Madison Bowey (born April 22, 1995) is a Canadian professional ice hockey defenceman. He plays with the Hershey Bears in the American Hockey League (AHL). Bowey was selected by the Washington Capitals in the second round (53rd overall) of the 2013 NHL Entry Draft.

During the 2012–13 season he played with Team Canada to win gold medals at both the 2012 Ivan Hlinka Memorial Tournament[1] and the 2013 IIHF World U18 Championships.[2] Leading up to the 2013 NHL Entry Draft, Bowey was rated as a top prospect.[3]

Playing career[edit]

Junior[edit]

Bowey was selected by the Kelowna Rockets in the second round, 23rd overall, in the 2010 WHL Bantam Draft. He appeared in 3 games at the end of Kelowna's 2010–11 WHL season recording one assist. The next year he emerged as a mainstay on the Rockets' blue-line, putting up 8 goals and 21 points in 57 games with a +3 rating and 39 PIM. He also scored a goal in 4 games in Kelowna's first round sweep at the hands of the Portland Winterhawks. Bowey also represented Team Canada West at the 2012 World U-17 Hockey Challenge, recording a goal in 5 games. During the 2012–13 WHL season Bowey emerged as one of Kelowna's most valuable defenders, scoring 12 goals and 30 points in 69 games with a +41 rating. His plus-minus rating that season was good for thirteenth amongst WHL players that season and he solidified his status as a major NHL prospect for the 2013 NHL Entry Draft. He helped lead the Rockets to a division title and a seven-game first round post-season victory over the Seattle Thunderbirds before being defeated by the arch rival Kamloops Blazers in the second round. Bowey recorded 4 assists in 11 total playoff games.

In the 2013–14 WHL season with Kelowna, Bowey scored 25 points in his first 25 games, demonstrating his development into a solid two-way defenceman.[4]

Professional[edit]

On April 2, 2014, the Washington Capitals of the National Hockey League (NHL) signed Bowey to a three-year, entry-level contract[5] to begin with the 2014–15 NHL season.
