Canadiens sign Bowman to deal

The Montreal Canadiens, parent club of the AHL’s Hamilton Bulldogs, have agreed to terms with forward Drayson Bowman on a one-year, two-way contract for the 2014-15 season.

Bowman spent the 2013-14 season with the NHL’s Carolina Hurricanes. In 70 games with Carolina, the 25-year-old recorded 12 points (four goals, eight assists) and 16 penalty minutes.

The Grand Rapids, Mich., native spent the last five seasons in the Hurricanes organization. In 176 career regular-season NHL games with Carolina, the 6-foot, 195-pound forward has recorded 33 points (15 goals, 18 assists) and 53 penalty minutes. In 186 career regular-season AHL games with the Albany River Rats and Charlotte Checkers, he has recorded 110 points (56 goals, 54 assists) and 148 penalty minutes.

Bowman was originally selected by the Hurricanes in the third round (72nd overall) in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft. He was invited to the Canadiens’ 2014 training camp on a professional tryout.
