Madison Bowey (born April 22, 1995) is a Canadian ice hockey defenceman.[1] He is plays with the Kelowna Rockets in the Western Hockey League (WHL).[1] Bowey was selected by the Washington Capitals in the 2nd 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[2] and the 2013 IIHF World U18 Championships.[3] Leading up to the 2013 NHL Entry Draft, Bowey was rated as a top prospect.[4]

Junior career[edit]

Bowey was selected by the Kelowna Rockets in the second round, 23rd overall, in the 2010 WHL Bantam Draft.[1] 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 2011-12 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.[2] 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.[5]

International Play[edit]

Bowey represented the Canada men's national under-18 ice hockey team at the 2013 IIHF World U18 Championships.[3]. Bowey scored the tying goal against the United States in the gold medal match before teammate and Toronto Maple Leafs first round draft pick Frederik Gauthier scored the game-winner in a 3-2 victory over the heavily favoured American squad. He ended up scoring 2 goals and 4 points in 7 games with a +3 rating over the course of the tournament for the Canadians.
