Extreme Makeover: Flyers Edition picked up this afternoon where it left off late last week as the Flyers announced the trading of forward/center Darroll Powe to Minnesota in exchange for their third round draft pick in 2013.
Powe was a fast skater and hard hitter who contributed valuable checking line minutes and penalty killing to the Flyers last season. He was one of a few guys who didn’t look lost on the ice against the Bruins in the playoffs.
One take on the move to deal away such a solid penalty killer, from Phantoms beat writer Tim McManus, “Flyers trade a center who is great on the penalty kill. Sounds like a tailor-made opening for Ben Holmstrom.”
Powe was is an RFA, but most expected him to re-sign with the Flyers. Then again, most expected Mike Richards to be the Captain as well.
In other Flyers news today, the team announced they re-signed both Andreas Nodl and Tom Sestito. Nodl agreed to a two-year deal worth a repoted 845k per year.
UPDATE: According to CSN’s Sarah Baicker, Dan Carcillo was not tendered by the team and is free to sign elsewhere.
