Kurtis Foster's promising Minnesota Wild career was violently interrupted by the most gruesome on-ice injury in the team's brief history in 2008. He missed a year with the injury, then signed a one-year deal with the Tampa Bay Lightning. He had a career year with the Lightning, tallying eight goals and 34 assists. The Edmonton Oilers signed him to a two-year deal prior to the 2010-11 season, but struggled in his first year there. He was traded to the Anaheim Ducks in the offseason and has started this year with the Ducks's AHL affiliate in Syracuse.
