from Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun, Jared Cowen is getting ready return to the club’s blueline, the Ottawa Sun has learned. The Senators will likely end their contract dispute with the 22-year-old defenceman Saturday with a four-year deal worth approximately $12 million that will allow the restricted free agent to report to camp. Only hours after Senators assistant GM Tim Murray declared the two sides were at an impasse, he went back to the bargaining table with Cowen’s Alberta-based agent Rick Valette and both showed a willingness to bend. “We’ve held talks and we’re trying to find a resolution,” Valette told the Sun when reached at 9 p.m. Friday. continued

Sens, Cowen Agree To Four Year, $12M Contract by   Steven Ellis

The Ottawa Senators have agreed to terms with defenceman Jared Cowen on a four-year contract worth $12M.

Travis Yost: Jared Cowen Signs

On Saturday morning, we learned that Ottawa Senators defenseman Jared Cowen agreed to a four-year, $12.1MM deal. The annual payouts have not been disclosed, but I'd guess like most every Ottawa contract signed of late, the contract is back-loaded, with Cowen receiving a bigger share of payments in years three and four. A fair deal, I think. Ottawa probably could've squeezed...

2013-14 NHL Season Preview: Ottawa Senators

This 2013-14 NHL season preview features the Ottawa Senators. The Senators accomplished quite a bit last year considering what they had to work with. They played a large chunk of the season without Erik Karlsson, Jared Cowen, Jason Spezza, Milan Michalek and Craig Anderson in the lineup. There aren’t too many teams that can remain in the playoff hunt despite losing their entire...

Spezza named captain for Senators

Jason Spezza has been named the new captain of the Ottawa Senators the team announced Saturday. Spezza who has been Ottawa's No. 1 center for much of his 10-year NHL career was the No. 2 pick in the 2001 NHL Draft and fulfilled his promise in becoming one of the League's top offensive players. He will replace Daniel Alfredsson who was given the "C" in 1999 and...

Travis Yost: On Methot and Corsi%

Make sure to follow Travis on Twitter! -- I had kind of a cool discussion yesterday with defenseman Marc Methot on Twitter, and I found the back-and-forth fascinating for a variety of reasons. Initially, I had posted a graph of Marc Methot's Corsi% (an excellent possession/chance proxy) in Columbus and Ottawa, noting his production with various pairmates over the years. Not...

Jason Spezza Announced as Senators’ Captain

The Senators have announced that Jason Spezza will step into the vacant skates of Daniel Alfredsson and take over the mantle of captain. Veteran tough guy Chris Neil will take on the 'A' vacated by Spezza along with Chris Phillips. The choice of Spezza isn't surprising and was fairly widely expected after Alfredsson left for Detroit. (I even had a post on it here)....
