In the wake of the lockout ending and the thrill of an accelerated training campo beginning tomorrow (yes, tomorrow), the Flyers management are already at it. According to serveral sources including TSN's Bob McKenzie, that the Flyers have signed 31 year old defenseman Kurtis Foster.
Foster, a right handed shot, brings a great shot on a third pairing or a power play unit. Looking at the small pool of free agent defenseman, this was a valuable option for the Flyers. The former Minnesota Wild d-man, Foster brings depth to the Flyers defensive situation. Last season while only playing in 51 games, Foster recorded 4 goals and 10 assists. Foster is 6'5, 226lbs.
Flyers training camp is set to begin tomorrow (Sunday) at 10:00am at Voorhees Skate Zone...and yes it is open to the public.
