(ISN) – A good portion of the gold-medal winning Canadian blueline will return to Kelowna this week and re-join the Rockets after Madison Bowey and Josh Morrissey celebrated a gold medal championship on Monday night at the World Junior Hockey Championships.
The defence partners, who have yet to skate together on the Rockets blueline, had a great tournament playing together with Team Canada, laying out huge hits and crisp passes throughout the event.
Bowey, the Rockets captain, was his dynamic self on the world stage with spectacular plays and a solid game at both ends of the ice, while Morrissey could have been Team Canada’s best all around defenceman, witness his assist in the gold medal game, as well as a very physical tournament.
As for Hamilton, the Rockets GM adds a World Junior gold medal to his resume in his second season with the World Junior management committee.
Bowey and Morrissey are expected to be back in the line-up on Saturday night at Prospera Place when the Rockets host the Medicine Hat Tigers.
