OILERS ASSIGN POTTER TO OKLAHOMA CITY

By Carter Baum,

 The Edmonton Oilers have assigned defenseman Corey Potter to the Oklahoma City Barons on a conditioning assignment, General Manager Craig MacTavish announced today.

Potter has registered 25 points (7-18-25) in 95 games with the Oilers over the past two seasons, but has not played this season due to injury. The Lansing, Mich. native was originally drafted by the New York Rangers in the 4th round (122 overall) of the 2003 NHL Entry Draft. 

Oklahoma City returns home to take on the Chicago Wolves in a pair of games next weekend at the Cox Convention Center. Faceoff for both games is 7 p.m.

Friday night is Barons night with concession specials featuring $2 draft beer and $1 hot dogs from 6 – 8 p.m. Saturday is the continuation of the largest promotion in Oklahoma sports history when one lucky Barons fan drives away in a brand new vehicle in the Drive Away Every Saturday promotion.

Saturday, is also Crosstown Rivals night. The first 2,000 fans through the doors receive a Barons hat in either OU-colored crimson or OSU-colored orange. There are 1,000 hats of each color.


Tickets for both games are still available, call 232-GOAL or visit okcbarons.com.
