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.
Life's about opportunity and how you respond to that opportunity, and obviously he must have some swagger about him, some confidence about him, because he was solid. He made some good saves. He was 6-foot-3 on every shot, which is a good thing for a goalie. He played well. We got a win.
