His most important point was the game-winning assist in Game 7 to advance to Round 2 of the 2022 Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Fox was selected by Calgary with the 66th overall pick in the 2016 NHL Entry Level Draft. Last year he rose to stardom, winning the Norris Trophy as the best defenseman in the NHL in 2021.
