Blackhawks sign Bowey, immediately put him on waivers

A new addition... kinda... for the Blackhawks.


This just in, the Chicago Blackhawks have officially signed free agent defenseman Madison Bowey to a two year contract worth $725,000 per year.

Check it out:

Bowey was then subsequently placed on waivers by the Blackhawks so that he could officially be added to their roster.

Should Bowey clear waivers, as expected, he'll join the Blackhawks' "taxi squad" tomorrow.

The 25 year old defenseman posted career highs in assists (14), points (17) and games played (53) for the Detroit Red Wings last season. He was originally selected by the Washington Capitals in the second round (53rd overall) of the 2013 National Hockey League Draft. Bowey played two seasons (2017-19) with the Capitals prior to being traded to the Red Wings on Feb. 22, 2019. The blueliner was a member of the Capitals when they won the 2018 Stanley Cup. He registered 12 helpers in 51 regular-season games that season. Bowey has 39 points (5G, 34A) in 154 career regular-season NHL games.

Over parts of four seasons (2015-18, 2019) in the American Hockey League, Bowey has recorded 52 points (9G, 43A) in 114 regular-season games for the Hershey Bears and Grand Rapids Griffins. He has added two goals and eight helpers in 31 Calder Cup Playoff games.
