Remember the three-team trade from last year? Of course you do: that’s how Matt Duchene was sent to the Ottawa Senators and how we got Sam Girard. Well, Shane Bowers was acquired by the Colorado Avalanche through that trade.

Drafted 28th overall by the Senators in 2017, Bowers is currently playing for the Boston University Terriers, and has registered eight points in 15 games played (three goals, five assists).

At the time of this writing, Canada has only played one game, and it was a big one: a 14-0 win against Denmark. No, it’s not a typo: team Canada scored 14 times and denied Denmark of any goal. Bowers didn’t get points, but as previously mentioned, the tournament is only getting started. We expect a good performance from the guy ranked third at Boston University last season.
