The Oilers have recalled Corey Potter from Oklahoma City (AHL).
Potter who was recently sent down is already back after being recalled with fellow defenseman Martin Marincin. One of them will slide into the lineup tonight an one of them will be a healthy scratch. Potter has two goals and a minus-2 rating in six games with the Oilers.
Potter missed all of the Oilers training camp with a back injury, travelled to Oklahoma City for a two game conditioning stint with the Barons earlier this month, returned to Edmonton for a few practices then found himself on waivers. After he had cleared, he reported to the Barons again, where he found his footing through the course of five AHL games. He was recalled on Tuesday and will play tonight against the Dallas Stars, alongside Nick Schultz. He figures to be a healthy scratch once Justin Schultz (groin) returns.
