Shane Bowers speaks

Shane Bowers hasn’t said a whole lot since being drafted by Saint John earlier this summer.

But that certainly changed on Tuesday. The Chronicle Herald spoke to Bowers, who talked quite openly about his plans for the future.

Here’s a piece of what Bowers said:

"Yeah, for sure, the plan is still to head back to Waterloo for next season,” Bowers said this week. “I’m definitely exploring the college route, but that being said, whatever happens after next season with the (NHL) draft or whatever, who knows what could happen. I could easily end up back in major junior, but for now, I’m playing for Waterloo and (staying eligible for) the college route.”

The full story can be read on the Chronicle Herald website.

As many have speculated, it appears as though Bowers is set to play in Waterloo this season – but after that is where things get interesting. Especially if the Halifax native is taken high in the 2017 NHL Draft, the Sea Dogs could be a more appropriate development spot.

Bowers and Sea Dogs forward Joe Veleno were both named to Team Canada’s Ivan Hlinka roster on Tuesday. The two were roommates at Hockey Canada’s development camp in Calgary this past week.
