The Minnesota Wild acquired forward Darroll Powe from the Philadelphia Flyers on Monday in exchange for a third-round pick in the 2013 Entry Draft.

Powe, who turned 26 on June 22, is an undrafted free agent who established a role with the Flyers over the past three seasons as an energy-line player with the capability of chipping in the odd goal.

Powe scored a career-high 9 goals during the 2009-10 season and followed up last season with 7 goals and a career-best 17 points while playing in 81 regular-season games. He added an assist while playing in all 11 playoff games for the Flyers.

For his career, Powe has 22 goals and 43 points in 204 regular-season games, and 1 goal and 5 assists in 40 playoff games.
Quote of the Day

He's only 17 but he can see the ice so well and he moves the puck and goes to the open ice all the time, so I just think he's a player that is ready to play in the NHL. I'm really looking forward to coaching someone like this.

— U.S. National Junior Team coach Ron Wilson on Auston Matthews, the projected No. 1 pick of the 2016 NHL Draft
