Tyson Foerster tallied his first career NHL point with an assist in a dominant Philadelphia Flyers victory Friday night. At 3:53, the Flyers made it 2-0. Foerster used his speed to break towards the Sabres’ goal during a 2-on-1 and had a chance near the net. The rebound bounced back out in front and teammate Joel Farabee tucked it home to break his 26-game goalless drought. Foerster’s primary assist was his first point in the NHL. The secondary assist went to teammate Hayes.
Tortorella said Tyson Foerster “has a lot to learn,” especially away from the puck, but he is encouraged by what he has seen from the right winger in his first few NHL games. “I just love his puck poise. I don’t think there’s a lot of panic in his game. Big body. He obviously can shoot the puck,” Tortorella said.
