Corey Potter is expected to be a healthy scratch once again Monday night versus Colorado.

Potter has been purely a backup in case of an emergency this season having played in just two games all year. The 31-year-old journeyman has never carried any fantasy value in his career and may not see another game at the NHL level for the remainder of the season. He has eight goals and 32 points with a minus 11 rating in 125 career games.

Corey Potter and Emile Poirier will be scratched against the Philadelphia Flyers on Thursday night.

Unfortunately, neither Potter nor Poirier play enough nor produce enough when they are on the ice to warrant any fantasy attention.

Corey Potter and Emile Poirier will be scratched against the Detroit Red Wings on Friday night.

Over his first five NHL games, Poirier has produced a point, a block and six hits. Which is more than what can be said for Potter during his two games of action this season. Neither has much of any fantasy value.
