“It’s a big responsibility,” Potter said.

“You’re looking after a special hockey collection, but you’re also trying to run a museum.”

Current vice-president Larry Paquette will take over as president within a year from now.

“Larry and I both share the same philosophy and vision for the Hall of Fame,” said Potter.

“I’m going to stay around for at least a year or so to work on special projects and still have some involvement, but stay away from the day-to-day operations.”
