Top Prospect Signings (Mar 29)
It's a busy time for all of these college prospects getting locked up and the Colorado Avalanche have joined the fun, locking up one of their top prospects, a 2017 1st round selection, the 28th overall pick by the Senators, forward Shane Bowers. Bowers was acquired by the Avalanche in the deal that sent Matt Duchene to Ottawa. The 19-year old centre already has some pretty good size and reportedly impressed at the Avalanche's prospect camp last summer and now that he has decided to turn pro, he will look to make his mark on a team that is still trying to cement its place in the playoff hunt every year.
Bowers only had okay numbers at Boston University in his NCAA career and he did represent Canada at the World Juniors this past holiday season, so there is some upside to his game. It will be very interesting to see where he fits in.
