Drayson Bowman (illness) was kept out of Thursday's game against Dallas.

Bowman has four goals and 11 points in 66 games in 2013-14. The 25-year-old isn't expected to ever have much fantasy value.
Apr 4 - 9:42 AM

Drayson Bowman notched the lone goal for Carolina in its 4-1 loss to Montreal on Saturday night.

Bowman scored the game's first goal early in the second period, but that was all the Hurricanes could muster. The 24-year-old is nothing but a depth player with very limited offensive upside. He has four goals and 11 points. Riley Nash and Justin Faulk had the assists.
Feb 8 - 8:48 PM

Drayson Bowman had an assist in Carolina's 2-1 loss on Tuesday.

Bowman now has three goals and 10 points in 48 games this season. He's already set a new career-high in terms of games played and he's likely to beat his personal single-season record of 13 points as well.
Feb 5 - 9:29 AM

Drayson Bowman had a couple of helpers Saturday.

Bowman returned to action on Thursday after missing five games with a lower body injury. The two point effort only gives him six assists and nine points in 44 games so he really has no fantasy value.
Jan 26 - 6:32 AM

Drayson Bowman (lower body) returned to action on Thursday January 23.

Bowman was sidelined for five games due to the injury. He had one hit in 13:12 minutes of ice time in Carolina's 5-3 victory.
Jan 24 - 2:19 AM

Drayson Bowman has sustained a lower-body injury.

Bowman has three goals and four assists in 42 contests this season. His status is being referred to as day-to-day.
Jan 14 - 2:17 PM

Drayson Bowman picked up an assist in Carolina's 4-1 loss to Boston on Monday.

Bowman has two goals and four points in 21 games this season. He's a bottom-six forward that doesn't spend much time in the sin bin and consequently has no fantasy value in standard leagues.

Drayson Bowman scored once for the Carolina Hurricanes in their 3-2 shootout win over Anaheim Friday.

It was only his second goal of the season as Bowman now has three points in 19 games. Bowman also fired six shots on goal in the win. The bottom-six forward has little fantasy value unless he gets moved up to the top line alongside Eric Staal and Alexander Semin and that is highly unlikely barring a lot of injuries.

Drayson Bowman will play alongside Eric Staal and Alexander Semin in Wednesday's preseason game.

This is a great opportunity for Bowman to show what he can do, but we don't anticipate him securing a top-six spot or contributing much offensively in 2013-14. That being said, he could spend the entire season with Carolina. He's participated in 106 career NHL games and at the age of 24, he's entering a make-or-break portion of his career. The label of prospect is fading and if he doesn't firmly establish himself as an NHLer within the next few seasons, his best window of opportunity will be gone.

Drayson Bowman thinks he can contribute more offensively if given the opportunity and he supported that claim in Sunday's scrimmage.

He recorded a power-play goal and an assist after being placed alongside Eric Staal and Alexander Semin due to Jiri Tlusty's injury. Bowman wants to secure a roster spot with the Hurricanes, where he has 21 points in 106 outings, but he'll have to be much more consistent than that if he wants to avoid being shuffled between the NHL and the AHL again this campaign.

Coach Kirk Muller said Drayson Bowman (upper body) will probably be sidelined for the remainder of the season.

The Canes have nine game left on their 2013 schedule, including Thursday night's contest. Bowman has five points in 37 games with Carolina this campaign.
Thu, Apr 11, 2013 01:42:00 PM

Drayson Bowman (upper body) was hurt in Tuesday's loss to Pittsburgh.

He finished Tuesday's loss to the Penguins with just 7:20 of ice time. Bowman scored his third goal of the season in Monday's defeat against Boston. Coach Kirk Muller didn't update Bowman's status following the game, so consider him day-to-day for now.
Wed, Apr 10, 2013 10:04:00 AM

Drayson Bowman skated with Eric Staal and Alexander Semin on Monday at practice.

Coach Kirk Muller likes the way Bowman utilizes his size and speed. He recorded five shots during his 9:30 of ice time in Carolina's 5-1 loss to Florida on Saturday. Bowman played mostly on the fourth line in the contest and he was on the ice when Patrick Dwyer scored the team's lone goal. "Hopefully I'll be able to skate and open up some things for them," Bowman said of his promotion. "Then get out on the forecheck and hunt that puck down."
Tue, Jan 22, 2013 09:08:00 AM

Drayson Bowman seized the league-lead with his 11th goal for Charlotte in its 5-2 victory versus Norfolk on Wednesday night.

Bowman has played 69 games at the NHL levels across a few years, so he's just in the AHL for now -- and really finding his scoring touch. Perhaps he can parlay this momentum into the NHL season, that is, if there is one. Zach Boychuk also had an assist in the win.
