Jared Cowen played 27:59 in Ottawa's 2-1 shootout loss to Winnipeg on Saturday.

"The more he plays, the more confidence he gets," said head coach Paul MacLean. "He’s keeping the game simple, and he’s being very consistent in finding the first pass and just playing his guy and being physical when he does it." Cowen may be eating up more minutes, but he is irrelevant in standard fantasy leagues.
Nov 9 - 11:30 AM

Coach Paul MacLean didn't confirm his lineup for Tuesday's game versus Columbus, but it's believed that Jared Cowen will return from the press box.

If he does get the nod to play then Patrick Wiercioch or Eric Gryba will sit. Cowen has been a healthy scratch for the past five games and he knows what he has to do should he get the opportunity to play. "I think I know, and I've been told, just stay simple and be miserable to play against, and be a big guy, so that's what I'm after," Cowen said Monday. "Get some success and build off that. Just start small."

Jared Cowen will probably be a healthy scratch for a second straight game Thursday.

"I've just got to be better," said Cowen. "I need a better start and better consistency." Coach Paul MacLean has seven defenders on his roster and he wants the best six to play. Cowen will get a chance to return and when he does he will have to impress and improve his defensive play.

He was relegated to the bench on Saturday after he committed a turnover that led to Brett Connolly's game-tying goal with 7:26 left in a 3-2 shootout win over Tampa Bay. A decision hasn't been made yet, but Patrick Wiercioch might see his first action of the season in Cowen's place.
