Season Outlook For Madison Bowey

08/23/2019 at 7:54am EDT

from Ansar Khan of Mlive,

2019-20 outlook: Bowey got an opportunity to play regularly after arriving from Washington and logged a fair amount of ice time due to injuries on defense. A stay-at-home, right-shooting defender with decent size and mobility, he can step into opponent to deliver a solid check. But he’ll be evaluated in training camp and the preseason on how well he moves the puck and his ability to limit mistakes.

Bowey is not waiver-exempt, which could work in his favor if the competition for a roster spot is close between him, Oliwer Kaski and Dennis Cholowski, both of whom can be sent to Grand Rapids without waivers. But, given the health issues of several veterans last season, what are the odds this defense is completely healthy at the start of the regular season? So, expect Bowey, the 53rd overall pick in 2013, to be on the team and quite possibly in the lineup opening night.
