O-Sens Sign Potulny
Forward to spend rest of the season with Binghamton
The Ottawa Senators Hockey Club today announced that center Grant Potulny has signed a one-year deal with the club. He will spend the remainder of the 2003-04 season with Binghamton of the American Hockey League (AHL) on an amateur try-out.
Potulny, 24, recently completed his collegiate hockey career, playing four seasons with the University of Minnesota in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association (WCHA). In 146 career games with Minnesota, Potulny recorded 68 goals, 48 assists and 116 penalty minutes.
The Grand Forks, North Dakota, native and Golden Gopher captain was part of two NCAA championship teams (2002, 2003) and scored the game and title-winning goal for Minnesota to win the 2002 championship over Maine.
Drafted in the fifth round (157th overall) by Ottawa in 2000, Potulny has attended the Senators’ summer development camp for each of the past three years.
