ST. JOHN’S, NL – The Newfoundland Growlers are proud to announce that former Kelly Cup champion and St. John’s native Marcus Power has joined the Growlers front office as the newest member of Deacon Sports and Entertainment’s accounting and finance team.
Power, 29, was a mainstay in the Growlers lineup since the club’s inaugural season in 2018-19. He was the first player ever signed by his hometown club and was an integral part of the club’s Kelly Cup championship in 2019.
He played parts of three seasons with the Growlers from 2018-19 to 2021-22 and to date remains second in team history in goals (58), assists (80) and points (138) in 141 games played.
While complications from injuries prevented him from continuing his professional career on the ice, the 2018 graduate of the University of Prince Edward Island is excited to put his Finance degree to good use.
“I’m thrilled to be staying with the Growlers and the Deacon team in this new role,” Power said.
“While it’s unfortunate that my playing career was cut a little short, getting the opportunity to stay at home and continue to work with such an incredible organization was something I couldn’t say no to.”
The Growlers return to action on Wednesday, November 23 as they visit the Cool Insuring Arena in Glens Falls, NY to face the Adirondack Thunder for the first time this season.
