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.
