The Arizona Coyotes placed defenseman Corey Potter on waivers.

It's been quite the transaction-heavy few days for Potter. First, he was cut from his PTO by the Coyotes. Next, he was signed to a one-year, two-way contract. Finally, there's this waiver situation. It may all be "red tape," yet it's remarkable how fringe players such as Potter get tossed around.

Corey Potter has inked a one-year, two-way contract with the Arizona Coyotes.

Potter has eight goals and 32 points in 129 career NHL games. He's been assigned to AHL Springfield. Potter is not a bad depth defenseman for the Coyotes' organization, but we wouldn't count on him to be more than that.

Potter was a healthy scratch for 15 straight games. Neither player is a big difference-maker so JFYI.

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.

Corey Potter, Brandon Bollig and David Wolf will all be healthy scratches in Monday's game against Boston.

Potter, 31, was recalled from Adirondack on February 4th but he has yet to play a game for the Flames this season. This trio of players won't have any fantasy value going forward.
