The Philadelphia Flyers returned a familiar face into the fold on Wednesday, signing Darrol Powe to an AHL deal with its affiliate in Lehigh Valley.

Powe, 29, broke in with the Flyers organization following a four-year career at Princeton, making his Philly debut in 2008. His finest campaign came in 2010-11 — he scored seven goals and 17 points in 81 games, and dressed for 11 playoff contests — but was traded to the Wild following the season.

Powe then spent a season-and-a-half in Minnesota before he was dealt to the Rangers during the lockout-shortened ’13 campaign. He appeared in 35 games for the Blueshirts, including one last season.

    I always liked D. Powe. Played hard but wasn’t a goon. Will be healthy competition for any winger on the 4th line.

      He also filled in on the PK and was damn good at it. He will be a cheap call up if need be. He also flipped me a game puck when the flyers visited Nashville so he quickly became a personal favorite of mine. Welcome back D powe!!

        Yeah, I like his game. Hopefully he’ll get a chance to get some ice time this season.

      He’s definitely got respectable speed… something the Flyers lineup always needs. Still I’m looking more towards Bellemare to see what he can give.

    One of the most under-rated guys in the game.

    Good position player…..if he regains whatever defensive presence(forechecks hard and can play the pk) he may make the squad
