“The program is excited to have Hannah back,” said Adrian head coach Chad Davis in a statement. “She is a person that can help get us to the next level with her passion, dedication and experience with our program.”
McGowan finished her career as a Bulldog tied for second in game-winning goals (10), second in shots on goal (390), third in career points (100), third in assists (53), third in plus/minus (55), fourth in goals (47), and fifth in power-play goal (13). She remains in the top 10 for the Bulldogs in all of those categories.
“Having the opportunity to come back to the program where my career started is an honor,” McGowan added. “I look forward to coming back and helping lead the team to another successful season and continue the traditions that the program has built in its last ten seasons.”
The 2015 Adrian grad spent one season as a member of the NWHL’s Buffalo Beauts in 2015-16 before playing last season overseas in Austria’s EWHL league for the Neuberg Highlanders.
Along with collegiate and professional play, McGowan has been a lead instructor at the Vigilante Ice Hockey Camps in Detroit since 2010.
McGowan earned her bachelor of business administration in sports management degree in May of 2015.
