Corey Cowick, who has spent the majority of the past three seasons with the Binghamton Senators, has landed himself a new deal with parent-club Ottawa.
The 24-year-old from Gloucester, Ont., was drafted by the Senators in the sixth round of the 2009 draft, and came to the Binghamton Sens after ending his career with the OHL’s Ottawa 67’s.
In his OHL career — Cowick spent 154 games with the Oshawa Generals and 114 with the 67’s — Cowick was a power forward who drove the puck to the net and could contribute, but was never a go-to guy. Though his OHL career, Cowick was able to post 81 goals and 56 assists, and put together a nice junior career.
After coming to the pros, Cowick spent a significant amount of time in his first season playing with the Elmira Jackals, and has developed quite well. Since his 31 game stint with the Jackals in 2010-11, Cowick has only spent another 22 games in the ‘E’ — part of his season in 2012 — and became a full-time member of the Senators last season.
In 75 games with Bingo last year, Cowick buried 16 goals and added 19 assists, a scoring pace he was on back in his OHL days.
