Pothier not returning to hockey anytime soon

From Tarik El-Bashir of the Washington Post:

Earlier this afternoon, I interviewed GM George McPhee for a feature story I’m working on. During the course of our conversation, though, a few other items of interest came up. Here’s a summary:

*We kind of already knew this, but McPhee confirmed that Brian Pothier (concussion) won’t resume his career anytime soon. The defenseman has, however, shown signs of improvement recently, McPhee said.

*As far as Chris Clark and his groin tendon injury, McPhee said he’s working under the assumption that Clark will be ready to go when training camp opens four weeks from now. That’s consistent with what the captain told me earlier this month, so no surprise there.

Too bad about Pothier.  You never like to see a player at his age not able to continue his career due to injuries.
