Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Darren Lowe
Right-winger Darren Lowe played eight games with the Pittsburgh Penguins in 1983-84. Although his NHL impact was minimal he was a fine goal scorer as an amateur and in the minors.

The Toronto native spent three years at the University of Toronto. He then played a season with the Canadian national team and represented his country at the 1984 Sarajevo Olympics. After the Games, Lowe signed with the Pittsburgh Penguins as a free agent and notched three points in eight games.

When the Penguins retooled after their dreadful season in 1983-84, Lowe sought regular ice time in Europe. Over the next two years he played in Austria with WEV Wien and Jokerit Helsinki of the Finnish league. The slick forward returned to North America with the IHL's Flint Spirits in 1987-88. He scored 53 goals and helped the club reach the Turner Cup final. After sitting out the next season he notched 31 goals for Flint in 1989-90 then played a year with the San Diego Gulls of the "I" before retiring.
