Breaking News: Kurtis Foster Will Travel with Wild to Chicago

Nick MaxsonCorrespondent IJanuary 19, 2009

According to Wild.com, Minnesota defenseman Kurtis Foster will travel with the team to Chicago for Monday night's game.

Foster will not play on Monday, but his travel with the team is a sign he is nearing a much anticipated return to the line-up after suffering a broken leg late last season.

Foster has been out since suffering his injury on Mar. 19 last year against the San Jose Sharks.

Eric Reitz normally on defense skated with Koivu and Miettinen on a line in practice on Sunday.

The Wild face off against Chicago tonight at the United Center. Minnesota is 1-1 against the Blackhawks this season and will make their first appearance in Chicago this season tonight.
