Keegan Lowe (born March 29, 1993 in Greenwich , Connecticut ) is an American - Canadian ice hockey player who has been under contract with the Edmonton Oilers of the National Hockey League since July 2017 and also for their farm team , the Bakersfield Condors , in the American Hockey League is used.
Keegan Lowe was born in Greenwich when his father Kevin Lowe was active for the New York Rangers , but the family returned to Edmonton a little later , where his father was henceforth an official for the Oilers . Keegan Lowe ran there from the 2009/10 season for the Edmonton Oil Kings in the Western Hockey League (WHL), who had selected him in the 2008 Bantam Draft of the WHL in 114th position. After two years in which he had established in the Oil Kings as defensive-oriented defense, it took into account the Carolina Hurricanes in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft at the 73rd place. For now, however, he returned for two more seasons in the WHL, where he won the playoffs for the Ed Chynoweth Cup with the team in the 2011/12 season. The following year, the Oil Kings again made it to the finals, but they were defeated by the Portland Winterhawks , while Lowe was personally appointed to the Second All-Star Team of the Eastern Conference.
In March 2013, the Hurricanes had given Lowe an entry-level contract , so that he was used in their organization at the start of the 2013/14 season. However, the Canes used him primarily with their farm team , the Charlotte Checkers , in the American Hockey League (AHL), so over the next three and a half years he played only two games for Carolina in the National Hockey League (NHL). As a result, the defender was given to the Canadiens de Montréal in exchange for Philip Samuelsson in February 2017 , ended the season with their AHL farm team, the St. John's IceCaps , and subsequently received no further contract in Montréal.
As a result, Lowe joined the Edmonton Oilers as a free agent in July 2017 , with whom he signed a one-year contract that was extended for two seasons in June 2018. Primarily he is still used in the AHL, with the Bakersfield Condors .
