In 2008, he was hired as a referee in the American Hockey League (AHL) and spent several years officiating in that league before being promoted to the NHL in 2017.

Foster gained national attention on March 29, 2018, when he was called upon to serve as an emergency goaltender for the Chicago Blackhawks during a game against the Winnipeg Jets.

Due to injuries to the Blackhawks’ regular goaltenders, Foster was called upon to suit up and play in the third period of the game.

He went on to stop all seven shots he faced and was named the game’s first star.

Foster’s performance as an emergency goaltender earned him widespread praise and attention, and he has since become a popular figure among hockey fans.

He continues to work as a referee in the NHL and has also been called upon to serve as an emergency goaltender on several occasions since his memorable debut.
