2008-09: Corey Cowick had a breakout season in his first OHL season with the Ottawa 67s after spending two years with the Oshawa Generals. Cowick was the team's third-leading scorer with 34 goals and 26 assists and had a +21 plus/minus with 48 PMs in 68 games for the East Division's second-place 67's. Cowick played in all seven games in Ottawa's first-round series with Niagara and scored 7 goals with 2 assists and was +3 with 14 PMs. Five of his seven playoff goals were scored on the power play. Cowick was selected by the Senators in the sixth round (160th overall) of the 2009 NHL Draft.
2009-10: Cowick put a strong finish on a tough 20-year-old season for the OHL Ottawa 67's. Cowick was supposed to make a major impact in his overage year, but was limited to just 27 games after sustaining a shoulder injury in pre-season that kept him out until January. The 6’2”, 205-pounder continued his scoring ways upon his return, tallying 15 goals and 21 points in 27 games. He added 9 goals and 3 assists in 12 playoff contests, to go with 27 PMs as Ottawa took league finalist Mississauga to seven games.
2010-11: Cowick split his first pro season between AHL Binghamton and the Elmira Jackals of the ECHL. He skated in one October game for Binghamton before being sent to Elmira. He was re-called by Binghamton in February and finished the season in the AHL. In 30 regular season AHL games Cowick scored 1 goal with 3 assists and was -4 with 20 PMs. He did not see any action in the playoffs for the Calder Cup champions. In his 31 game stint with Elmira he was one of the more penalized players on a team with several "sand paper'-type players; Cowick had 76 PMs while scoring 7 goals with 12 assists and was -3 for the Jackals.
2011-12: Cowick split the season between Ottawa's AHL affiliates Binghamton and Elmira in his second year as a pro. He appeared in a career-high 53 AHL games for Binghamton; scoring 5 goals with 6 assists and finishing minus-six with 38 penalty minutes. Cowick played 22 games in the ECHL with the Jackals and was plus-three with 8 goals and 5 assists. He was with Elmira during the ECHL playoffs and scored 2 goals with 26 penalty minutes in eight games as the Jackals reached the second round.
Cowick is likely to be ticketed for Binghamton next season, where he’ll look to establish himself as a power forward at the next level.
