Centre Eddie Lowrey played three years in the NHL during its formative years beginning in 1917-18. He was a fine checker who could contribute on offense as well.
Born in Manotick, Ontario, Lowrey was a reliable performer for five years in the NHA between 1912 and 1917. His travels took him to the Ottawa Senators, Toronto Ontarios, Toronto Blueshirts and Montreal Canadiens. After scoring three goals for the Senators in 1916-17, Lowrey remained with the team when it helped found the National Hockey League.
Lowrey worked two years as a solid defensive forward for the Senators before spending the 1919-20 season as coach of the senior Ottawa Munitions club. In December, 1920 he signed as a free agent with the Hamilton Tigers and played four more NHL games that year. He spent his last seven games as a pro with the WCHL's Regina Capitals in 1921-22 before taking on the head coaching position at the University of Ottawa.
