Prior to joining the Crimson, Fox played in the US National Team Development Program (USNTDP). During his final season in the program, he led all U-18 defenseman in goals, assists, and points.[2] He would finish his career with the third most points by a defenseman in USNTDP history.[2]

Leading up to the 2016 NHL Entry Draft, Fox was ranked 50th for North American Skaters in the final ranking by NHL Central Scouting Bureau.[3] He was eventually drafted 66th overall by the Calgary Flames.[4]

Fox had an immediate impact after joining Harvard for the 2016–17 season, being named ECAC Rookie of the Year after his freshman season. Fox would also be named to the NCAA First All-American Team and ECAC First All-Star Team in each of his first two seasons. In his freshman season, Fox helped Harvard win the Beanpot for the first time since 1993 by recording a goal and an assist to beat Boston University 6–3.[5] Fox also helped Harvard reach its first Frozen Four series since 1994 and win an Ivy title and ECAC Hockey Championship. In the Frozen Four series against Minnesota–Duluth, Crimson lost 2–1.[6]

On June 23, 2018, Fox's rights were traded along with Dougie Hamilton and Micheal Ferland by the Calgary Flames to the Carolina Hurricanes for Elias Lindholm and Noah Hanifin.[7] On April 30, 2019, Fox's rights were acquired by the New York Rangers in exchange for a second-round pick in the 2019 NHL Entry Draft and a conditional third-round pick in the 2020 NHL Entry Draft.[8] On May 2, Fox signed an entry-level contract with the Rangers.[9]
