Oilers head scout on Madison Bowey

Edmonton Oilers head scout Stu MacGregor was one of several scouts at the Kelowna Rockets game last night against Prince George. I spoke to MacGregor about Madison Bowey, the highest rated Rocket heading into the 2013 NHL Draft.

"I saw Madison this summer at the Canadian Under 18 camp. This is the first game seeing him in Kelowna. We had some interest in him following him last year and seeing like he had some tools that would make him a prospect. Obviously at the Under 18 camp he showed that and was able to make that team and go to the Ivan Hlicka. He is one of the guys we will be following certainly through the year."

What does Bowey need to work on?
"Again it's consistency. I like his size. I like how hard he works.  I think everyone can become a better skater. When he keeps his game within himself and doesn't do too much....the best way to impress the coach is to be real simple, real good and make smart sharp plays."
