The Owen Power Era Is Evident in Buffalo. 

Date:

Owen Power’s poise and confidence have helped him flourish at all levels. Now that he’s in the NHL, he’s ready to transition into a full-on star. 

Not all 19-year-olds possess the poise and maturity that Owen Power has. Owen Power is not your average teen. Very daunting to know he is 6-foot-6 and 214 pounds.

Hundreds of friends and family were in attendance, sitting around section 110; Owen showcased why he has been regarded as the best for many years now.

And when you come away with two points while shutting down one of the most dangerous lines in the NHL, you can call that a success. He took his solo lap to one of the loudest roars you’ll come here from an opposing team’s crowd, rookie or not.

Power grew up less than 20 minutes away in Mississauga and played his minor hockey with the Mississauga Reps, making his presence known early. So when Power’s NCAA season came to a premature end last week, there was no better place for him to make his NHL debut. 

The arena he grew up visiting against the team he grew up watching. ” I had no doubt he has rehearsed, in his mind, being in (Scotiabank Arena) many times. And he looked like it,” Granato said. ”

He looked natural from the drop of the puck. He’s a very balanced person.” Power played on Buffalo’s second pairing alongside Henri Jokiharju and had a respectable debut in Buffalo’s 5-2 win.

The 6-foot-6 defender made a couple of good plays, including breaking up a pass between Auston Matthews and Mark Giordano early. ” He has such a calm to him, such a presence to him,” coach Don Granato said. ” He can slow the surrounding game. I’ve watched that presence in him for such a long time. So I knew he would get a feel for pace right away.”
