Oilers Sign Corey Potter To Two-Way Deal

Edmonton Oilers sign defenseman Corey Potter to a two way contract, finally some more help for the farm team.

In the (maybe) last signing of the day, the Edmonton Oilers have signed defenseman Corey Potter to a one year, two way deal. This is no doubt a signing for the Oklahoma City Barons, but it is interesting that Potter was a player for the Pittsburgh Penguins and more specifically their farm team in the AHL. Shortly after this signing was made public, former Oilers' prospect Colin MacDonald signed a similar deal to Potter's with the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Potter was a fourth round draft pick of the New York Rangers in 2003 and has only played a grand total of 9 NHL games during his professional hockey career, but 321 AHL games.

Potter is a graduate from Michigan State, and has won gold with team USA in 2002. There is not much out there on Potter from first look, but there were of course a couple of youtube videos that may be of interest. Here is one from Potter's days at MSU:

And here is one from the AHL:

If Potter will play a physical game and stand up for his teammates in Oklahoma City with the Barons, or in Edmonton with the Oilers, he will be a welcome addition to the Oilers family.

The Oilers have had a very busy and overall good day, and it was great to see a signing for the Barons, but I think that most would agree that it is frustrating that a goalie signing for the Barons has yet to be made. Surely this decision cannot be too far behind, but this is the news that we will be waiting on. Stay tuned folks!
