Spooner, Wisconsin – The Wisconsin Lumberjacks are pleased to announce the signing of forward Nick Foldesi.
Foldesi, 18, 5’11” 175 will make his junior hockey debut with the Lumberjacks, after completing his Minnesota State High School Hockey career. Nick attended and was a 3 year varsity letter winner at Monticello/Annandale/Maple Lake in Monticello, MN. Foldesi tallied 61 points in 74 career games with his career best season coming during his senior year, seeing him pot 15 goals and add 16 helpers for 31 points in 25 games.
Associate Head Coach Garrett Hendrickson had this to say about Foldesi, “Nick comes in and fills a big role for us. We really like his style and the many tangibles he brings to the club. Tons of potential and the ability to continue to develop. You never like to put pressure on guys to produce, you want them going out and playing relaxed and creating. Foldesi is a guy that I believe brings a strong understanding of that philosophy and can go to work in our style of play.”
Hendrickson added this when asked about the recruiting of Foldesi, “We’ve all known what Nick is capable of after he helped his team reach the 2016-2017 Minnesota State High School Hockey Tournament during his sophomore year and his great run in 2017-2018 through sections and into the Minnesota State High School Hockey Tournament for a second straight season. He proved he can play on a big stage and show up in an impactful way night in and night out. Throughout his senior season, he was a guy I had my eye on when I was coaching in the NAHL. He is a solid forward with great ice vision and an extremely high hockey IQ. I believe he will be a go to guy for us.”
When asked about his signing with the Lumberjacks, Foldesi said, “I’m excited that it is a new program! It’s a fresh start for everyone involved, it’s a story waiting to be written. I had the opportunity to get up to Spooner and check out the facility and it was awesome. All the projects going on right now in the Civic Center to prepare for our inaugural season are going to to make it a great experience not only for myself and my teammates, but the fans are going to love the upgrades. As I toured the facility it was the little things that got me excited, I can’t wait to report for training camp. The biggest thing for me and my family in making this decision was the vibe I got from the staff. During my visit to Spooner, I spent about 2+ hours talking with the staff. The coaches made me feel like they would do anything for their guys, which is a great feeling when you are weighing your options as to where to play.”
