Jared Cowen (born January 25, 1991) is a Canadian professional ice hockey defenceman. He was drafted in the first round, ninth overall, by the Ottawa Senators in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft. He is currently a member of the Binghamton Senators of the American Hockey League (AHL), and was a member of Binghamton's 2011 Calder Cup winning team.

Playing careerEdit


Spokane ChiefsEdit

Cowen was selected by the Chiefs with the first-overall pick in the 2006 WHL Bantam Draft. He appeared in six regular season games in the 2006–07 season and also six playoff games. In his first full season with the team, he played in 68 games, and had four goals, 14 assists and 18 points, to go along with 62 penalty minutes. The Chiefs won the Ed Chynoweth Cup that season as the league's champions. Cowen played in all 21 playoff games, scoring one goal and adding three assists. As the league's champions, the Chiefs subsequently earned a berth in the 2008 Memorial Cup, where they defeated the Kitchener Rangers by a score of 4-1. Cowen effectively clinched the Chiefs' championship by scoring into an empty net with 56 seconds to play. He was named the Chiefs rookie of the year, and the WHL Western Conference scholastic player of the year.
The 2008–09 season saw Cowen's numbers improve, as he registered seven goals and 14 assists. However, his season was cut short due to a knee injury suffered in a game against the Chilliwack Bruins.[1] He still managed to be ranked as the seventh best skater in the final rankings for the 2009 NHL Draft by the International Scouting Service.


Ottawa SenatorsEdit

Cowen signed a professional contract with the Senators in March 2010. After Spokane was eliminated from the playoffs, Cowen received a call-up to the Senators. He made his NHL debut with the Senators on April 8, 2010 in Tampa against the Tampa Bay Lightning.[2]

Compared by some scouts to Zdeno Chara[3] and Derian Hatcher,[4] Cowen was expected to challenge for a roster spot in Ottawa for the 2010-11 season. Cowen made it to the final cuts at the 2010 training camp, before being returned to junior.

Cowen was a member of the Binghamton Senators' 2011 Calder Cup championship team in his first season of professional hockey.
