Potter's a right handed shot, but can play either side, which gives the Rangers some flexibility. Sanguinetti's hurt.

Sauer's also hurt.

Your NHL-contracted defenseman who are healthy in Hartford:

Potter
Heikkinen
Williams

Everyone else is hurt. And Potter's only just returned 2 games ago... before that the Pack were short 5 defensemen.

Bingo.

There's a huge snowstorm on its way. Chances are a defenseman is either banged up or has a touch of the flu, and they called Potter up now as a precaution, since they'll be no way of getting anyone here for at least 2 days.
