Bowey Recalled by Capitals

10/14/2017 - The Washington Capitals announced today that they have recalled defenseman Madison Bowey from the Hershey Bears. The announcement was made by Washington's senior vice president and general manager Brian MacLellan.

Bowey, 22, appeared in Hershey's lone game of the season last Saturday in Lehigh Valley, registering two penalty minutes. He has spent the past two seasons with the Chocolate and White, skating in 105 career games, scoring 43 points (seven goals, 36 assists) and posting a plus-26 rating.

The blue liner had 14 points in an injury shortened season in 2016-17 as a slight laceration of the tendon on his ankle on Dec. 28 caused him to miss 32 games. He returned in time for the playoffs, notching four points (two goals, two assists) in 10 games, including the overtime winning goal in Game 5 of the Atlantic Division Finals at Providence. A strong playoff performer, Bowey was part of the Hershey club that advanced to the 2016 Calder Cup Finals.

This is the first NHL recall for Bowey and the defender will join the Capitals ahead of their contest tonight in Philadelphia. Bowey was a second round selection (53rd overall) by Washington in the 2013 NHL Draft. The former Kelowna defender won a WHL championship with the Rockets in 2014-15, and also won a gold medal with Canada at the 2015 IIHF World Junior Championships.

The Hershey Bears 2017-18 season is here! The home opener is tonight at 7 p.m. versus Belleville.
