Apr 30 - 1:38 PM

Corey Potter left Friday's practice with an alleged arm injury.

He needed assistance to the dressing room due to a right shoulder problem after a tussle with Daniel Paille along the boards. Potter is the Bruins' eighth defenseman but he played in Game 1 of the series against the Red Wings as a number of the Boston blueliners were either sick or injured. Potter likely would not have dressed for Game 5 Saturday night even if he were healthy so his loss has no fantasy ramifications.

Corey Potter made his NHL playoff debut on Friday night.

He logged nearly 17 minutes of ice time in the match, which included 1:37 of playing time on the penalty kill. Potter recorded four blocked shots and one shot of his own in Boston's 1-0 loss to Detroit. The 30-year-old rearguard has 123 regular season games of NHL experience under his belt and he was "thankful" that a chance to play in the playoffs finally came.

Corey Potter will probably get some playing time for the Bruins in their final four games.

He may play one or two games depending on how generously Boston chooses to rest their top players. Potter has played in just one contest with the Bruins since he was acquired off waivers from Edmonton in early March.
Apr 8 - 7:45 AM

Corey Potter made his Boston debut in Tuesday's win over New Jersey.

He was claimed off waivers from Edmonton earlier this month and got to play in his first game since Jan. 27. Potter had one shot and a plus-1 rating in 15:09 of ice time. "I was a little rusty at the start," he said. "But the systems here make it very easy for us on the back end. All and all, for not playing in a while, I think it went pretty well for me." He replaced Matt Bartkowski in the lineup.

Don't look for Corey Potter on the Boston blueline Saturday night against Tampa.

The defenseman, who was claimed from Edmonton off waivers on Wednesday, will likely be a healthy scratch for a second consecutive contest as he acclimates himself to his new team.
Mar 8 - 7:09 AM

The Boston Bruins have claimed Corey Potter off of waivers.

The Bruins needed to add some defensive depth given that they're missing Adam McQuaid (leg) and Dennis Seidenberg (knee). Potter isn't expected to have any fantasy value in Boston.
Mar 5 - 12:08 PM

Corey Potter has been placed on waivers by the Edmonton Oilers.

Potter has some offensive upside, but he hasn't been used much by Edmonton this season. We wouldn't count on him being claimed or being worth owning in standard leagues for the remainder of the 2013-14 campaign.
Mar 4 - 12:11 PM

Corey Potter was a healthy scratch on Wednesday.
