Another forward of note from the USHL for the 2015 NHL Draft is Erik Foley of the Cedar Rapids Roughriders. The Massachusetts native is a long way from home right now but enjoying a fine season at the top of the USHL standings.
Foley's year began in the Czech Republic representing his country at the scouting showcase that is the Ivan Hlinka Memorial tournament. His play there and in Cedar Rapids has earned him a top-60 ranking from NHL Central Scouting on their mid-term list.
We were happy to have Foley on The Pipeline Show in early December where we got to know more of his personality and background. The well spoken Foley is headed to Providence College next season to join the Friars which is just one of the things we talked about.
If you missed Foley's appearance on TPS, no worries, we have it for you after the jump.
