Carter Rowney (born May 10, 1989) is a Canadian professional ice hockey forward currently playing for the Anaheim Ducks of the National Hockey League (NHL). Rowney has previously played in the NHL for the Pittsburgh Penguins.
Having not been selected in any NHL Entry Draft, Rowney attended the University of North Dakota, where he majored in managerial finance. He played collegiate hockey for North Dakota's ice hockey team in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association (WCHA) from 2009 to 2013. In 2010–11 and 2011–12, Rowney was named to the All-WCHA Academic Team. On September 18, 2012, North Dakota suspended Rowney (along with teammates Andrew MacWilliam, Corban Knight and Danny Kristo) for the opening game of the 2012–13 season because of a violation of team rules that occurred during a team party.
On April 9, 2013, Rowney signed an amateur tryout agreement with the Abbotsford Heat of the American Hockey League (AHL). On October 3, 2013, Rowney signed an AHL contract with the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins. He re-signed with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on July 24, 2014, on another one-year AHL contract.
On March 9, 2016, after three seasons playing with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton and the Wheeling Nailers of the ECHL, Rowney signed his first NHL contract, a two-year, two-way contract with the Pittsburgh Penguins worth an average annual value of $612,500. He was named the AHL Player of the Month for March 2016, recording 17 points in 12 games for Wilkes-Barre/Scranton.
Rowney made his NHL debut on January 31, 2017, in Pittsburgh's game against the Nashville Predators. On February 4, Rowney recorded his first NHL point, assisting on a Kris Letang goal against the St. Louis Blues. On March 17, 2017, Rowney scored his first NHL goal, against New Jersey Devils goaltender Keith Kinkaid in a 6–4 Penguins win. On June 11, 2017, after a 2–0 shutout victory over Nashville, Rowney won his first Stanley Cup with the Penguins.
In the 2017–18 season, Rowney was injured on October 21, 2017, suffering a broken hand after blocking a shot against the Tampa Bay Lightning. He returned to the line-up on November 24 after missing 14 games. He was injured again on January 2, suffering an upper-body injury during a game against the Philadelphia Flyers. He returned to game action on February 2, missing 11 games.
