Chilliwack native Ryan Bowen made his long-awaited Western Hockey League debut last Tuesday.
The 16 year old dressed as an affiliate player for the Moose Jaw Warriors Dec. 16 as they hosted the Lethbridge Hurricanes.
Bowen finished -1 on the night with no points.
He was back in the lineup last Wednesday, with the Warriors visiting the Prince Albert Raiders. Bowen finished -2 but was active, generating four shots on goal.
The teenager has spent most of this season with the BCHL’s Chilliwack Chiefs, collecting six goals and 15 points in 31 games.
He will return to the Chiefs after Christmas.
Bowen was Moose Jaw’s fifth round pick in the 2013 bantam draft.
