Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Jason Bowen
Left-winger Jason Bowen played one full season in the NHL but was chiefly a farmhand for two different franchises in the 1990s. Standing 6'4", his strength was playing aggressively in his own end and clearing the puck out of harm's way.

Born in Port Alice, B.C., Bowen spent four years with the4 Tri-City Americans of the WHL. He was chosen 15th overall by the Philadelphia Flyers in 1992 then returned for one last year of junior. Bowen was recalled for seven games after the 1992-93 junior season ended and was fairly impressive.

The burly rearguard appeared to find his niche with the club when he played 56 games in 1993-94 and registered a solid +12 plus/minus rating. Bowen was unable to keep his place on the roster and ended up spending most of the next three seasons in the AHL. A trade to the Edmonton Oilers at the start of the 1997-98 season did not alter Bowen's circumstances. He spent most of the next three years in the minors but did represent Canada at the World Championships.
