Bruins Claim Defenseman Corey Potter Off Waivers From Oilers

The Boston Bruins’ first move before the NHL trade deadline was to add some defensive depth, claiming 30-year-old blueliner Corey Potter off waivers from the Edmonton Oilers.

Potter, a right-shot defenseman, has played in just 16 games for Edmonton this season, tallying zero goals and five assists. He has played in 120 games for the Oilers, Pittsburgh Penguins and New York Rangers since making his NHL debut in 2008.

Potter’s most productive season came in 2011-12, when he totaled four goals and 17 assists in 62 games.
