Powe gets 3-year deal with Wild

Former Flyer Darroll Powe has signed a 3-year, $3.2 million deal with the Minnesota Wild, the Minneapolis Star-Tribune is reporting.

Powe could have filed for arbitration today, but instead signed a multiyear deal to buy out the first 2 years of unrestricted free agency.

Powe was traded last week for a 2013 third-round draft pick in a move to clear salary cap space before free agency began.

The Princeton University product led the Flyers in hits and was a strong penalty killer.
