Jared Cowen will fill in for Marc Methot who was made a late scratch on Sunday night.

No word on the reasoning for Methot's late scratch but Cowen gets to play his 20th game of the season. He has just five points.

Jared Cowen may be a healthy scratch again on Sunday.

Cowen has been a healthy scratch in back-to-back games. The Sens ninth overall pick in 2009 has struggled with consistency in his young career. "He hasn’t been at the calibre we’ve needed him to be," said Senators head coach Paul MacLean. "We get a player like Marc Methot back in our lineup, somebody has to come out … and Mark Borowiecki has come in and played very well and deserves to stay in."

Jared Cowen is a healthy scratch in Thursday's game against the New York Islanders.

The scratching doesn't have a fantasy impact, but Cowen has been disappointing in his young career. He has struggled with consistency in his own end and he's paying the price tonight. The 23-year-old is a minus-9 in 19 games this season. Zack Smith and Colin Greening are also scratched against the Islanders.

Jared Cowen scored his first goal of the year in Thursday's 3-2 win over Nashville.

It was the game winner and his first marker since Mar. 30, 2014. Cowen has produced four points in his last five games.

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.

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."

From the looks of Saturday morning's skate Jared Cowen will once again be a healthy scratch.

He continues to sit while the Sens play Patrick Wiercioch, Eric Gryba and Mark Borowiecki ahead of him. No need to roster Cowen at this point.

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.

There's a chance Jared Cowen may be a healthy scratch Monday night.

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.

Jared Cowen (lower body) probably won't return before the end of the season.

That's not shocking given that there's less than a week left and Ottawa doesn't have anything left to play for. He has 15 points and 45 penalty minutes in 68 games this season.

Jared Cowen will not play Tuesday against the Islanders.

He will not travel with his teammates to Long Island for Tuesday's contest against the Islanders due to a lower-body injury. Cowen is hoping to be able to play Thursday against the Devils but even that looks remote. There is a very good chance that the Sens' young defenseman will not be able to play again this season.

Jared Cowen (lower body) might not be able to return before the end of the regular season.

Jared Cowen will sit out Monday's game with a lower-body ailment.

He is being kept out of the lineup for precautionary reasons, but he might be back in the fold on Wednesday night. Cowen logged 20:21 of ice time and scored the game-winning goal in Sunday's victory against Calgary.
