|Regular Season Statistics with the Franchise
Stats in bold signifies team leader.
There are quite a few Devils that I vaguely remember, and Foster is one of them. I do remember Gary Thorne and Peter
McNab talking about him in one of the games I did see. They compared his shot to that of Al MacInnis'.
That's half the story about his game. He was a playmaker, but only saw about 50 games in the NHL. Most of his career
was as an AHLer, and a valuable one at that.
He would stay in North America until 1997, when he signed with Kokudo of Japan and had a successful 4 seasons
there. He also saw one season in Germany before returning to North America and finishing his career here, his last team
being the Elmira Jackals of the UHL.
After he retired, he founded a pool installation business called PowerPlay Pools. He also later got into coaching, having
been behind the bench for the Kanata Stallions of the CCHL, a Junior A level league, for 2 seasons, and was/is also an
assistant for the Carleton Place Canadians in the same league.
