Former Stanley Cup Champ To Continue Career Overseas

A six-year NHL veteran and member of the 2017 Stanley Cup-winning Pittsburgh Penguins has taken his talents overseas to Germany. Carter Rowney has elected to continue his career with Lowen Frankfurt.

Rowney has signed a three-year extension with the German side, after the most successful professional season of his career there last year, when he led the team with 58 points in 55 games.  

Rowney last played in the NHL in the 2021-22 season for the Detroit Red Wings, registering six points in 26 games. The Canadian forward, now 34, began his career with the Penguins, playing a total of 71 games for them as a bottom-six winger, and got into 20 playoff games in 2017, netting three points in just over 12 minutes of ice time per contest. He has a Stanley Cup ring to show for it. 

He then played three seasons with the Anaheim Ducks before moving to Detroit for one year. He played a total of 249 NHL games, recording 24 goals and 63 points. 

He'll likely complete his pro hockey story in Germany, as he'll be 37 at the conclusion of his newly-signed deal.
