Bowman Signs PTO With Montreal

News: Drayson Bowman signed a professional tryout contract with the Canadiens on Tuesday, Josh Rimer of Sportsnet reports.
Analysis: Drayson Bowman, 25, appeared in 70 games for the Hurricanes last season, netting four goals and eight assists. He hasn't proven to be a prolific hitter on the checking line during his career, so even if he is able to win a roster spot for the Habs, he may be bound for the press box most nights.

Carolina Gets Bowman Back Tuesday

News: Drayson Bowman (illness) returned to the lineup Tuesday against the Rangers, seeing 10:40 of total ice time.
Analysis: As long as Drayson Bowman remains in a bottom-six role for the Hurricanes logging minimal ice time, he's not likely to present a lot of production for fantasy players.

Hurricanes' Bowman Questionable With Illness

News: Drayson Bowman (illness) is questionable for Thursday's game against the Stars.
Analysis: Drayson Bowman sat out Thursday's morning skate after feeling under the weather. The Hurricanes will wait and see how he recovers during the afternoon before making a decision on his status later in the evening.

Hurricanes' Bowman Picks Up Two Helpers

News: Drayson Bowman had two assists and finished with a plus-2 rating in Saturday's 6-3 win over the Senators.
Analysis: With three goals and six helpers in 44 games this season, Drayson Bowman's two-assist game shouldn't warrant much attention outside of deeper leagues. He's currently locked into a fourth-line role, and the limited minutes lowers his chances of making an offensive impact on a regular basis.

Hurricanes' Bowman Set To Play Saturday

News: Drayson Bowman (lower body) appears likely to play Saturday vs. the Panthers, Chip Alexander of the Charlotte News & Observer reports.
Analysis: Drayson Bowman was on the ice for both Friday's practice and Saturday's morning skate after sitting out Monday with the injury, so it looks like he'll be a full-go against the Panthers. He will see time as the left wing on the fourth line alongside Manny Malhotra and Radek Dvorak.

Drayson Bowman

Hurricanes' Bowman Nursing Lower-Body Injury

News: Drayson Bowman missed Tuesday's practice with a lower-body injury, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: The Hurricanes won't play again until Saturday, so Drayson Bowman still has a good deal of time to recover from the injury before the team would determine whether a call-up is needed to take his spot in the lineup. He also missed Monday's practice with the injury.

Drayson Bowman

Canes' Bowman Sees Minimal Ice Time Vs. Habs

News: Drayson Bowman skated just 5:58 during the Canes' 5-4 OT win over Montreal on Tuesday.
Analysis: There's been no word yet regarding a possible injury, or whether he was simply benched by coach Kirk Muller. Drayson Bowman did register a minus-2 for the few minutes he did see, so we're guessing the latter. More as we know it.

Drayson Bowman, LW, MON

Drayson Bowman

Hurricanes' Bowman Returns From Injury Thursday

News: Drayson Bowman (undisclosed) logged 11:45 of ice time in his return to action Thursday.
Analysis: Drayson Bowman had been scratched from the lineup the previous three games with an undisclosed injury, but looks to be good to go after firing off two shots on goal and registering a hit in his return to the ice. With just five points in 30 games on the season, he shouldn't warrant much fantasy interest in most formats.

Bowman Helps Canes Squeak Past Ducks

News: Drayson Bowman scored his second goal of the season and fired a season-high six shots on goal during Friday's 3-2 shootout win over Anaheim.
Analysis: After three seasons splitting time between AHL Charlotte and the parent club, Drayson Bowman finally seems to have found himself a full-time role with the 'Canes this season, having played in all 19 games thus far. Even though he's still skating in a checking-line role, his ice time has steadily gone up over the past few weeks, from roughly eight minutes per game to 14:23 Friday against the Ducks. His fantasy value remains limited to very deep leagues right now, but he's worth keeping an eye on.

Canes' Bowman Tallies First Goal Friday

News: Drayson Bowman scored his first goal of the season during the Hurricanes' loss to the Avalanche on Friday.
Analysis: Drayson Bowman's first few seasons in the NHL have been a disappointment on the offensive front, especially considering how well he played in juniors. With just one point through the first 11 games, it doesn't appear as if things are changing that much on the scoring front. There's definite potential to do more, but he shouldn't be considered as anything but a low-end option at this time.

Hurricanes' Bowman Seeing Time On Top Line

News: Drayson Bowman was given a look on the top line with Eric Staal and Alexander Semin during Sunday's team scrimmage, the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: With regular top-three winger Jiri Tlusty out with an upper-body injury, Drayson Bowman responded well during Sunday's intrasquad game with a power-play goal and an assist. A year ago, Bowman played 37 games for the 'Canes in a checking-line role and finished the season with just three goals and two assists. At the junior level, Bowman was known as more of a scorer (242 points in 262 games over four seasons with Spokane of the WHL), but has so far failed to show much offensive potential at the NHL level (21 points in 106 games). That said, he's worth keeping an eye on in deeper formats, especially if Tlusty is out for an extended period and Bowman winds up inheriting the top-line role on a more permanent basis.

Hurricanes' Bowman Likely Done For Season

News: Drayson Bowman (upper body) will likely miss the rest of the season, the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: Assuming that's the case, Drayson Bowman will finish the season with five points and 17 PIMs in 37 games for the Hurricanes.

Canes' Bowman Sustains Upper Body Injury Tuesday

News: Drayson Bowman sustained an upper body injury during Tuesday's game against the Penguins, the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: The injury might have explained Drayson Bowman's reduced ice time against the Penguins, as he saw about four minutes less than he normally would. He should be considered questionable for Thursday's game against the Capitals.

Rare Point For Hurricanes' Bowman

News: Drayson Bowman notched his fourth point of the year -- an assist on Riley Nash's second-period goal -- during Tuesday's 4-0 win over the Capitals. He was also plus-2 on the night and chipped in five penalty minutes.
Analysis: Not bad for a guy who saw just under nine minutes in ice time. Unfortunately, the offensive prowess that Drayson Bowman displayed in juniors (242 points over five years with WHL Spokane) has not carried over to his NHL career just yet, so expect him to continue in a checking-line capacity for the 'Canes for the time being.

Canes' Bowman Lands Roster Spot

News: Drayson Bowman earned an Opening Night roster spot and will skate on the Hurricanes' fourth line Saturday against Florida.
Analysis: His place is hardly guaranteed, so Drayson Bowman will need to play well in order to avoid a return to Charlotte (AHL) in the coming weeks. It's likely that Bowman will rotate on the final line with the team's other depth forwards.

Bowman Scoring Early For Checkers

News: The AHL Charlotte Checkers lost their first game of the season Sunday night, but Drayson Bowman continued his hot start, scoring his fourth goal in five games.
Analysis: Drayson Bowman, like a lot of the players in the suddenly stacked AHL, has a successful minor league background with intermittent NHL experience. At 23, the American is still a quality prospect and his hot start is encouraging. He should add quality depth to the Hurricanes' left wing corps in the future to come.

Carolina Signs Bowman

News: The Hurricanes signed Drayson Bowman to a two-year deal Monday, Hurricanes.NHL.com reports.
Analysis: The deal is two-way in 2012 and one-way in 2013. Drayson Bowman is vaguely intriguing after posting 13 points (six goals) with modest minutes in 37 games last year, as well as roughly a point per game in the AHL the last two years, but he's mostly off the fantasy radar for at least the immediate future.

'Canes Send Bowman Back To Checkers

News: Drayson Bowman has been sent down to AHL Charlotte, reports Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News and Observer.
Analysis: Drayson Bowman's send-down makes room for teammate Andreas Nodl's return. The 23-year-old will help the Checkers make a playoff run in the AHL.

Canes' Bowman Scores In Tuesday's Loss

News: Drayson Bowman scored 32 seconds after teammate Tim Brent in Tuesday's 4-2 loss to the Rangers.
Analysis: The goal was Drayson Bowman's third of the year and pulled the Hurricanes within one against the Rangers, but Carolina still ultimately came up short.

Hurricanes Get Bowman Back

News: Drayson Bowman (sinus) returned to action Sunday, seeing 11:52 worth of ice time against the Panthers.
Analysis: With just seven points and no PIMs in 26 games to date, Drayson Bowman is a marginal fantasy option these days.

Carolina's Bowman Doubtful Monday

News: Drayson Bowman is doubtful to suit up Monday due to sinus problems, Chip Alexander of TSN.ca reports.
Analysis: Even when healthy, Drayson Bowman has been a weak option in fantasy leagues. He should be considered day-to-day going forward.

2/15/2012

Drayson Bowman, LW, MON

Drayson Bowman

Carolina Recalls Bowman

News: Carolina recalled Drayson Bowman on Tuesday, Hurricanes.NHL.com reports.
Analysis: Drayson Bowman is best avoided in fantasy leagues until he shows the ability to post better numbers than the six points (two goals) he has in 17 NHL appearances this year.

2/12/2012

Drayson Bowman, LW, MON

Drayson Bowman

Hurricanes Send Bowman Down To AHL

News: The Hurricanes assigned Drayson Bowman to Charlotte of the AHL on Sunday according to a team release.
Analysis: The Canes needed to make room for Jermome Samson who was recalled earlier today. Drayson Bowman had dressed for only 17 games and recorded just two goals, four assists, and a minus-3 rating.

Bowman Active For Carolina Thursday

News: Drayson Bowman will play in place of Chad LaRose (illness) against Boston on Thursday, Raleigh News & Observer writer Chip Alexander reports.
Analysis: Although Drayson Bowman has been promising this year, scoring three assists in his last four games, he's best left alone outside of deep leagues.

Canes Recall Bowman

News: Drayson Bowman has been recalled by the Hurricanes, the club's official Twitter feed reports.
Analysis: Drayson Bowman has already played 13 games for the Hurricanes this season, notching two goals and three assists. Don't expect this to be a long-term callup, however, as the 'Canes need a replacement for Chad LaRose, who is day-to-day with an illness. Bowman could be sent down as soon as LaRose is ready to go again.
