The Fox Hole: 4 Points In 5 Games As Fox & Harvard Wind Down The Regular Season

Fox and Harvard aren’t the pair they were last season, but he’s still proving he’s a top prospect for the Flames.

Adam Fox

School: Harvard University (Soph)

Position: Defence

Born: 2/17/98, Jericho, NY

Drafted: 2016 #66 (Round 3) Calgary Flames

Adam Fox and Harvard University are close to the end of their season and the team’s record sits at 10-8-4. The Crimson are not the top team that they were last season and Fox’s numbers mirror the success or lack thereof that the team has had so far.

Since the last time we checked in with Fox and Harvard the team has gone 2-2-1 in 5 games and Fox has added 4 assists to his stat totals for 2017-18. When it comes to shot totals Fox is about at half of what he had last year (73) at 36 and the Crimson only have 7 regular season games left. His +/- is a healthy +4, but compare that to last season’s +19 and there’s a marked drop off, which can be attributed to many things. Fox’s freshman year may have been an anomaly as he collected 40 points in 35 games. His totals are partially down this season due to the fact he left Harvard to play in the WJC where he was very successful. So knock a few games off the schedule and the numbers should drop.

Harvard also isn’t the team it was last season. The Crimson finished the season at 26–5–2 and made it all the way to the semifinals of the Frozen Four before bowing out to Minnesota-Duluth. Harvard currently outside of the Top 20 and the season closes with the Beanpot Tournament and games against two of their rivals in Brown University and Yale University.

Fox is still considered a top prospect and he’s shown no reason for the Flames to think otherwise. Yes, his offence is down, but he’s a defenceman and he’s playing well on the blue line which is his job. Is he a 40 point guy or the 12 point guy from this season? It’s tough to tell seeing he’s played on two very different Harvard teams. His international numbers are good and his junior year should be the real test to see who Fox really is as a player. But for now, the Flames should be thrilled they have a solid prospect awaiting them at Harvard University.
