During the 2012–13 season he played with Team Canada to win gold medals at both the 2012 Ivan Hlinka Memorial Tournament and the 2013 IIHF World U18 Championships. Leading up to the 2013 NHL Entry Draft, Bowey was rated as a top prospect. Bowey won the Stanley Cup in 2018 with the Capitals.
Bowey was selected by the Kelowna Rockets in the second round, 23rd overall, in the 2010 WHL Bantam Draft. He appeared in 3 games at the end of Kelowna's 2010–11 WHL season recording one assist. The next year he emerged as a mainstay on the Rockets' blue-line, putting up 8 goals and 21 points in 57 games with a +3 rating and 39 PIM. He also scored a goal in 4 games in Kelowna's first round sweep at the hands of the Portland Winterhawks. Bowey also represented Team Canada West at the 2012 World U-17 Hockey Challenge, recording a goal in 5 games. During the 2012–13 WHL season Bowey emerged as one of Kelowna's most valuable defenders, scoring 12 goals and 30 points in 69 games with a +41 rating. His plus-minus rating that season was good for thirteenth amongst WHL players that season and he solidified his status as a major NHL prospect for the 2013 NHL Entry Draft. He helped lead the Rockets to a division title and a seven-game first round post-season victory over the Seattle Thunderbirds before being defeated by the arch rival Kamloops Blazers in the second round. Bowey recorded 4 assists in 11 total playoff games.
On October 14, 2017, Bowey was recalled from the Hershey Bears to replace Matt Niskanen who was placed on injured reserve. On October 26, 2017, he earned his first NHL point on an assist for Chandler Stephenson's first NHL goal in a 6–2 loss against the Vancouver Canucks. On June 7, 2018, Bowey won his first Stanley Cup with the Washington Capitals after defeating the Vegas Golden Knights in five games to capture the first Stanley Cup in the history of their franchise.
In the following 2018–19 season, Bowey made the opening night roster for the first time in his career. On December 29, in a 3–2 win over the Ottawa Senators, both Bowey and fellow rookie defenseman Tyler Lewington recorded their first NHL goals, making the two players the first defensemen in Capitals history to score their first NHL goals in the same game. Bowey recorded six points in 33 games for the Capitals.
Detroit Red WingsEdit
On February 22, 2019, the Capitals traded Bowey to the Detroit Red Wings, along with a second-round pick in the 2020 NHL Entry Draft, in exchange for Nick Jensen, and a fifth-round pick in the 2019 NHL Entry Draft.
