Flyers Sign D Kurtis Foster

The Flyers have signed free agent defenseman Kurtis Foster.

Yesterday, it was reported they were nearing a deal with the 31-year-old blue liner, who is coming fresh off a broken collar bone. Today, it was made official with him signing a one-year, $950,000 deal.

Foster is 6'5", 226 pounds, and is a right-handed shot from the point. He will give the Flyers depth at the blue-line and is projected to be on the third pairing with Andrej Meszaros not looking ready to return next Saturday.

Foster played with Minnesota, Aneheim and New Jersey last year.

More will be posted later today.
