sense of where he needs to be and how he needs to get there [that is going to help him succeed].”
