Potulny ranked first in the nation with 38 goals and 63 points during his last season with the Gophers, 2005–06, and was named an All-WCHA First Team Honoree and was a finalist for the Hobey Baker Memorial Award.[1]

Potulny signed a 2-year entry level contract with the Flyers on March 29, 2006.[1] He played his first two professional games with the Flyers at the tail-end of the 2005–06 season, making his NHL debut on April 7, 2006[2] and also recording his first point. He split the 2006–07 season with the Flyers and the AHL's Philadelphia Phantoms.

On April 24, 2008, Potulny scored the game winning goal at 2:58 in the fifth overtime in Game 5 of the East Division Semifinals. The games total time was 142:58, an AHL record for longest game.
