from Dana Wakiji and Arthur J. Regner of the Wings website,
In 32 games, Bowey has two goals and 10 assists, which is eighth on the team and second among defensemen.
Only Filip Hronek, who has eight goals and 15 assists in 41 games, has more points.
But at age 24, Bowey is still a work in progress.
"He's had ups and downs," Wings coach Jeff Blashill said after the team's optional on-ice practice at the BELFOR Training Center. "He's had some games where he's played real well, he's had moments in games he's played real well, and when he's playing well he's moving his feet, he's a big body, he can make good outlet passes and he defends pretty well.
"When he doesn't play as well I would say sometimes he doesn't recognize danger, so there's too many real chances against. He's got to eliminate those chances against and just on a consistent basis make the right play, where you're helping us get out of our end, where you're helping us defend, but you're not giving up real chances. He's a little bit on a roller coaster. It's got to even out a bit."
