Atlantic Youth Hockey League


Fox named Alternate Captain for World Juniors

BUFFALO, N.Y. (December 23, 2017) – Atlantic Youth Hockey League (AYHL) alumnus defenseman Adam Fox was announced as one of the three alternate captains for Team USA at the 2018 IIHF World Junior Championships in Buffalo, New York.

Fox was one of seven returning players for Team USA who skated for the gold medal-winning 2017 U.S. National Junior Team last year. Joining Fox in leading the United States contingent will be captain Joey Anderson, along with Kiefer Bellows and Ryan Lindgren.

Last year, the Jericho, New York native helped the United States go 7-0 at the 2017 IIHF World Championships and the team captured gold with a shootout victory over Canada. Fox tallied three assists in the gold medal-game, including one of the game-tying goal. Over the course of the tournament, the Calgary Flames prospect put up four points in seven games.

Fox spent a pair of seasons with the Long Island Gulls before joining the United States National Team Development Program for a two-year commitment. He netted 40 points (6G 34A) in his freshman season at Harvard University, earning multiple all-league honors from the Ivy League and the ECAC. Fox also earned First Team East All-American status from the NCAA. The Flames selected the highly-regarded rearguard in the third round of the 2016 NHL Entry Draft.

Fox was joined at the Pre-Tournament training camp by fellow AYHL alumnus, and current Harvard teammate, Jack Badini.
