One of the first real dominoes that could haven fallen either way has fallen and drifted away. Corey Potter has agreed to sign with Kölner Haie of the Deutsche Eishockey Liga (DEL) on a one-year contract.
Potter was acquired by the Nashville Predators at the NHL’s Trade Deadline Day from the Arizona Coyotes organization where he had been playing for their AHL affiliate the Springfield Falcons. He quickly made an impact as a member of the Milwaukee Admirals as the team went on a run of 15-4-0-2 after he made his debut on 3/3/16 on the road against the Lake Erie Monsters. He scored 3 points (0 goals, 3 assists) in 18 games with the Admirals and also earned a late call-up to the Predators to participate in their regular season finale.
In the rumor mill department of Elite Prospects, Potter could quickly be joined at his new club in Germany by yet another member of this year’s Admirals team in the form of Max Reinhart. That’s just a rumor but that rumor also had the initial rumblings of Potter signing correct. I’d keep an eye out on that.
