A former Prince Albert Raiders captain was inducted into the University of Manitoba Bisons Hockey Hall of Fame in Winnipeg on Wednesday night. 

Bob Lowes, the eleventh captain in Raiders history back in the 1981-82 season, will have a plaque enshrining him in the Bisons' home rink of the Max Bell centre. 

Lowes was with his hometown Raiders for three years in the team’s SJHL days from 1979-82. They won the SJHL and Anavet Cup titles in all three of those years, as well as the Centennial Cup in the final two.

Lowes was also on the Raiders’ inaugural WHL season in 1982-83 before getting traded to the Regina Pats later that year.

He served as the Bison’s assistant coach in the 1987-88 season while he missed the year with a back injury, which helped form a strong bond with Wayne Fleming, the team’s head coach and man that recruited Lowes.

Lowes went on to coach the Nipawin Hawks in 1989-1991 and nine years with the Brandon Wheat Kings from 1992-2001 and the Regina Pats from 2001-04. Lowes then turned to scouting in 2005, starting with the Wheat Kings and the Ottawa Senators. He’s now the assistant director of player personnel for the Vegas Golden Knights.
