One Capitals top prospect Madison Bowey added another huge WHL game to his resume. After he collected three assists in a power play show in his first game back in junior, Bowey scored career-high five points (two goals, three assists) in Kelowna’s dramatic 7-5 victory over Vancouver that was broadcast around Western Canada on Shaw TV.
Both of Bowey’s goals came shorthanded. All three of his assists were recorded while the Rockets were on the power play.
Kelowna allowed three unanswered goals in the first period. The Rockets started the second period on the power play, and it paid off. Bowey’s first assist was a heavy slapper from the blue line. Nick Merkley got a piece of the puck in front of the net, deflecting it in.
Just 26 seconds later, Bowey carried the puck down the right wing during the power play and fed it perfectly to Carter Rigby, whose shot tied the game at three.
In the middle of the third period, Bowey joined Kelowna’s shorthanded rush as a trailing player. His shot was slowed down by a defender and got past the netminder for Winnipeg-native’s first goal of the season. Kelowna jumped to a 5-3 lead.
Thirty-eight seconds later, with Kelowna on the PP, the Caps prospect contributed to another goal, faking a slapper and then hitting Tyson Baillie located in The Ovi Spot™ with a perfect pass. Now that could be a valuable skill.
Vancouver bounced back drawing within one, but Bowey put the final nail in the coffin with a shorthanded empty-netter from the other end of the ice.
Just two games into the season, Bowey already has eight points. He was named first star in both of the games.
