Dowd bagged an assist in a 4-1 loss to the Sharks on Wednesday.

Dowd has had a strong start to his rookie campaign with 11 points in 21 games. He hasn't thrown a ton of rubber on net (21 shots), but then again, he was known as more of a disher in college and the minors -- he netted 14 goals and 34 assists last year for AHL Ontario.
