Potter, 26, logged 12:17 of icetime in last night’s 4-1 win at Ottawa, while making his third appearance with the Rangers this season. He returns to Hartford where he has registered a plus or even rating in each of his last four AHL contests, and added an assist in a 2-1 loss vs. Springfield on Friday.
Potter has appeared in 51 games with Hartford this season, recording two goals and 11 assists for 13 points, along with a plus-five rating and 46 penalty minutes. His plus-five rating ranked fourth on the team overall, and he ranked fourth among team defensemen in points, assists and shots (80) at the time of his recall on Monday.
He tied his AHL career-high with three assists, and registered a plus-three rating in a 5-1 win at Norfolk on February 6. He has recorded three multi-point efforts, including back-to-back two-point performances in a 5-2 win vs. Lowell on October 24 (one goal and one assist) and a 4-3 win vs. Worcester on October 25 (two assists).
Potter’s goal vs. Lowell on October 24 was also his first career shorthanded tally.
The Lansing, Michigan native was originally the Rangers fourth round selection, 122nd overall, in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft.
