Ducks' Foster could miss start of season @NHLdotcom
The Anaheim Ducks announced Monday that defenseman Kurtis Foster would undergo a procedure to remove wire from his left thigh -- a remnant from surgery he had on a fractured leg in 2008.

As a result of the surgery, Foster is expected to miss 2-4 weeks, which could keep him out of the lineup when the Ducks open the 2011-12 season against the Sabres on Oct. 7 in Helsinki, Finland.

Foster, who was signed on the opening day of free agency in July, had 22 points and 45 penalty minutes for the Oilers last season. In addition to being a solid presence on the blue line, Foster chipped in offensively with 5 power-play goals and 182 shots. Foster's 8 goals were the most among Edmonton's defensive corps.
