Meet Kurtis Foster, a defenseman for the Minnesota Wild.

Kurtis Foster was born on November 24, 1981 in Ontario. He started on skates at the age of 4 and hasn’t looked back. After high school play and amateur leagues, Foster was Calgary’s 40th overall pick (2nd round) for the 2000 NHL Draft.

After just a year, Foster was traded to the Atlanta Thrashers where he played for 2 seasons, though went without a single goal or assist. In 2004, Kurtis Foster was traded to the Anaheim Mighty Ducks but only played in the AHL ranks.

Shortly before the start of the 2005 season, Kurtis Foster signed with the Minnesota Wild as a free agent. The Wild started him in the AHL, but Foster started performing so well that he was soon called back to Minnesota and played his first Wild game in November 2005.

In 2009, Foster signed with the Tampa Bay Lightning. From Tampa Bay, Foster moved from the Oilers to the Ducks and then the Devils. In 2011, Foster returned to the Minnesota Wild.
