Fozzie Lives!

Thanks to Russotan, Claire, who found this nugget: Fozzie is apparently trying out for the Red Bulls in Salzburg.

Here's a badly Bable-translated article that gives the gist.

Update: Here's an English account from the Red Bulls' site...

Salzburg's head coach Pierre Pagé is also taking advantage of the closing games of the pre-season to try out further new players. Yesterday, Sunday, saw the two tryout players Adrian Foster (CAN/forward) and Teemu Kuusisto (FIN/forward) join the team in Copenhagen and they were given the chance to prove themselves today.
Of course, there's no assessment, but it sounds like he didn't score.

On the one hand, I'm glad to know he's somewhere. On the other, I'm pretty disappointed that the Wild weren't willing to make a spot for him. He played his ass off here and while he didn't have a "first round draft pick" quality season, for spending 5 years grappling with injuries and to come back and play the whole season here, that's something special.

Then again, maybe they did offer and he wanted a better deal. Regardless, I hope he finds a soft place to land. Found this article about him on NHL.com yesterday that I hadn't seen before. I'll keep an eye on things in Austria to see if they sign him. What a grind it is for these guys. Sheesh.

The Red Bulls have an English translation available on their site.

Former Tri-City American Colton Yellow Horn is playing for them, as is goalie and hottie Jordan Parise, brother of the dreamy Zach Parise.

Yeah, they're about a week behind putting the English version of the news up. I'll update the link when it's available. Much nicer to read.

Wow, more Parise's. The world's looking like a brighter place already. Zach is just darling.

Here's a link to the Red Bulls heroes list.


Though I have no idea what it says.
It's some kind of profile on Adrian Foster.
