Adam Lowry has been a Winnipeg Jets since 2011, and he was drafted 67th overall by the Jets. Being named the captain, Lowry is the third captain since the Jets relocated from Atlanta to Winnipeg. Andrew Ladd was the team’s captain from 2011 until 2016, and Blake Wheeler was captain until the 2022-23 season.
Adam Lowry follows in the footsteps of his father, Dave Lowry, who served as captain of the Calgary Flames during the end of his career. Dave Lowry served as a longtime assistant coach in Winnipeg and was the interim head coach after Paul Maurice resigned mid-season. Dave is now serving as an assistant coach of the Seattle Kraken.
Adam Lowry plans to reach out to a few people, some of whom are currently with the New York Rangers, for advice. Since Lowry’s entry into the NHL, he’s played 621 games, scoring 93 goals and 111 assists, as well as 335 penalty minutes. Lowry will have Josh Morrissey and Mark Scheifele serving as alternate captains for the 2023-24 season.
