The Washington Capitals may have found a gem in second round pick Madison Bowey. The defenseman, who was drafted 53rd, was ranked 36th overall by Bob McKenzie. He also has an impressive resume. Bowey scored the game-tying goal against the US in the Under-18 World Junior Championships, which helped lead Canada to a gold medal. He also comes from the WHL’s Kelowna Rockets, a team that’s produced several high-quality NHL defensemen including Shea Weber, Duncan Keith, and Luke Schenn. Pretty exciting, right?
The most important factoid about Bowey, however, is that he was an adorable child (see above). Thanks to Madison’s Twitter account for this gem.
