Jared Cowen has been suspended three games for his high hit on Panthers forward Jussi Jokinen.
"I'm disappointed," Cowen said. "I think 3 games is a bit much. I didn't hurt anyone and I didn't mean to hurt anyone." He'll miss the Senators' last three February contests and is eligible to return on March 3. He has nine points and 43 penalty minutes in 49 contests in 2014-15. Feb 23 - 11:29 AM

Jared Cowen will have a hearing with the NHL department of player safety Monday morning.

Cowen landed a late hit to the head of Panthers forward Jussi Jokinen seconds after he had passed the puck back to a teammate. Cowen only got a two-minute penalty for the hit. He was suspended two games in Dec. 2013 for a head shot.

Jared Cowen suited up for the Senators on Monday.

He was scratched for Saturday's game versus Edmonton. Cowen played 20:05 of ice time against Carolina and he posted a minus-2 rating in a 6-3 loss. Mark Borowiecki joined the popcorn brigade in Cowen's place.

Jared Cowen may be a healthy scratch for Saturday afternoon's contest against Edmonton.

He was skating as the seventh defenseman in Friday's practice as Patrick Wiercioch was working with Cody Ceci on the Sens' third pairing. Even if when he plays, Cowen doesn't have any real fantasy value.

Jared Cowen scored a goal and an assist for the Senators in their 5-3 loss to Los Angeles on Thursday night.

Cowen now has seven points in 21 games for Ottawa with a minus-six rating. The pair were the 23-year-old's first points in five games.

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

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.
