History

2009-10: In his WHL rookie season, Adam Lowry, the son of former NHL forward Dave Lowry, played in 61 games for the Swift Current Broncos. He scored 15 goals and added 19 assists for 34 points to go along with 57 penalty minutes. In 3 playoff games, Lowry picked up 1 assist. Lowry was named the WHL Scholastic Player of the Year. Lowry played for Team Pacific at the 2010 World U-17 Hockey Challenge, scoring 1 goal and adding 2 assists for 3 points in 5 games.

2010-11: In 66 games for the Broncos, Lowry scored 18 goals and added 27 assists for 45 points to go along with 84 penalty minutes.

2011-12: Lowry was off to a fast start in his third season with the WHL’s Swift Current Broncos before suffering a season-ending injury in December. He scored 12 goals with 25 assists in 36 games and was plus-four with 90 penalty minutes. Eight of his 12 goals were scored on the Broncos power play. Swift Current missed the WHL playoffs; finishing fifth in the East Division.

2012-13: Lowry signed a three-year entry-level contract with Winnipeg in April 2013 and made his pro hockey debut with Jets’ AHL affiliate St. John’s following his fourth WHL season. He had 1 assist and was -1 with 4 penalty minutes in nine games with the IceCaps. St. John’s missed the playoffs after finishing last in the Atlantic Division. Lowry scored 45 goals with 43 assists, both team-highs, in 72 games with Swift Current and was +18 with 102 penalty minutes. The Broncos finished third in the East Division and faced Calgary in a first round playoff series. Lowry scored 3 goals with 2 assists and was -1 with 4 penalty minutes in the five-game series against the Hitmen.

2013-14: Lowry skated for Winnipeg AHL affiliate St. John’s in his first pro season. Playing in 64 of 76 regular season games he scored 17 goals with 16 assists and was minus-1 with 49 penalty minutes. The IceCaps finished second in the Atlantic Division but reached the Eastern Conference finals, defeating Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, before falling to the Texas Stars in the Calder Cup Finals. Lowry skated in 17 playoff games and scored 2 goals with 3 assists; finishing +1 with 16 penalty minutes. 

Talent Analysis

Lowry, the son of long-time NHLer and current junior hockey coach Dave Lowry, is not surprisingly a heady player who focuses on all details of the game. Lowry scored 45 goals in his final year of junior hockey but the real strength of his game — and likely his calling card at the NHL level — is his two-way play, attention to details, and willingness to play a physical game; using his size to his advantage.

Future

Lowry made the Jets out of training camp in his second pro season in 2014-15. Skating primarily in a fourth line role, he has shown limited offense but works to not be a liability and contain the opposition when on the ice. Playing at the NHL level as a 21-year-old is an impressive feat for Lowry, who should add some scoring to his game as he becomes more acclimated to the NHL.

Winnipeg Jets General Manager Kevin Cheveldayoff has made it abundantly clear through his actions to date that the Jets are an organization steadfast in improving and building primarily through the draft. December and January provided several opportunities for the Winnipeg Jets to show off to the hockey world the collection of young talent they have accumulated since the team’s move from Atlanta prior to the 2011 season.

Led by a veteran lineup and some outstanding goaltending from current Jets rookie Michael Hutchinson the St. John’s IceCaps won the Eastern Conference playoff title before falling to the Texas Stars in the 2013-14 Calder Cup finals. With Hutchinson and several key players from that team playing elsewhere this season, the IceCaps struggled to start the year but are playing better of late.

After re-locating from Atlanta to Winnipeg prior to the 2010-11 and hiring a general manager with roots in western Canada, it is not surprising that the Winnipeg Jets have focused much more of their energy on procuring talent from both the WHL and those players in western Canada and Minnesota bound for college hockey careers.

The Winnipeg Jets had an exciting third season, playing in the Western Conference for the first time since re-locating from Atlanta. The Jets, however, once again finished just short of a playoff spot. Paul Maurice, who took over as the Jets’ coach in January, seemed to have the team playing better at the end of the year and with a full offseason and training camp should be able to put his mark on the club.
