Bowey was reassigned to AHL Hershey on Sunday, per the AHL transactions report. The rookie blueliner has featured in 28 games for the Caps this season, logging seven points -- all assists -- while skating just under 14 minutes per contest. It's unclear why Bowey was sent down, though he should return to the NHL level at some point this season. Taylor Chorney is now expected to serve as Washington's sixth defenseman.
Bowey recorded two assists during Tuesday's 5-2 victory over the Avalanche. Bowey notched his first points since Nov. 12 to give him seven points in 26 games in his rookie season. The Capitals expect big things from the 22-year-old in the future and his game is certainly developing, but his fantasy value remains confined to deeper leagues and dynasty formats for the time being.
Bowey finished with an assist during Sunday's 2-1 overtime win over the Oilers. The rookie defenseman continues to find his game in the NHL with five assists in his first 12 games. Make sure he's owned in all dynasty formats, but he needs to grow his game further to have much fantasy value in standard settings.
Bowey (lower body) declared himself fit to play in Friday night's game against the Penguins, Isabelle Khurshudyan of The Washington Post reports. Look for Bowey to reprise his role on the third pair with Brooks Orpik in the upcoming contest. The rookie has collected four assists with a plus-2 rating through 10 games.
Bowey (lower body) was held out of Tuesday's 3-1 loss to the Sabres, Isabelle Khurshudyan of The Washington Post reports. This explains why Bowey was not on the bench despite participating in line rushes just prior to the opening faceoff. Head coach Barry Trotz described the injury as a "tweak" and indicated the 22-year-old defenseman was held out as a precaution. He is considered day-to-day, but with Washington not in action until a Friday showdown with arch-rival Pittsburgh, his absence may be short-lived.
