    Maple Leafs' Jared Cowen: Out for roughly 10 days

    Cowen (hip), who was traded from Ottawa to Toronto on Tuesday, is not likely to make his Maple Leafs debut for approximately 10 days, TSN's Mark Masters reports. Cowen was included in a nine-player swap that involved captain Dion Phaneuf landing in Ottawa. It's been a rough year for Cowen as he went under the knife early in the offseason to correct an abdominal tear, battled a lower-body injury and now has an issue with his hip. At 6-foot-5, 230 pounds, Cowen provides size and physicality that the Buds lost by shipping away Phaneuf, and perhaps Toronto's medical staff can treat him to the point where he stays on the ice with consistency - that could be wishful thinking though as Cowen's already missed 15 games this campaign, often acting like a boomerang between game ice and the training room.

    Maple Leafs' Jared Cowen: Traded from Ottawa to Toronto

    Cowen was traded to the Maple Leafs on Tuesday along with Milan Michalek, Colin Greening, Tobias Lindberg and a draft pick in exchange for Dion Phaneuf and several prospects. The ninth overall pick in 2009, Cowen hasn't come remotely close to living up to that lofty status, often serving as a healthy scratch this year. He notched just four assists in 37 games for Ottawa this season, but did rack up 116 hits; the Leafs seemingly value his toughness on the blue line, as he could serve to at least partially replace the physicality they've lost by trading Phaneuf.

    Senators' Jared Cowen: Returning to lineup Tuesday

    Cowen will draw back into the lineup Tuesday night against the Panthers. After sitting out the Sens' last two games as a healthy scratch, Cowen gets to play Tuesday with Cody Ceci (upper body) on the sidelines. The 24-year-old Cowen boasts great size and first-round pedigree, but has thus far been unable to parlay those attributes into much production on NHL ice; he owns only three points in 29 games this year while mostly playing third-pairing minutes.

    Senators' Jared Cowen: Healthy scratch Thursday

    Cowen appears to no longer be dealing with a lower-body issue, but he will serve as a "healthy scratch" Thursday, Don Brennan of the Ottawa Sun reports. Cowen has missed each of the past two contests, but it appears he's now just fallen out of favor with coach Dave Cameron. He'll serve as the seventh defenseman for the club Thursday, but could slot slot back soon enough if he can get back on Cameron's good side.

    Senators' Jared Cowen: Out again Monday

    Cowen (lower body) will miss Monday's game against the Red Wings, Wayne Scanlan of the Ottawa Citizen reports. Cowen was held out of Saturday's contest after suffering a lower-body injury blocking a shot Thursday, and he'll be held out again with the ailment. There's no clear timetable for the defenseman right now, but his next chance to suit back up will come Thursday against the Blue Jackets.

    Senators' Jared Cowen: Out Saturday

    Cowen (lower body) won't play Saturday against the Rangers, Gord Wilson of TSN 1200 reports. Cowen reportedly suffered the injury when blocking a shot in Thursday's game against Vancouver. Patrick Wiercioch, who was a healthy scratch Thursday against the Canucks, is expected to replace Cowen in Ottawa's lineup Saturday against New York.

    Senators' Jared Cowen: Plus one

    Cowen is plus-1 after two regular season games. Cowen continues to be a defensive minded defenseman who can stave off opposing offense and gives fellow teammates a rest without making costly mistakes.

  • Sens' Cowen Fully Recovered From Abdominal Tear

    News: Jared Cowen said last week that he's fully recovered from an April surgery to repair a torn abdominal muscle in his oblique muscle, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.
    Analysis: Jared Cowen noted that the oblique issue had been bothering him for two seasons, but with the procedure finally out of the way, he looks poised to enter the start of training camp at 100 percent health. A former top-four defenseman for the Senators, Cowen will need to prove that playing hurt was the primary reason for the decline in his performance rather than a diminished skill set. Even in previous seasons, the former first-round pick has rarely been a useful fantasy performer outside of the hits category, where he's exceeded the 200 mark on two occasions.
  • Sens' Cowen To Undergo Sports Hernia Surgery

    News: Jared Cowen will undergo surgery to address a sports hernia during the offseason, Chris Stevenson of TSN 1200 reports.
    Analysis: GM Bryan Murray said he doesn't anticipate that the procedure will delay Jared Cowen's availability during training camp. Cowen became a forgotten man by the Senators in the second half of the season, appearing in just 15 games after the All-Star break and in none of the Senators' six posteason contests. He'll have to battle for a regular role on the Sens' third defensive pairing during camp.
  • Sens' Cowen Healthy, But Not Playing

    News: Jared Cowen has recovered from his illness, but appears to be out of the lineup Tuesday against the Bruins, Wayne Scanlan of the Ottawa Citizen reports.
    Analysis: Timing hasn't been Jared Cowen's forte of late, as he was prepared to return from a three-game suspension last week before the illness set in. With the Senators rolling to six wins while Cowen has been out the last seven games, coach Dave Cameron has been resistant to changing his lineup, leaving the blueliner as a healthy scratch. He'll probably have to wait for the team to hit a slump before getting a chance to play again.
