Bowtell is happy to return to the Sea Wolves saying, "Mississippi is my second home. I'm looking forward to having a chance at winning another Kelly Cup Championship for the Sea Wolves. Coach Woods was also a factor in my decision. He knows hockey and he's an excellent motivator."

Coach Bob Woods said, "Cody is a leader and fierce competitor. Those are definitely key ingredients for our team to be successful. I know the kind of player and energy Bowtell brings to the rink. Sea Wolves' fans love him and I look for Cody to be an asset to the team."

The veteran played four seasons with the Sea Wolves and was a member of the 1998-99 ECHL Kelly Cup Championship team. During the 2000-01 season, Bowtell was named the Sea Wolves Most Valuable Player and represented Mississippi at the East Coast Hockey League All-Star game.

The Sea Wolves open the season at Baton Rouge on October 12. The home opener is set for the following day against instate rival Jackson at 5:05 p.m. in the Mississippi Coast Coliseum.
