The Capitals’ NHL blue line is the deepest it has been in years, and the farm is starting to get stacked with defensive prospects as well. Nate Schmidt, Patrick Wey, and Connor Carrick have each shown that they will soon be ready to take the next step. Also developing rapidly: 2013 second-round pick Madison Bowey.
During last week’s Development Camp, the 19-year-old was one of the most mature prospects out on the ice. He dominated Saturday’s scrimmage, creating a number of chances on the rush.
Bowey’s most creative effort came early, a ridiculous no-look pass that led to Nathan Walker’s goal.
Let’s slow this down a little bit and zoom in. What an incredible pass, right through the legs and everything.
The Team Red defender goes to full splits and still can’t stop it.
Bowey now returns to his junior team, the Kelowna Rockets, where he is captain. Bowey will try to take them past the WHL Conference Finals, which they lost last season.
He should be fun to watch.
Thanks to Daniel E. who first posted a YouTube of the Walker goal and pointed out the ridiculous pass.
