The London Free Press and Windsor Star earlier today reported the death of former Kings enforcer Barry Potomski. He was 38 when he died of a heart attack Monday while working out at a gym, according to both reports.
Potomski appeared in 59 games as a King during the 1995-96 and ’96-97 seasons. He recorded six goals, 10 points and 197 penalty minutes over those seasons, then finished his NHL career with a nine-game cameo for the Sharks in ’97-98. Potomski retired from hockey after the 2000-01 season with the Idaho Steelheads, then of the West Coast Hockey League.
