Arizona Coyotes send Corey Potter to the Nashville Predators

One more surprise hours after the Trade Deadline passed.

It appears the Arizona Coyotes were not totally done with making trades at the Trade Deadline, though their latest move is hardly going to raise eyebrows.

The Coyotes announced that they have traded AHL defenseman Corey Potter to the Nashville Predators in exchange for "future considerations". Potter will report to Nashville's AHL affiliate, the Milwaukee Admirals.

Potter, the 122nd overall pick in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft, has played 52 games for the Springfield Falcons this year. In that span, he has five goals and 12 assists. Potter has been a lifelong AHL/NHL journeyman, as he's appeared in just 129 NHL games over 10 professional seasons.

The "future considerations" Arizona is receiving in this deal are not specified by the team's press release, but they can include anything from an agreement to swap draft picks in the future to a player to be named later. The league's CBA does not require much specificity.

So Arizona relieves itself of another contract by sending a guy who never dressed for them this year to another AHL team. Kind of a fitting end to a largely uneventful Trade Deadline day in general.
