Left-winger Darcy Loewen was a hard-nosed grinder in the early 1990s. He was a solid goal scorer in junior and played most of his pro hockey in the IHL.
Born in Calgary, Alberta, Loewen played junior with the WHL's Spokane Chiefs. He was claimed 55th overall by the Buffalo Sabres at the 1988 Entry Draft and represented Canada at the 1989 World Junior Championships. He spent most of his first three pro seasons with the AHL's Rochester Americans while receiving the occasional recall to Buffalo.
The young forward received a chance to play more regularly after he was taken by the Ottawa Senators in the 1992 Expansion Draft. He played 123 games over two seasons for the young club and provided much quality work along the boards and in the corners. Beginning in 1994-95, he became a solid grinder in the IHL for several years and spent the 1998-99 season with the Nottingham Panthers of the British league before retiring.
