Adam Fox (born February 17, 1998) is an American professional ice hockey defenseman for the New York Rangers of the National Hockey League (NHL).[1]

He played two seasons in the U.S. National Team Development Program, and finished with the record for the most assists in a single season (in 2015-16) and the most assists in a career (in 2014-16).

He was named the 2016 IIHF World U18 Championships Best Defenseman. Fox was selected by the Calgary Flames, 66th overall, in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft, but opted to go to college. He played collegiate ice hockey for Harvard University, leading all NCAA defensemen in the nation in assists and points in his freshman season, and leading all defenseman in the country in points per game and assists in his junior season.

In June 2018, Calgary traded Fox's NHL rights to the Carolina Hurricanes, who traded them to the New York Rangers in April 2019. He left college a year early, and made his NHL debut for the Rangers in 2019. In his rookie season, he tied for second among all NHL rookie defensemen in goals, and was third in assists and points.
