Flyers secure F-Darroll Powe for 2010-11

According to, the Flyers have tied up the final loose end of the offseason by re-signing RFA forward Darroll Powe to a one-year, $725,000 deal on Wednesday night.

The contract is a $205,000 raise from what he made last season.

Powe, 25, heading into his third full season with the Flyers, is currently slated as the 13th forward for a Philly team that is log jammed at that position.  However, the Princeton Alum is expected to get a fair shot at making the active roster in training camp due to the potential absence of Flyers fourth-line center Blair Betts, who is recovering from shoulder surgery that is estimated to keep him sidelined until Nov.

The gritty speedster and penalty kill specialist averaged just over 12 minutes a game of ice time and ranked second on the Flyers in hits with 183 in 63 games last season.  He scored nine goals and six assists during that span.
