Videos- Talk After The Morning Skate

02/26/2019 at 2:01pm EST

from Arthur J. Regner and Dana Wakiji of the Wings website,

Madison Bowey was not seeking a trade from the defending Stanley Cup champion Washington Capitals, but after spending the last few days practicing with the Red Wings, the 23-year-old right-shot defenseman believes it was for the best.

"You never want to get traded. The team that drafted you, the team that kind of brought you up into the league, you want to try to stay with them as long as you can," Bowey said after Tuesday's optional morning skate at Little Caesars Arena. "But things weren't working out for me there personally, so I think coming here to a younger team that's on the rebuild, I think it's a great opportunity. I think just personally it's a great fit for myself and I can't wait to get started here and play these next 20 games."...

"I practiced with him (Daley), so I think that's who I'm going be paired with and (I'm) hoping to have a great game," Bowey said. "He's (Daley) been a big key in contributing and helping me out. All of the guys have been great, from Nik (Nik Kronwall) to Greenie (Mike Green). I think everyone here has been really kind of good at showing me around, making me get as comfortable as quick as I can. I'm looking forward to it."

Wings coach Jeff Blashill confirmed Bowey and Daley will be a defensive pair and he wants the young blueliner to concentrate on the defensive aspect of his game.

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.
