Madison Bowey's Up And Down Season

01/06/2020 at 4:52pm EST

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."

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
