He had 1 assist and was plus-two with 4 penalty minutes for the Rockets and scored 16 goals with 22 goals, recording 35 penalty minutes, in MMHL play for Winnipeg. The Wild finished second behind the cross-town rival Thrashers and lost in the playoff semifinals. In six playoff games Bowey scored 2 goals with 10 penalty minutes. He played for Team Manitoba in the 2011 Canada Winter Games and scored 2 goals with 4 assists and had 8 penalty minutes.

In five games for Canada Western at the WHC he scored 1 goal and had 6 penalty minutes.

2012-13: Bowey was part of a strong defense corps that led Kelowna to a first-place finish in the WHL’s B.C. Division and won a pair of gold medals skating for Canada’s U18 team in the 2012 Ivan Hlinka Memorial Tournament in August and in the 2013 World Junior Championship. He was plus-41, scoring 12 goals with 18 assists, and had 75 penalty minutes in 69 regular season games for the Rockets.

2013-14: Bowey was the eighth leading scorer amongst WHL defensemen with 60 points, one point behind Kelowna teammate Damon Severson (New Jersey), in his third season with the Rockets. A team captain, he scored 21 goals with 39 assists and was +44 with 93 penalty minutes in 72 games. The Rockets finished first in the B.C.

Bowey signed a three-year entry-level contract with Washington in April 2014. 

Talent Analysis

Bowey is a big-bodied rearguard who is an excellent skater. He does not shy away from physical play and rushes the puck with confidence. Bowey has played in many high pressure situations while skating for Canada in the U18 and U20 World Championships.

Future

Bowey made a push for a spot with the Capitals in training camp before being returned to Kelowna for the 2014-15 season. Now in his fourth WHL season, he is once again one of the league's top defenseman and played an integral role for Canada during it's gold medal-winning run at the 2015 World Junior Championship. Long-term Bowey has the makings of a solid two-way defenseman at the NHL level and is expected to bring a much-anticipated physical presence to the blue line in Washington.
