BLOG: Potter to have hearing
Oilers defenceman Corey Potter will have a phone hearing this afternoon after receiving a five minute major and a game for checking from behind on Anaheim's Nick Bonino.
"Well it looks bad, that's for sure," said Head Coach Dallas Eakins. "Corey is not a dirty player. I don't think he's been suspended before. I think the guy that received (the hit), maybe wasn't aware that he was right on his tail like that. I'm not sure how you wouldn't be aware of that. Who knows? The one thing I do know is the league puts great thought into it. They don't just look at it and go, give him five games or no games or just fine him. They'll make the right decision, whatever it is."
