Prospects Profile: Adam Lowry
Some might say that Jets’ prospect Adam Lowry has some big shoes to fill. The 6-foot-4, 18-year-old is the son of former NHLer, and current assistant coach of the Calgary Flames, Dave Lowry. Dave played 1084 NHL games with Vancouver, St. Louis, San Jose, Florida and Calgary.  What better advice can you take than from your father?

Adam LowrySome might say that Jets’ prospect Adam Lowry has some big shoes to fill.

The 6-foot-4, 18-year-old is the son of former NHLer, and current assistant coach of the Calgary Flames, Dave Lowry. Dave played 1084 NHL games with Vancouver, St. Louis, San Jose, Florida and Calgary.  What better advice can you take than from your father?

“It’s been huge advice,” said Lowry. “He said that you have to do what makes you successful. You can’t change what kind of player you are, even at this level.  You have to realize what role you’re going to play, and play to the best of your ability.”

The Calgary, AB native plays for Swift Current Broncos of the Western Hockey League. Two years ago, in his rookie season, he led his team with 34 points in 61 games and was named WHL’s Scholastic Player of the Year.

“It’s been a great place,” said Lowry of Swift Current. “Under the guidance of (GM and Head Coach of the Broncos) Mark Lam, I’ve kind of been able to develop at my own pace.

“Coming in as a 16-year-old he said, ‘we’re not going to put you in any situation that you’re not going to succeed,’ I think that’s really allowed me to keep my confidence over the last couple years. He’s given me a great opportunity and given me the ball and let me run with it.”

In the 2010-11 season, Lowry improved to 45 points in 65 games. The 187-pound winger was rewarded for his development by being drafted by the Winnipeg Jets in the 3rd round (67th overall), at the 2011 NHL Entry Draft. Lowry attended his first NHL rookie camp and Jets’ training camp this fall.

“It was definitely a new experience that I enjoyed a lot,” said Lowry. “I enjoyed my time in Penticton at the Young Stars Tournament and as the games went on I got more and more comfortable, and each day at camp was the same story. Coming into Winnipeg I wanted to be able to leave a pretty good impression, and I think I was able to do that.”

The feisty forward describes his style of play as a two-way power forward just needing a little bit of time for development.

“I like to crash and bang, play physical and play along the boards,” he said. “I’m not the flashiest player by any means but I think I can put the puck in the net when I’m around it.”

Lowry was re-assigned to the Broncos for the 2011-12 season to continue to develop his game.

“I know it’s my foot speed and my strength, “ said Lowry. “Those are the areas that I need to work on if I’m going to make the jump to the next level. It’s constant work everyday. I think as I get a little bigger and a little stronger that it’s going to start to come.
