These are the headlines we like to see. Former Peterborough Pete and Carp, Ontario native, Kurtis Foster, made the headlines after being called up by the Minnesota Wild.
Here's the ESPN headline after Saturday's game:
FOSTER SCORES TWO IN NHL DEBUT AS WILD SNAPS LOSING STREAK
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- "Kurtis Foster scored his first two NHL goals and the Minnesota Wild ended a three-game losing streak with a 4-2 victory over the Nashville Predators on Saturday night.
Foster, who led AHL defenseman in scoring with 15 points in 19 games, was recalled from Houston on Thursday.
His first goal came 1:55 into the game when a shot from the point deflected off a Nashville player and trickled between Tomas Vokoun's pads.
Foster's second goal -- on a slap shot 13:04 into the second period -- gave the Wild a 3-1 lead. He's the first Wild player to score two goals in his first game with the franchise."
In this photo Foster is winding up in the Fastest Shot competition (which he won) in the 2003 AHL All Star Game festivities. He played for the Chicago Wolves at the time.
