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.

Instead, these prospects will have the chance to dominate their respective leagues while their veteran brethren find colder pastures to ply their trade.
