I don't think they're really bringing him in for the fighting aspect. Just size, grit.

Powe was supposedly brought here as a big hitter along the lines of Clutter. I honestly can't tell you I remember him making many (i.e; any) big hits.

From the Official Wild twitter:

Fletcher: "Rupp is a big guy who has won the Stanley Cup. He brings size, experience and grit to our lineup."
