After his senior year, in which he was named to the East First All-American Team, Mowers was signed as a free agent by the Nashville Predators on August 1, 1998.

Mowers was assigned to affiliate, the Grand Rapids Griffins for the 2002–03 season and scored 81 points in 78 games, to earn a spot in the AHL All-Star Second Team. In the following 2003–04 season, Mowers started to year with the Griffins before he was recalled by the Red Wings on November 19, 2003. Mowers impressed in a checking line role and established a regular place in the team. Mowers suffered a foot injury towards to the end of the season and missed the playoffs.

During the 2004 NHL Lockout, Mowers went abroad to play with the Malmo Redhawks of the SEL and Swiss team Fribourg-Gotteron. Mowers returned to the Red Wings upon the 2005–06 season and was used as a reserve forward, playing in 46 games.

On July 6, 2006, Mowers signed a two-year contract with the Boston Bruins, following former Red Wings head coach Dave Lewis. Mowers played in a career high 78 games in the 2006–07 season and posted 17 points.

Prior to the 2007–08 season, on September 24, 2007, Mowers was traded by the Bruins to the Anaheim Ducks for Brett Skinner and Nathan Saunders.[1] Mark played sparingly in only 17 games with the Ducks and accepted a loan to SC Bern of the NLA for the remainder of the season on November 30, 2007.
