Adam Lowry (born March 29, 1993) is a Canadian ice hockey player who is currently playing for the Winnipeg Jets in the National Hockey League (NHL).

Early life[edit]

Lowry was born on March 29, 1993 in St. Louis, Missouri, where his father, Dave, was a member of the St. Louis Blues. In 2008, Lowry was drafted in the fourth round, 78th overall by the Swift Current Broncos at the 2008 WHL Bantam Draft.[1] Despite being drafted, Lowry played one more season of minor hockey with the Calgary Rangers of the Alberta Midget Hockey League.

Playing career[edit]

Swift Current Broncos[edit]

On August 27, 2009, Lowry signed a WHL contract with his draft team, the Swift Current Broncos.[2] In his rookie season with the Broncos, Lowry scored 15 goals and 34 points in 61 games played as a 16-year old. Lowry won the Daryl K. (Doc) Seaman Trophy as scholastic player of the year.[3]

Entering his second season with the Broncos, Lowry became ill with mononucleosis prior to training camp.[4] As a result, Lowry was unable to play in August and September 2010.[4] Despite his early season illness, Lowry finished the season with 18 goals and 45 points in 66 games played as the Broncos failed to advance to the WHL playoffs. For the second consecutive season, Lowry was the Eastern Conference nominee for the Daryl K. (Doc) Seaman Trophy; however, was unable to defend his title from the previous season, losing the award to Colin Smith of the Kamloops Blazers.[3] Following his season with the Broncos, Lowry was ranked 58th among North American skaters by the NHL Central Scouting Bureau heading into the 2011 NHL Entry Draft, and improvement over his ranking of 62nd at the midway point of the season.[5] On June 25, 2011, Lowry was drafted in the third round, 67th overall by the Winnipeg Jets.[6]

On April 4, 2013, Adam Lowry was signed to an amateur tryout contract with the St. John’s IceCaps.

Personal life[edit]

Despite being born in St. Louis, Missouri, Lowry was raised in Calgary, Alberta where his father, Dave, was an assistant coach for the NHL's Calgary Flames.[4] Lowry's older brother, Joel, is also an ice hockey player who plays for Cornell University and, like Adam, was drafted in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft, in the fifth round, 140th overall by the Los Angeles Kings.[6][7] Lowry also resided in Miami, Florida and San Jose, California as a result of his father's career.
