Kurtis Foster (Minnesota) breaks his leg after crashing violently into the boards late in the second period of a game against the San Jose Sharks on Wednesday March 19th 2008.
UPDATE - the NHL is now making money off of this video. Unfortunately they continue to endanger their own players. Shame.
Foster was in a race for the puck with Sharks rookie Torrey Mitchell (San Jose) in behind the Minnesota goal line. Mitchell was attempting to beat an icing call. Mitchell was assessed a 2 minute tripping penalty on the play.
The Sharks went on to win by a score of 4-3(SO)
