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 would have otherwise lost by shipping away Phaneuf, but perhaps Toronto's medical staff can treat him to the point where he stays on the ice with consistency - still, that could be wishful thinking as Cowen's already missed 15 games this campaign, often acting like a boomerang between game ice and the training room.
