New York Rangers President and General Manager Glen Sather announced today that defenseman Corey Potter has been recalled from the Hartford Wolf Pack of the American Hockey League (AHL).
Potter, 24, has registered two goals and nine assists for 11 points, along with 30 penalty minutes in 24 games with Hartford this season. He currently ranks second on the team among defensemen in goals (two) and points (11), and is tied for second among Wolf Pack blueliners in assists (nine). Potter has recorded two multiple-point games this season, including a multiple-assist effort on October 22 at Worcester. The 6-3, 200-pounder skated in one game with the Rangers this season. He made his NHL debut on December 7 vs. Calgary.
The Lansing, Michigan native was originally the Rangers’ third choice, 122nd overall, in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft.
