Bantam star Bowen ranked among Canada’s best

A strong performance at a tournament in Delta has Chilliwack Minor Hockey's Jason Bowen on the HockeyNow radar.

Chilliwack Minor Hockey bantam star Jason Bowen has been recognized as one of the top players in Canada for the month of November.

The Chilliwack A1 forward earned the honour from HockeyNow, which shines the spotlight on 10 top players from BC, Alberta and Ontario each month. Bowen was a standout performer at the Tim Jardine Bantam AAA Showcase in South Delta, tying for the scoring lead and making the tournament all-star squad.

HockeyNow said of Bowen, “Equally adept at scoring goals as he is at passing the puck. A well-rounded talent on offence with many weapons in his arsenal.”

The Chilliwackian is now in the mix for HockeyNow’s Player of the Year award, which has been won in the past by National Hockey Leaguers Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, Colin Fraser, Gilbert Brule, Karl Alzner and Stefan Elliott.

Bowen is the younger brother of Ryan Bowen, who played for the Chilliwack Chiefs last season and now toils for the Western Hockey League’s Moose Jaw Warriors.
