Clowe has the physique to be a power forward, but he plays more like a playmaker who likes to use the boards and his size to protect the puck and make plays. It hasn't been working out lately though, but he's always slow to start for reasons likely stemming from a lax offseason.
He fights and hits and he does occasionally drive the net, so I guess you could describe him as a power forward in a broad sense.
In a league where a headhunting diver like Dustin Brown is considered a "power forward" i'd say the definition is pretty broad.
