Jean Rene Potvin (born March 25, 1949) is a retired Canadian professional ice hockey defenceman who played in the National Hockey League (NHL) for the Los Angeles Kings, Philadelphia Flyers, New York Islanders, Cleveland Barons and Minnesota North Stars.

Playing career

Potvin played defenceman for the Los Angeles Kings, Philadelphia Flyers, New York Islanders, Cleveland Barons and Minnesota North Stars from 1971 to 1981. He finished his NHL career with 63 goals and 224 assists in 613 career games.

He also played for the Springfield Kings of the AHL and Oklahoma City Stars of the CHL.

His brother, Hockey Hall of Famer Denis Potvin, was a teammate of Jean's with the Islanders for a number of years. A cousin Marc Potvin also played in the NHL.

Potvin worked on Islander radio broadcasts both late in his playing career and following his retirement, when he was paired mainly with Barry Landers. Potvin won the Stanley Cup in 1980 with New York Islanders. In 1981 he played only 18 games for the Islanders. His name was still engraved on the Cup in 1981, even though he did not qualify.

He briefly returned to broadcasting during the 2006–07 NHL season, when he was added to Islander home telecasts on FSN New York as an intermission analyst.

Potvin currently works in Manhattan at Oppenheimer.
