Jets prospect Lowry named WHL player of the year

Adam Lowry’s career progression arrow has gone from a steady climb to a sharp vertical line racing straight up.

The Winnipeg Jets prospect was named Wednesday as the Western Hockey League Player of the Year for the 2012-13 season. A third-round draft pick of the Jets in 2011, Lowry is coming off a season in which he potted 45 goals and added 43 assists in 72 games with the Swift Current Broncos, first on his club and 12th in the WHL. The 20-year-old centre/winger finished the season with the Jets’ AHL affiliate, the St. John’s IceCaps, and officially signed a pro contract with the organization on April 16th.
