Capitals prospect Madison Bowey registered three points (1g, 2a) on Monday in the Kelowna Rockets’ 7-3 win over Rimouski Océanic in the Memorial Cup.
The Memorial Cup is a four-team, round-robin tournament between a host team and the champions of the CHL’s three leagues: the Ontario Hockey League (OHL), Quebec Major Junior League (QMJHL) and Western Hockey League (WHL). Bowey captained the Rockets to the WHL championship this season, defeating the Brandon Wheat Kings in four games in the WHL final. Bowey ranked first among WHL defensemen in points (19) and goals (7) during the playoffs. The Rockets (1-1) face the OHL Champion Oshawa Generals (2-0) on Tuesday.
Bowey was drafted by the Capitals in the second round, 53rd overall, in the 2013 NHL Draft. The 6’1”, 202-pound defenseman led the Rockets to the best record in the WHL’s Western Conference during the 2014-15 regular season (53-13-5-1, 112 points) and ranked third among WHL defensemen in goals (17), fifth in points (60) and tied for fifth in assists (43).
