April 18, 2013, Calgary, AB (ISN) – The Western Hockey League today announced the WHL Eastern Conference finalist for the 2012-13 WHL Player of the Year. The two finalists for WHL Player of the Year are determined through voting by General Managers, coaches, broadcast and media representatives of all WHL Member Clubs.

In the WHL’s Eastern Conference, which includes the East and Central Divisions, the Player of the Year Nominee is forward Adam Lowry of the Swift Current Broncos.

Lowry enjoyed a strong season for the Swift Current Broncos, appearing in all 72 games while scoring a team-leading 45 goals and 43 assists for 88 points to go with a +18 rating and 102 penalty minutes. Lowry’s considerable contributions to the Broncos helped the Club make the WHL playoffs for the first time since the 2009-10 season.

Lowry, a Calgary, AB, finished sixth among all WHL players in goals and finished 12th in WHL scoring with 88 points. In addition, Lowry finished tied for eighth among all WHL players with 14 power play goals and tied for second with six shorthanded goals. His eight game-winning goals also tied him for second among WHL players in that category. Lowry displayed remarkable consistency throughout the 2012-13 WHL season, going more than two games without recording a point only three times all season while enjoying a season-best 21-game point streak and an eight-game goal streak. His efforts saw him named the Husky WHL Player of the Month for December. Lowry’s importance to the Broncos during the 2012-13 season cannot be understated as he had a hand in nearly 48% of his team’s entire offensive output.

Chosen by the Broncos in the 4th round, 78th overall, of the 2008 WHL Bantam Draft, Lowry has played four seasons in the WHL, scoring 90 goals and 204 points in 235 regular-season games. Lowry was drafted by the Winnipeg Jets in the 3rd round, 67th overall, in the 2011 NHL Draft.

The WHL Western Conference finalist for the 2012-13 WHL Player of the Year will be announced on Thursday, April 18. The recipients of all WHL individual awards will be announced at the 2013 WHL Awards Luncheon, which will be held in Calgary, Alberta, on Wednesday, May 1, 2013.
