The Ottawa Senators continue to wait on restricted free agent Jared Cowen.
LONDON, Ontario — The Ottawa Senators continue to wait on restricted free agent Jared Cowen.
Cowen’s camp has been silent and the Senators are waiting for some response to any one of four contract proposals they’ve put forth.
“I felt that we continued to put something out there,” Senators general manager Bryan Murray said during the first intermission of Saturday’s rookie tournament game against the Chicago Blackhawks. “I’m not sure if we can continue to do that. I guess the term is you ‘negotiate against yourself’.
So, there’s some hope we can get some communication going here fairly quickly, so Jared can give us an indication (of something), one way or another.”
The Senators open training camp on Wednesday and at this point, it doesn’t appear like Cowen will be at Canadian Tire Centre.
