Another Lowe in the NHL and this blog belongs to Keegan! As you may have already guessed, Keegan Lowe is long time Oiler, Kevin Lowe. While he was drafted by the Carolina Hurricanes in 2011, he never really gained any traction with the organization and eventually was traded to the Pittsburgh Penguins for Philip Samuelsson, who also is the son of a former NHL star, Ulf.
Today, Keegan plays for the Bakersfield Condors under the Edmonton Oilers organization. It’d be great if Keegan can carry on the Lowe legacy in Edmonton, helping the Oilers to the teams’ next Stanley Cup. Clearly, this year, it won’t be happening as the Oilers are in range of a Top 5 NHL draft pick.
I sent this card to Keegan c/o the Bakersfield Condors in which he signed very quickly, only within 46 days. It is great that NHL players are more willing to sign autographs, even when they do not have to. It definitely helps bring more fans to get engaged, have a chance to make that connection with a player and show their appreciation through fan mail.
