New York Rangers President and General Manager Glen Sather announced today that defenseman Corey Potter has been assigned to the Hartford Wolf Pack of the American Hockey League (AHL).
Potter, 24, skated in one game with the Rangers following his recall on December 6. He made his NHL debut on December 7 vs. Calgary. The 6-3, 200-pounder has registered two goals and nine assists for 11 points, along with 26 penalty minutes in 23 games with Hartford this season.
He returns to the Wolf Pack ranking second on the team among defensemen in assists (nine) and points (11), and tied for first in goals (two). The Lansing, Michigan native has recorded two multiple-point games this season, including a multiple-assist effort on October 22 at Worcester.
