Cal Foote has no wife and hasn’t married his longtime girlfriend, Julia Wrobel. The New Jersey Devils player has tried to keep his romantic life out of the public limelight.
The last post he shared on his Instagram is that with his girlfriend. Since then, the defenceman has tried to keep his social media engagement lowkey.
Foote is the son of former NHL player Adam Foote, who is currently the assistant coach of the Vancouver Canucks. During his time in the NHL, Adam made a stellar reputation as a defenceman, making it difficult for Cal to live up to it.
Since his NHL debut in the 2020 season for the Tampa Bay Lightning, Foote hasn’t been able to make an impact in the league. And now, the 25-year-old looks to be part of a police investigation that involves five players of the 2018 Canadian World Junior team charged with sexual assault.
Cal Foote Wife: Is He Married To Girlfriend Julia Wrobel?
The New Jersey Devils defenceman, Cal Foote, has no wife and isn’t married to his girlfriend Julia Wrobel. The couple has chosen to remain private about their relationship as much as possible.
The two went public with their relationship in October 2022. The hockey player shared a photo of him and Julia likely attending an afternoon lunch event on his Instagram.
The couple looked color coordinated, with Wrobel wearing a short blue floral dress and Foote wearing a blue suit and a white shirt. The hockey player opted out of wearing a tie, making his look informal.
Cal captioned the post with only a red heart emoji, and Julia replied to Cal’s post with a smiling heart emoji. The second picture Cal posted of him and Julia was on August 31, 2023.
The two again color-coordinated their outfit as they attended an event at Whistle Bear Golf Club. This is the last post on Cal’s Instagram handle, and he also has limited the comments on the post.
More would’ve been known about Julia if her Instagram handle was public. Her last name, Wrobel, has Polish roots, so it wouldn’t be shocking if Julia’s family settled later in the US.
Cal Foote Carrer At Risk?
The 25-year-old hockey player Cal Foote made his NHL debut in the 2020 season against the Chicago Blackhawks. Tampa Bay Lightning drafted the defenceman in the 2017 NHL draft as the 14th overall pick.
Before playing in the NHL, Foote made his AHL debut for the Syracuse Crunch. Foot was previously drafted in the Western Hockey League by the Kelowna Rockets.
From the 2015-2017 season, Foote played 202 games for the Rockets, earning 163 points. For Syracuse, Cal played 155 games and earned 64 points. In his debut season, Cal played 35 games for the Lightning but didn’t have any substantial impact.
The Lightning traded Foote to the Nashville Predators midway through the 2022 season in exchange for Tanner Jeannot. In his brief stint at Nashville, Foote started 24 games, and in 2023 he signed for the New Jersey Devils.
But a career that is yet to take off, Foote seems to have already damaged his reputation. Foote and his teammate, Michael McLeod have been granted indefinite leave of absence from the team.
The New Jersey Devils announced it on Wednesday. The action was taken after The Globe and Mail reported that five members of the 2018 junior hockey team are slated to face sexual assault charges in London, Ontario, Canada.
What Is The Case Against Cal Foote?
The original case began in 2018 when a heinous case about a gang sexual assault was reported. The report first came out in 2020, with a woman claiming she was intoxicated, and when she returned to her hotel room, she was sexually assaulted by five men.
Hockey Canada settled the lawsuit to stop their beloved sports’ name from being tarnished. But in July 2022, the case was reopened after severe public pressure.
And finally, on Wednesday, The Globe and Mail reported that the police told five players on the 2018 team to surrender to them. Three hours after the news was reported, Michael McLeod and Cal, who were on the 2018 team, were said to be taking indefinite leave.
The other three players out of action are Carter Hart of the Flyers, Dillon Dube of the Flames, and Alex Formenton, who has taken leave from his European Team HC Ambrí-Piotta to return to Canada.
