The dealing didn't end on NHL Draft weekend for the Minnesota Wild.

The team announced on Monday it has acquired center Darroll Powe from the Philadelphia Flyers for a third-round pick in the 2013 draft.

Powe, who turned 26 last week, had career highs with seven goals and 10 assists in 81 games last season. He also led the Flyers and ranked 21st in the NHL with 196 hits.

A onetime undrafted free agent out of Princeton, Powe signed with the Flyers in April 2008 and made his NHL debut that fall. He has appeared in 204 games over three seasons, registering 43 points (22 goals, 21 assists).

The Wild also announced they have tendered a qualifying offer to Powe and six other players: Justin Falk, Colton Gillies, Jarod Palmer, Jeff Penner, James Sheppard and Casey Wellman.

Patrick O'Sullivan did not receive a tender offer, meaning he can sign with any team when free agency opens on Friday.
