Jared Cowen will return to the Senators' blue line in Saturday's tilt match with Philadelphia.
Through 16 games this season Cowen has posted three points, six PIMs, 26 blocks, and 44 hits. Not enough to warrant a slot on your squad, unfortunately. But for you reverse leaguers, someone to keep an eye on for a one-night filler. Nov 21 - 6:38 PM

Jared Cowen (foot) took part in Wednesday's practice.

He has missed the past two games due to a bruised foot. Cowen could be back in the fold Thursday if he gets clearance.

Jared Cowen did not practice Friday (undisclosed) and will not suit up in Saturday afternoon's game against the Rangers.

Although Cowen is playing better this season than last, he has no fantasy value so his absence from the Ottawa lineup has little fantasy impact. Patrick Wiercioch will dress in Cowen's place.

Jared Cowen likes the way he has started the 2015-16 campaign.

"I'm happy with the way I've been playing. And I feel better physically and that helps," he said. "That's kind of the whole thing. It takes a lot off your mind. when I play physical, I feel better. More than that, it means you're skating well, thinking the game right." He has racked up 20 hits in six games, which puts him among the league leaders for defensemen. Cowen logged a season-high 22:10 of ice time last Saturday against Nashville, which shows that he is getting back into the good graces of coach Dave Cameron.

Jared Cowen is slated to be among Ottawa's top-six defenders to start the season.

"I've said all along, if he gets healthy, and with his size, if he just accepts what he is, a big strong guy, with a bit of a (mean) streak," GM Bryan Murray said. "He can defend pretty well, use his stick a bit better, and then with the puck, keep it simple." The organization still has faith in him, but he quickly fell out of favor with his coaches last season. Chris Wideman, who is expected to claim the seventh defender spot, could push Cowen for playing time this year.

Jared Cowen has been skating with Mike Kostka at training camp, but he doesn't view it as a demotion.

"I like playing with Mike (Kostka), he's a similar guy (to me), he's easy to play with," Cowen said. "I don't really care, to be honest. They can keep playing me with him if they want. I don't really look too far into the future." Even though it's early, it looks like Chris Wideman could be ahead of Cowen on the Senators' depth chart based on the defense combinations in practices and preseason games. Cowen will have to compete extra hard to earn his spot in the lineup back after he lost it last season.

Jared Cowen says he feels good after having surgery in April to repair an abdominal tear in his oblique muscle.

"It's good. The rehab was easy. There's still scar tissue so sometimes I feel a yank but that's kind of like what I was feeling for the last (18 months) but it's not the same. It's fine. Once I warm-up it goes away so it's actually feels really good," said Cowen. "I think I got on the ice in Saskatoon in the last week of July and I've been skating for the most part with my skating coach back home. I've skated with different guys a few times here and there, but mostly I've just been working on skating and everything feels better than it did last year." Cowen doesn't have much offensive upside, but it's safe to say that the Senators are looking for him to play a bigger role going forward.

The Ottawa Senators are hoping to see more progression from Jared Cowen next season.

Ottawa traded Eric Gryba to Edmonton so that Cowen could have a regular spot on the blue line. "It's a chance for Eric (Gryba) to go and get a chance to play a prominent role," said GM Bryan Murray after the draft. "It allows us to play Jared Cowen on a regular basis and it gets us down to seven defensemen. Murray added: "Cowen had the injury at the end and I believe he's going to be a really good defenceman in the league. Opening the door for him to get that spot was a big part of it."

Jared Cowen, Colin Greening, and David Legwand will be scratched for Game Five on Friday night against on Friday night.

Unfortunately, there isn't much talent here to recommend should Ottawa live to fight another day. Legwand, the 34 year old veteran, had easily his worst career offensive season despite playing 80 regular season games and three playoff games. Greening played just 26 games. And Cowen saw just 54 games during his worst of three NHL seasons.

Jared Cowen doesn't appear to be hopeful that he'll play during the postseason.

"I want to play hockey, but I don't think that's going to happen right now," he said. "I care about the playoffs. I want to play, but you can't come in here every day with the mindset of a guy that's going to play. It's going to burn me out or drive me crazy." His only chance of getting back into the lineup for the first time since Mar. 29 will probably be if an injury occurs.
Apr 21 - 9:40 AM

Defenseman Jared Cowen will join forward teammates Colin Greening, Matt Puempel, and Zack Smith in the stands for Game Three against Montreal on Sunday night.

The only lineup changes Coach Cameron is making for the game is subbing forward Chris Neil onto the fourth line for Alex Chiasson, and Craig Anderson for Andrew Hammond in goal. As talented and as valuable as Cowen, Puempel, and Smith may be fantasy-wise, their seats in the doghouse have become quite cozy it seems.
Apr 19 - 6:19 PM

Jared Cowen and Colin Greening will be healthy scratches in Thursday's game against the Rangers.

This has been a common occurrence of late. Cowen, 24, has three goals, nine points, a minus-11 rating and 45 penalty minutes in 54 games this season. Greening, 29, has just one goal in 26 games for the Sens in 2014-15.
Apr 9 - 6:48 PM

Jared Cowen and Colin Greening will be scratched once again versus the Pittsburgh Penguins on Tuesday night.

This will mark five straight games in the stands for Cowen, who has posted decent numbers through 54 games this season with nine points, 45 PIMs, 76 blocks, and 159 hits. Greening hwoever has seen just 26 games this season, eliminating any potential fantasy value.
Apr 7 - 6:56 PM

This will be Cowen's fourth straight game in the stands. He's posted nine points, 45 PIMs, 76 blocks, and 159 hits over 54 games this season. Greening meanwhile has seen just 26 games. Neither player has much fantasy value as they cannot seem to get into and stay in the lineup.
