Adrian Foster (born January 15, 1982, in Lethbridge, Alberta) is a professional ice hockey centre who is currently an unrestricted free agent who last played for the defunct Abbotsford Heat of the AHL.

Playing career[edit]

Foster was drafted in the first round, 28th overall, by the New Jersey Devils in the 2001 NHL Entry Draft.

Foster has yet to play in the National Hockey League. He spent his professional career with the Albany River Rats, Lowell Devils, and Houston Aeros of the American Hockey League, EC Red Bull Salzburg of the Austrian Hockey League, Dinamo Riga of the Kontinental Hockey League, and the Frankfurt Lions, Straubing Tigers of the DEL.

During the beginning of the 2011–12 season, Foster returned to North America, signing a contract with the Lake Erie Monsters of the AHL on October 18, 2011.[1] Due to injury, Foster was limited to only 8 games with the Monsters, before returning to Germany at the deadline to play a stint with the Grizzly Adams Wolfsburg for the remainder of the season on February 1, 2012.[2]

Foster remained un-signed into the 2012–13 season, before agreeing to a one-year contract with the Idaho Steelheads on October 17, 2012.[3] He immediately marked his debut in the ECHL, producing 4 assists in a 7-6 shoot-out victory over the Colorado Eagles on the same night.[4]
