Left-winger Jason Bowen played one full season in the NHL but was chiefly a farmhand for two different franchises in the 1990s. Standing 6'4", his strength was playing aggressively in his own end and clearing the puck out of harm's way. He was also not afraid to drop his gloves.

The burly rearguard appeared to find his niche with the club when he played 56 games in 1993-94 and registered a solid +12 plus/minus rating. Bowen was unable to keep his place on the roster and ended up spending most of the next three seasons in the AHL. A trade to the Edmonton Oilers at the start of the 1997-98 season did not alter Bowen's circumstances. He spent most of the next three years in the minors but did represent Canada at the World Championships.

Last 6 seasons of his career he spent playing in Great Britain, eventually hanging his skates in the age of 33 and becoming a chef in a restaurant.

I always loved cooking, and everybody I knew could always cook and make the best ever dish, Jason Bowen 2016
I had always thrown parties for the team, cooking for them after the hockey, Jason Bowen 2016
