Red Wings Recall Bowey

December 13, 2019 - American Hockey League (AHL) - Grand Rapids Griffins News Release

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. - The Detroit Red Wings on Friday recalled defenseman Madison Bowey from the Grand Rapids Griffins.

In his Griffins debut on Wednesday at San Diego, Bowey assisted on Matt Ford's game-winning goal with 1:27 remaining in regulation. The 24-year-old has appeared in 22 games for Detroit this season and ties for second among team defensemen in scoring with eight points (1-7-8) while adding 16 penalty minutes in 17:46 of average ice time.

Should he return to Detroit's lineup, Bowey will become the 182nd Griffins alumnus to play in the NHL. The Red Wings play at Montreal on Saturday at 7 p.m.

A 2018 Stanley Cup champion with the Washington Capitals, Bowey was acquired by Detroit from Washington along with a second-round pick in the 2020 NHL Entry Draft in exchange for Nick Jensen and a fifth-round pick in the 2019 NHL Entry Draft on Feb. 22, 2019. Selected in the second round, 53rd overall, of the 2013 NHL Entry Draft by the Capitals, the 6-foot-2, 202-pound blueliner has logged 123 career NHL games between Washington and Detroit since making his NHL debut on Oct. 14, 2017, totaling 30 points (3-27-30) and 86 PIM.

In his fifth professional season, Bowey has 114 regular season AHL games to his credit since 2015-16 between Hershey and Grand Rapids, accounting for 52 points (9-43-52), a plus-28 rating and 94 PIM. In 31 Calder Cup Playoff games he shows 10 points (2-8-10) and helped lead Hershey to the 2016 Calder Cup Finals.

A native of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Bowey has earned gold medals while suiting up for Canada at the 2015 IIHF World Junior Championship, 2013 IIHF World Under-18 Championship and 2012 Ivan Hlinka Memorial Tournament.

The Griffins (10-13-1-2) continue their season-high six-game road trip against the Bakersfield Condors today at 10 p.m. EST.
