CareerEdit

Farrell started his career at Harvard University in 1990, where he scored 11 points in 29 games. During that summer, the Pittsburgh Penguins made him their fifth round selection (89th overall) in the 1990 NHL Entry Draft. Farrell would remain at Harvard University until his senior season in 1993-94, where he led the ECAC in goals scored (29 goals in 33 games), outscoring future NHL players Craig Conroy, Steve Martins (who was also Farrell's teammate), and Eric Perrin.

Farrell played professionally from 1994 until 1999 in the ECHL and AHL, before leaving the United States to play a single season with TEV Miesbach, a third tier team in Germany's Oberliga. Farrell would later return to Germany to finish his career with the ERSC Amberg in Germany's fourth tier Regionalliga.
