While the Capitals’ season may be over, their AHL team, the Hershey Bears, are currently on the verge of advancing to the AHL’s Eastern Comference Finals. After losing to the Toronto Marlies last night, the Chocolate and White now hold a 3-1 series lead. However, the game may not be the only thing the Bears have lost. Madison Bowey, the top defensive prospect in the Capitals organization, was given a five-minute major and game misconduct for a high hit on Toronto’s Kasperi Kapanen. According to NBC Sports, Bowey faces discipline for more than just the hit: he could also be reprimanded for using a homophobic slur towards the on-ice official escorting him off the ice.

Bowey enjoyed a nice rookie season in Hershey, recording four goals and 25 assists in 70 games for the Bears. Drafted by the Capitals in the second round (53rd overall) of the 2013 NHL Entry Draft, Bowey is a physical, two-way blueliner with tremendous upside. Caps General Manager Brian MacLellan stated in his end of season press conference he sees Bowey getting some NHL action next season.
