(Sioux City, IA) – The Sioux City Musketeers have made a move before the USHL trade deadline to add another weapon to their roster. Sioux City acquired forward Owen Fowler from Omaha and a Phase-1 8th Round Pick for affiliate Thomas Neu, a 2nd Round Phase-1 2nd Round Pick, and a Phase-2 4th Round Pick.
Fowler racked up 24 points in 31 games with the Lancers this season, but he also plays with an edge as he’s amassed 112 penalty minutes which ranks him 2nd in the USHL.
Musketeers General Manager Andy Johnson was thrilled to land Fowler. “In our discussions as a staff when we evaluated where we are at as a group we felt like if we could add some snarl and bite to our lineup we'd love to do so. Owen's package of grit, desire, and competition go along with his talented offensive stick was something we felt could help elevate our team to the next level as we enter the stretch run of the season," said Johnson.
Fowler will be in the lineup tonight for the Musketeers when they host Lincoln at 7:05.
