"UNH has a very good and successful hockey program. Under Coach Umile’s direction the team has many achievements to its credit. The facilities are very modern and very functional. Hockey is very big at the school and also for the state of New Hampshire. It has always been an aspiration of mine to be a part of an elite Division 1 NCAA program and as of this year when UNH approached me things just fell right into place. With a great hockey and academic program, UNH couldn’t have been a better fit for me and I am extremely excited to be a part of such a prestigious program." from "UNH Recruit Profile: Warren Foegele", The UNH Men's Hockey Blog

"Some scouts have been buzzing about his (Warren Foegele) play of late, a fast-skating, hard-working, two-way left winger. Adding to the chatter is the fact he's one of those seeming 'come out of nowhere' kids who's playing at a level of hockey in Canada that doesn't usually attract many, if any, NHL scouts. Some scouts have wondered aloud whether Foegele may be this year's version of Mark Jankowski, the Calgary Flames' surprise first-round pick, 21st overall, in 2012 from Stanstead College in Quebec, who's now developing and playing well at Providence College." Bob McKenzie, TSN.
"A hard driving, good skating, get in the 'guts of the action' player who plays unselfishly and does the spade work for his team. Is just tapping into his potential and has great room to grow further and thus increase his impact." Craig Button, TSN Director of Scouting.
"It's easy to dismiss a good hockey player playing at a lower level as excelling because of inferior competition. But it's hard not to come away impressed with Warren Foegele of St. Andrews College. Passed over twice in the Ontario Hockey League draft, Foegele turned to the unlikely route of Ontario high school hockey. This late bloomer, who went from 5-8 as a minor midget to 6-1 today, is making some noise that will likely intensify as the draft nears. His impressive offensive numbers speak for themselves. But there's more to his game than numbers. He plays a full 200-foot game, working as hard defensively as offensively. Foegele has excellent speed with his long, strong stride. He has excellent puck skills and soft hands. His lower body strength is exceptional and he gets very low when he has the puck on his stick, making him tough to check. His grit/compete level is very high, and while he doesn't run players over, he does finish checks hard." Kyle Woodlief, Red Line Report.
"He’s always been a talented player and I think that a couple of the attributes that come naturally to him, in terms of being really coachable and working hard, have served him well and he has improved a ton over the last couple of years. All of this is a credit to his determination and hard work and his coachability to continue to grow and learn to continue to be the best player he can be. He has been great to have as part of our program.” David Manning, Head Coach, St. Andrew's College.
"A smooth-skating offensive winger at the high school level. Able to use his speed and quickness to generate chances. Has soft hands and a strong shot, as well as solid vision and playmaking abilities. He’s the complete offensive threat. Thinks the game and reads the play well. Needs work on his shot release, and getting it off quicker and at different release points to continue success shooting at higher-level, more skilled puckstoppers. This kid makes you believe in him when you see him play as he works hard and is involved all over the ice. Not physical at all, turns away from the big hit and does not like the rough stuff too much.” Future Considerations Draft Guide.
"A strong bow legged skater, he boasts exceptional straight ahead speed and plays his wing with efficiency as he operates well playing a north-south game.. tenacious and aggressive in his puck pursuit, he is brash down low and hurls his body at the opposition .. offensive zone hockey sense and creativity come into question as he has a difficult time stick handling.. does a formidable job of getting pucks on goal at all times .. uses his speed to attack scoring lanes as he elects to go through players rather than around them .. shot is hard and heavy, with a better snap shot than slap shot .. defensive game is a work in progress, hustles to get back but effort level is sporadic.” McKeen's Draft Guide.
