Bowey did not receive a qualifying off from the Red Wings and will be a UFA on Friday, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.
Bowey's inclusion among the non-tendered players was a bit of a surprise, as he averaged a respectable 17:54 per game and posted 17 points in 53 contests last season. It's possible the Red Wings will try to negotiate a different contract with the blueliner prior to free agency opening up on Friday. The 25-year-old was a second-round pick by the Capitals in 2013.
Bowey set up his 14th goal of the season Tuesday in a 5-2 loss to the Hurricanes.
The 24-year-old defenseman is proving that he's more than a flash in the pan. Bowey demonstrated patience and terrific vision on Christofer Ehn's game-tying tally. Now sitting at 17 points through 53 games, Bowey is building his case to earn a raise on the heels of a two-year, $2 million contract originally procured by the Capitals, the team that selected him in the second round (53rd overall) of the 2013 NHL Entry Draft.
Bowey picked up an assist Sunday in a 4-2 loss to the Flames.
Limited top-level experience has made it relatively easy for Bowey to cruise past his previous career high in the points department. The former Capitals defenseman is up to three goals and 13 helpers through 48 games this season.
Bowey (eye) is expected to be in the lineup against the Sabres on Tuesday, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.
Bowey's return to the lineup is likely to impact only those fantasy owners in deeper formats, considering he's notched just 15 points in 44 games this season. Still, the WInnipeg native could hit the 20-point mark for the first time in his career. With the 24-year-old good to go, Gustav Lindstrom will likely find himself back with AHL Grand Rapids soon.
Bowey (undisclosed) isn't out for warmups, signalling he won't suit up in Sunday's game against Boston, Dana Wakiji of the Red Wings' official site reports.
Bowey left Friday's game against the Blue Jackets in the first period, and as evidenced by this news, the issue is serious enough to force him out of more game time. Even though Bowey is sidelined, the Red Wings got good news on the injury front with Mike Green (upper body) activated off injured reserve, and he's expected to replace Bowey in the lineup.
Bowey (undisclosed) will not return to Friday's game against the Blue Jackets.
Bowey posted a hit and a blocked shot in 3:25 before being ruled out for the remainder of the game during the first intermission. The Red Wings will have to finish Friday's contest with five blueliners. They next play Sunday versus the Bruins.
Bowey scored a goal on two shots and had two PIM with two blocks in a 5-1 loss to the Red Wings on Sunday.
Bowey was the only Red Wing to solve Buffalo netminder Linus Ullmark, collecting his third goal of the season 12 minutes into the second period. The 24-year-old has a career-high 14 points in 35 games this season, his first full year with the Red Wings.
Bowey dished out an assist and finished with a plus-2 rating in Tuesday's 4-3 win over the Canadiens.
Bowey logged 18:36 of ice time, which is his highest mark since Nov. 27, and he enjoyed rare power-play time as well. The 24-year-old's helper pushed him to a new career high of 13 points through 33 games.
Bowey had a goal and an assist and added two blocks with two PIM in Sunday's 4-2 loss to Los Angeles.
Bowey isn't much of an offensive producer -- Sunday's performance was his first two-point game of the year -- but he does have 10 points in 24 games already this season. That's nice production for a player who totaled 22 points in 101 career games over his first two NHL seasons.
Bowey was recalled from AHL Grand Rapids on Friday.
Bowey served as a healthy scratch in his previous three games with the Red Wings. Jonathan Ericsson suffered an undisclosed injury versus Winnipeg on Thursday, which will lead to either Bowey or Dylan McIlrath slotting into the lineup for Saturday's matchup with Montreal.
Bowey, who was reassigned to AHL Grand Rapids on Tuesday, did not demonstrate enough growth in his game while he was with the Red Wings, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports, citing head coach Jeff Blashill.
The Wings reportedly were disappointed with Bowey's efforts in his own zone, which is understandable given that he's committed 14 giveaways compared to a pair of takeaways, and his minus-13 rating is a career-worst mark. However, the former Capitals defenseman apparently could play his way back to the big club. "This doesn't need to be the end for him by any means," Blashill said. "As I said to him, go down and play like you don't belong down there. Then people will be pounding on my door to have him come back up. His play will dictate his opportunities."
Bowey was placed on waivers by the Red Wings on Monday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.
Bowey served as a healthy scratch in Detroit's previous three games, so the decision to move him down to the minors shouldn't come as a shock. The news could also be an indication that Trevor Daley (undisclosed) or Danny DeKeyser (undisclosed) will be ready to play against the Jets on Tuesday. Assuming Bowey clears, he will be reassigned to AHL Grand Rapids but figures to remain atop the list of potential call-ups.
Bowey went minus-4 with three giveaways in Wednesday's 6-0 loss to the Maple Leafs.
The Red Wings have been shut out in two straight games, and you're unlikely to see anyone paging through their defensive corps for help in fantasy games. Bowey was on a nice run prior to sitting out against the Hurricanes on Sunday -- six points through eight games -- but his lackluster effort Wednesday is tough to ignore.
Bowey delivered an assist in Saturday's 5-1 loss to the Devils.
Bowey is looking to cap off a terrific month, as he's produced a goal and five helpers over 10 games. His strong play merits more ice time on its own, but the Wings have three blueliners on the injured list to virtually guarantee that he'll have a significant role from the back end.
Bowey recorded an assist, three shots on goal and two blocked shots in a 4-3 shootout loss to the Sharks on Saturday.
Bowey provided the secondary helper on Taro Hirose's goal in the second period. The defenseman has been strong with four points in his last five games. However, Bowey has only six points and a minus-6 rating through 17 contests this year. The 24-year-old has added 20 shots, 12 hits and 18 blocks, providing decent-but-unremarkable non-scoring numbers.
Bowey scored on his lone shot on goal in Sunday's 3-2 win over Vegas.
Bowey tied the game at 2-2 midway through the third period with a splendid effort, beating Malcolm Subban from the top of the right circle while falling to the ice. It was the first goal of the season for Bowey and just his third NHL goal in 115 career games. He has points in back-to-back games for the first time this season, but don't go looking here for offensive help.
Bowey registered an assist in Friday's 4-2 win over the Bruins.
Bowey has three helpers through 13 games to comprise his entire point total. It will be difficult for the rearguard to consistently generate offense on the third pair for a Red Wings team that has compiled just 39 goals versus 70 allowed through the first month of the season.
Bowey picked up an assist in 13:31 of ice time during Friday's 3-1 win over the Oilers.
Bowey has been a healthy scratch for five of the Red Wings' first 13 games of the campaign and has only averaged 14:18 of ice time per contest when included in the lineup, so he can be ignored in fantasy circles.
Bowey notched an assist in Friday's 2-1 loss to the Oilers.
It's the first point of the year for the 24-year-old defenseman. Bowey has alternated between the lineup and the press box at times this season, as he's failed to make enough of an impact on the third pairing to solidify his spot. Bowey's inconsistent playing time and lack of production makes him a non-factor in fantasy circles.
Bowey went minus-2 in Saturday's 5-2 home loss to the Maple Leafs, and he remains pointless on the young season.
In fairness, Bowey has only drawn into three of five games at the outset of the 2019-20 campaign, but that's a problem of its own. Detroit gave up beloved blueliner Nick Jensen to pry Bowey away from the Capitals last season, and it's rather disconcerting that he's not being iced in every game. Jonathan Ericsson (undisclosed) and Trevor Daley (lower body) are banged up, but the fear is that Bowey will relinquish playing time to Alex Biega if he doesn't pick up the slack.
