Bowman gets two-year deal from Canes

Posted July 23, 2012

— The Carolina Hurricanes signed left wing Drayson Bowman to a two-year contract Monday. The deal will pay Bowman $600,000 on the NHL level or $105,000 on the American Hockey League (AHL) level in 2012-13. He will be paid $600,000 in 2013-14.

Bowman, 23, split the 2011-12 season between Carolina and the Hurricanes’ AHL affiliate Charlotte Checkers. With the Hurricanes, Bowman (6-foot-1, 190 lbs.) established NHL career highs in goals (6), assists (7), points (13) and games played (37), earning the majority of his NHL playing time in the second half of the season. He added 13 goals and 13 assists (26 points) in 42 games with Charlotte. Carolina Hurricanes Logo More Hurricanes Stories

Drafted by Carolina in the third round, 72nd overall, in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft, Bowman has scored eight goals and earned eight assists (16 points) in 69 career NHL games with the Hurricanes. He has appeared in 149 career AHL games with Albany and Charlotte, totaling 42 goals and 46 assists (88 points). Bowman, who was born in Grand Rapids, Mich., but raised in Littleton, Colo., played junior hockey for Spokane of the Western Hockey League (WHL) prior to turning professional, notching 242 points (130g, 112a) in 265 games and helping the Chiefs capture the 2008 Memorial Cup championship.

The Carolina Hurricanes open their 2012 exhibition schedule on Sept. 26 at Columbus, and play their first exhibition home game on Sept. 28 against the Nashville Predators.

    ...It's a forum, people are allowed to give their comment. Shut up and try to get over your defensiveness.

    It seems we have our 2 way guys locked up...time to go out and find a top six winger!

    the ignorance on these forums is astounding. FAs come here, they do have money, but the Canes don't want the wrong personality to show up. It's not about bargain hunting, it's not about getting the highest paid guy to show up, it's about finding the right group of people who gel together, play well as a team and who can make it happen on and off the ice. Bunch of tools commenting from their Monday Morning Armchairs is all I see wrong with Raleigh.
