 ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -The Minnesota Wild re-signed injured defenseman Kurtis Foster to a one-year, $1.025 million contract on Wednesday.
Wild general manager Doug Risebrough promised to retain the 26-year-old Foster to give him peace of mind about his future after he broke his leg in a March game against San Jose.
Foster needed surgery to repair a fractured femur, and a stabilizing rod was inserted in his upper leg. He has two screws in his knee and one in his hip and is unlikely to be ready to return to the ice for several months.
Before the injury, Foster had seven goals and 12 assists in 56 games. He has one of the hardest slap shots on the team and has posted 41 power-play points over three seasons with the Wild.
