The San Francisco Bulls announced today that forward Adrian Foster was loaned to the Abbotsford Heat of the American Hockey League. Foster has 17 points this season (5 goals, 12 assists) in only 15 games and has the highest points-par-game average on the Bulls.
Foster was picked up by the Bulls the day after Thanksgiving when Bulls Head Coach decided the team needed to make moves in the right direction. Along with Foster the Bulls picked up Tyler Gron – who is a star in his own right as he has 26 points (15 goals, 11 assists) in 28 games played. Foster has played pro hockey since 1997 and has been in the AMHL, AJHL, WHL, KHL, DEL, Austria, Allsvenskan, the AHL and of course the ECHL. He last played in the AHL from 2002 to 2008 with the Albany River Rats, Lowell Devils and the Houston Aeros. He’s totaled 88 points in 200 AHL games.
