Playing career[edit]

Foy was drafted by the Minnesota Wild 175th overall in the 2002 NHL Entry Draft. He began his hockey career with Merrimack College in the NCAA. From there he moved on to the Ottawa 67's of the OHL. In the 2002–03 season with the 67's Foy formed one of the most dominating tandems in the history of the OHL with teammate Corey Locke. He spent the majority of the 2005–06 and 2006–07 seasons with the Houston Aeros, Minnesota's top farm team in the American Hockey League (AHL). In the 2007–08 season, he was with the Wild all season and played 28 games, scoring four goals with four assists and 28 penalty minutes.

On July 14, 2008, Foy was signed as a free agent by the St. Louis Blues to a one-year contract.[1] He was subsequently assigned to the Blues AHL affiliate, the Peoria Rivermen to begin the 2008–09 season. On March 11, 2009, after receiving a six game suspension for leaving the bench to fight the Aeros' John Scott, Foy left the Rivermen, with the team citing "personal reasons". He only played 4 games during the season after being stricken by a sports hernia in training camp.

On September 28, 2009, Foy signed a one-year contract with the Arizona Sundogs of the Central Hockey League.[2] Foy was injured on the opening night of the 2009–10 season and was later granted leave by the CHL in mid November.[3] He returning to finish in 7 games with the Sundogs for 3 assists before succumbing to season-ending injury on February 13, 2010.[4]

Foy came back after sitting out the 2010–11 season and signed with the Stockton Thunder of the ECHL, enjoying his highest offensive output since the 2006-07 season when he led Houston with 27 goals and 50 points.

On July 4, 2012 it was announced that Foy has signed a one-year contract with six time German champion Eisbären Berlin.[5]
