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.

Talent Analysis

Big-bodied rearguard is an excellent skater. Does not shy away from physical play. Rushes the puck with confidence. Plenty of exposure through international experience with Hockey Canada programs. Shows good leadership abilities as well given his alternate captaincy with Team Canada in 2012-13

 

Future

Bowey has been a force for the Kelowna Rockets and he will return to the team for 2013-14 in what should be his final year. Moving forward Bowey has the makings of a good solid top-four defenseman.

The junior prospects of the Washington Capitals have been all over the radar to start the 2014-15 season. With just seven names on the list for 2013-14, the ranks have thinned out quite a bit as former junior players Brian Pinho and Zach Sanford have headed to the NCAA to develop their games at the collegiate level. That leaves just five prospects at the junior/CHL level, with varying degrees of experience and success.
