ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -The Minnesota Wild re-signed hard-shooting defenseman Kurtis Foster to a one-year contract on Tuesday, avoiding a salary arbitration hearing.
The 25-year-old Foster had three goals and 20 assists in 57 games for the Wild last season, tying a franchise record with 13 power-play assists.
The 6-foot-5 native of Ontario also tied a team record for defensemen with seven shots in a game at Ottawa last Nov. 20. He missed 18 games due to injuries.
Foster's arbitration case was scheduled for Friday. The Wild have two other restricted free agents who could go to arbitration: forward Derek Boogaard (Monday) and defenseman Nick Schultz (July 26).
