The Bruins have claimed Corey Potter off of waivers from Edmonton.
The injuries on the blueline to Dennis Seidenberg and Adam McQuaid had the Bruins rather thin on the back-end, the claim of Potter provides a little extra blueline depth. Potter is 6-foot-3, 206 lbs. and plays a big physical game in his own end, but can also provide offence from time-to-time.
Potter (groin) has resumed practicing with the Oilers.
Potter has missed the last six games with a groin injury that he suffered on December 27. With Brad Hunt being assigned to the AHL, there is a good chance that Potter will be activated from IR. He has three assists, a minus-1 rating and 21 PIMs in 12 games.
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.
