Kurtis Foster breaks leg, season over

Former Thrashers prospect Kurtis Foster suffered a serious broken leg last night with the Minnesota Wild.

Foster, a rising young defenseman playing his best hockey of the season, broke his left leg in a collision with San Jose rookie Torrey Mitchell and the boards behind Minnesota's net in the second period. He was expected to undergo surgery to insert a stabilizing rod into his leg, almost certainly ending his season.

Foster was traded by the Thrashers to the Anaheim Ducks for Nic Havelid. Foster was let go by Anaheim as a free agent and then signed with the Wild.
