Corey Potter (born January 5, 1984) is an American ice hockey defenseman, who currently plays for the Edmonton Oilers of the National Hockey League (NHL).

Playing careerEdit

Potter was drafted 122nd overall in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft by the New York Rangers. He played his first NHL game for the Rangers on December 7, 2008 against the Calgary Flames. He scored his first NHL point, an assist on a Dmitri Kalinin goal, on December 27, 2008 against the New Jersey Devils. He scored his first NHL goal on April 2, 2009 against the Carolina Hurricanes.

He was signed as a free agent by the Pittsburgh Penguins on July 16, 2010.[1]

On July 1, 2011, Potter signed a one year, two-way contract with the Edmonton Oilers.[2] His signing was in part due to the urging of Oilers coach Tom Renney.[3] After appearing in only one NHL game with the Penguins the previous year, he made the club out of training camp. He has played a large role, including being featured on the first unit power-play.
