Top 25 Under 25: Number 11 Adam Lowry

Is this what the Jets can expect from their rightful fourth line centre from now on?

Adam Lowry is what he is meant to be for the Winnipeg Jets. He is a fine depth centre for the Jets and does well when he is on the fourth line. He can screen the goalie on the power play and sometimes fill in higher in the lineup.

What Lowry is not is a scoring player or really a player with much scoring potential. He is a legit NHL player and has shown himself well on the fourth line. He is on the precipice of being in the top 10 because he is a legit NHLer, which is hard to achieve, but he is not one of the Jets with the highest potential.

Tim: Adam Lowry has developed well as an NHLer. He isn't a star, but he is the kind of depth player that a team can win with. That being said, he's not an ideal third liner and to date, he's been incapable of carrying a line into positive results. The line of Lowry, Matthias and Armia were given a ton of credit for their grinding style, but they were ineffective and over-played on net. I've said it in the past, and I still believe it. The Jets will be ready to contend when Lowry is on the 4th line.

Brian: I used to LOVE Adam Lowry, but the way that the coaches favor him has really soured my feelings on him. I still think he's a really damn good fourth liner, but I don't want to see him anywhere else in the lineup. Especially when we have talented guys like tomorrow's player who haven't gotten a fair shake.

Andy: Lowry is loved by the coaches. As last season wore on, his role with the team shifted. The third line center was part of a great possession line with Matthias and Armia, and he gained some net front presence on the power play. It would seem that a brief stint with the Moose in the '15-'16 season did him some good.
