Hurricanes Recall Forward Drayson Bowman

RALEIGH, NC—Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that forward Drayson Bowman has been recalled from Spokane of the Western Hockey League (WHL), and will be joining the team for the duration of the 2009 Stanley Cup playoffs.

Bowman, 20, finished the season ranked fourth in the WHL in goals with 47 this season, and led all Chiefs skaters with 83 points (47g, 36a) in 62 games played. Carolina’s third-round pick in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft, Bowman also led all Chiefs in goals (8) and points (13) during the WHL playoffs, as Spokane knocked off Seattle before falling to Vancouver in seven games in the WHL’s Western Conference Semifinals. Born in Grand Rapids, MI, and raised in Littleton, CO, Bowman skated for the United States at the 2009 World Junior Championships, notching three goals and one assist (4 points) in six games for the Americans.

Bowman will skate and travel with the Hurricanes throughout the post-season, joining forwards Zach Boychuk, Patrick Dwyer and Brandon Sutter, defensemen Brett Carson and Bryan Rodney, and goaltender Justin Peters, who were recalled from Albany last weekend. The group of extra players the team carries in the postseason is affectionately known as the “Black Aces.” Though their names do not appear on the team’s regular roster, the players gain valuable postseason experience by practicing and traveling with the team, and they are available to be added to the team’s roster if necessary.
