We’re at that point during training camp in which teams must make decisions about borderline players (and vice versa).
For fringe guys, that sometimes means signing less-than-ideal contracts after being “cut.”
That seems to be the case for Corey Potter, as he accepted a one-year, two-way deal from the Arizona Coyotes not long after being released from a PTO.
As the main image shows, Potter’s been around, bouncing between several teams after first cracking the New York Rangers’ lineup in 2008-09.
He’s headed to the AHL, but with solid-enough experience, Potter could slip into the Coyotes’ mix if injuries strike.
If nothing else, his name provides a golden opportunity for bad jokes.
