The Washington Capitals on Wednesday signed defenseman Madison Bowey to an entry-level contract

Defenseman Madison Bowey signed a three-year, entry-level contract with the Washington Capitals on Wednesday. The contract begins with the 2014-15 season.

Bowey, 18, was chosen by the Capitals in the second round (No. 53) of the 2013 NHL Draft and spent the past three seasons with the Kelowna Rockets of the Western Hockey League. Bowey had 21 goals and 60 points in 72 games this season while serving as captain. He has three points in five WHL playoff games.

Quote of the Day

I loved being in the jerseys again and they worked some magic for us. It was weird in warm-ups, seeing No. 22 in that jersey and thinking he’s [Mike Gartner], and No. 8 reminds you of Danny Briere … every number had me thinking back to the guys who wore them and smiling.
