Lightning Round: Kurtis Foster
Lightning Round: You played your junior hockey for the Peterborough Petes of the OHL. What exactly is a Pete?
Kurtis Foster: You know what, that is a question that everyone has wondered and I don’t think anybody knows.
LR: If you could be in any band, present or past, which one would it be? Which instrument would you play?
KF: I would say Pearl Jam. I would play drums.
LR: Book or movie? What is your favorite?
KF They’re about even. I read before I go to bed every night, but I definitely like movies too. My favorite book growing up was a book by Scott Young named A Boy at the Leafs’ Camp. That’s what I read when I was younger. Now I would say one of the Lance Armstrong books, probably the first one. Movies are tough. I would say the funniest movie I’ve ever seen, and still abide by it all the time, is Old School.
LR: You're a big pizza fan. What is your favorite type?
Pepperoni, bacon and chicken. Lots of meat.
LR: Who is your favorite Seinfeld character and why?
KF: My favorite character, by far, is George because it is just funny to laugh at him all the time.
LR: If you could drop everything right now and go somewhere, where would you go?
KF: I would go and play baseball for the New York Yankees.
LR: You scored two goals in your first game with the Wild. Can we expect the same with the Lightning?
KF: (Laughing) As long as Marty and Vinny make good passes, yes.
LR: What is something fans may not know about you?
KF: Any time they want to introduce themselves or chat about hockey just come up to me and let me know. I love talking hockey and being part of the community.
LR: What is the coolest, most amazing thing you’ve ever seen in hockey?
KF: When Marian Gaborik scored five goals against the New York Rangers.
LR: What is the first thing you want to do when you get to Tampa?
KF: Go to a beach.
