THE SHINNY:
Finishing as a point per game player with Windsor, Cam Fowler is one of the top offensive defensemen in the draft (55 points in 55 games).

Fowler was instrumental in helping Windsor win the OHL title picking up 14 points in 19 games (three goals) as well as helping Team USA win gold at the World Junior Championships.

Director of NHL Central Scouting's E.J. McGuire: “He’s your prototypical offensive-defenseman. He's your (quarterback) on your (power-play), he's your great skating offensive-defenseman and he controls the puck with his skills. If you're looking for a comparison, think of Kaberle with the Maple Leafs. But in sticking with his country, maybe even a future Leetch or Housley.”

Fowler On US Hockey: "t's unbelievable. And ever since I got to the program when I was 16 and I was on the under 17 team, we just lived and breathed USA Hockey. We were at the rink and from two to six every day, we were practicing and lifting, and I think that's what USA Hockey instills in all their players. They want that work ethic, and because they know that it's going to pay off in the end."

NEWS:
Blue-liner Fowler A Blue-Chip Prospect
(5.17.10) His father is from Newfoundland and he was born in Windsor, but Spitfires defenceman Cam Fowler is nevertheless the pride of the American hockey program right now.

Fowler, who left Windsor as a toddler and grew up in Detroit idolizing the Red Wings' Nicklas Lidstrom, was a key element in the gold medal winning American hockey team at this winter's World Juniors and is widely expected to be selected in the Top 5 at next month's NHL entry draft.

Along with projected top pick -- and teammate -- Taylor Hall, Fowler is about to become an 18-year-old millionaire.
