A surprised Brad Bowles was just sitting on the couch at home a couple weeks ago when he received a call from the Calgary Flames organization inviting him to camp. It wasn’t something the soon to be 21 year old was expecting.
Bowles served as the Terriers’ Captain this past season and led the league in scoring with 45 goals and 57 assists in 60 games. Bowles was also recognized as the most valuable player at this year’s Western Canada Cup as well as receiving a nomination for CJHL Top Forward of the year.
“It wasn’t something I was expecting, but I’m happy to get the opportunity. It’s going to be a great experience for me and definitely a week I won’t forget,” said Bowles.
When asked what if any expectations he had for the week Bowles had this to say. “I just want to go in there and work hard and have a good camp. You never know what could happen and this is something I don’t want to take for granted.”
Bowles reported to camp yesterday and will be there until the 7th. Today they start with physical testing and take to the ice Tuesday through Thursday.
