Darroll Bradley Powe (born June 22, 1985) is a Canadian professional ice hockey centre and left winger who is currently an Unrestricted Free Agent of the National Hockey League (NHL).

Playing career[edit]

He attended Princeton University and, while earning his degree in sociology,[1] played on its hockey team for four years; during his junior year he was the assistant captain of the team, and in his senior year he was the captain.[2]

The Philadelphia Flyers signed the undrafted Powe as a free agent on April 17, 2008,[3] after Powe had played on the Flyers American Hockey League affiliate, the Philadelphia Phantoms, in 2006–07 and 2007–08. Powe made his NHL debut on October 24, 2008, against the New Jersey Devils.[4] After being sent back down to the Phantoms, Powe returned to the Flyers lineup for good in December and played the remainder of the 2008–09 season with the Flyers.[4] On December 9, 2008, he scored his first career NHL goal against Yann Danis of the New York Islanders.[5] A restricted free agent following the 2009–10 season, Powe signed a one-year contract on July 22, 2010.[6]

Powe is generally regarded to be a role player and has excellent penalty killing skills. Another of his strengths is his forechecking prowess.

On June 27, 2011, the Flyers traded Powe to the Minnesota Wild for a third round pick in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft.[7] After the trade, on July 5, 2011, Powe signed a contract with the Wild worth $3.2 million during three years.[8]

On February 4, 2013, Powe was traded by the Wild, along with forward Nick Palmieri, to the New York Rangers in exchange for veteran forward Mike Rupp.[9]
