The Blue Jackets have re-assigned Foudy to London (OHL).
Foudy will make his NHL debut on Monday.
With Cam Atkinson out, Foudy will make his debut on the wing on Monday. Head coach John Tortorella said they skipped the AHL and recalled Foudy from the OHL because "they needed offensive skill and speed that Foudy possesses." The 20-year-old forward has scored 20 goals with 23 assists (43 points) in 32 games with London this season.
The Blue Jackets have recalled Liam Foudy from London (OHL).
With Alexander Wennberg out long-term, the Blue Jackets have been thinned out up the middle. Riley Nash was forced to move up to the third line but their fourth lineup has struggled as a result. The Blue Jackets decided to look past their AHL team and called-up one of their top prospects from the London Knights. Foudy was a first-round pick (No.18 overall) in 2018 and has scored 20 goals with 23 assists (43 points) in 32 OHL games this season. He is expected to make his NHL debut on the Blue Jackets’ third line on Monday. His stay will likely be a short one, at which point he’ll return to the OHL.
