Ralph "Scotty" Bowman (June 20, 1911, in Winnipeg, Manitoba – October 17, 1990) was a professional ice hockey defenceman who played 7 seasons in the National Hockey League for the Ottawa Senators, St. Louis Eagles and Detroit Red Wings.

Bowman started out with the junior Niagara Falls Cataracts of the Ontario Hockey Association from 1930-33. He then turned pro with the Ottawa Senators in 1933-34.

He followed the team as it transferred to St. Louis in 1934. On November 13, 1934 Bowman, then playing for the St. Louis Eagles, scored the first penalty shot goal in NHL history. In the middle of that season, he was traded to the Detroit Red Wings.

Bowman played four full seasons and parts of two others for the Wings. They won the Stanley Cup in 1935-36 and 1936-37.

Partway into the 1939-40 season Bowman was sent down to the Indianapolis Capitals of the International-American Hockey League. He spent the rest of his career in that league, retiring after the 1942-43 season.

In 274 NHL games, Bowman scored 8 goals and 25 assists.
