Late last night we shared a report about the Flyers being likely to sign former Wild defenseman Kurtis Foster and this morning the team has confirmed they’ve done just that.

The team announced they signed the veteran blue liner to a one-year deal. CSNPhilly’s Tim Panaccio reports the deal is worth $950,000.

Since the Flyers aren’t going to have Chris Pronger this season (or perhaps ever again) and with Kimmo Timonen, Andrej Meszaros, and Andreas Lilja all coming back from injuries, having more veteran depth never hurts. Foster may not be fleet of foot at this point of his career, but he still has a heavy shot to use from the blue line.

    Good 6th man… I would love to see him pull a gross an and just become a star in Philly but there’s like 4% chance of that. Anyway he is a great guy and should fill a few voids but overall just a smart depth guy, nothing much.
