KENNEWICK, WA – Tri-City Americans general manager Bob Tory announced today that the team has acquired 18-year-old center Nick Bowman from the Kootenay Ice in exchange for a sixth-round pick in the 2021 WHL Bantam Draft.
Bowman was selected in the sixth-round of the 2015 WHL Bantam Draft by the Edmonton Oil Kings. He has played 137 games through three seasons in the WHL and tallied 29 points (15 goals, 14 assists).
The Sherwood Park native is currently playing in his hometown for the Sherwood Park Crusaders of the Alberta Junior Hockey League.
“Nick is an experienced WHL player who adds depth to our organization,” said Tory. “He is a very good skater with a good offensive upside. Bowman will remain with the Sherwood Park Crusaders for the 2018-19 season and will affiliate with Americans.”
