Harvard rising senior Henry Bowlby is the latest player to leave the Crimson in the wake of the Ivy League’s decision to cancel athletics until at least January 1st of this year. On Wednesday, it was announced that Bowlby had signed a two-year contract as a free agent with the Florida Panthers.
Bowlby scored 16 points for Harvard last season with eight goals and eight assists, with all of his points coming at even strength. Bowlby was effective at using his combination of speed and physicality on the left wing of Harvard’s second/third line throughout the season to become a very good two-way winger.
Bowlby is the third key player from last year’s very good Harvard team that has officially announced an early departure since the Ivy League decision, joining top defenseman Jack Rathbone and the team’s second-leading scorer, Jack Drury.
