The Ottawa Sun reports that the Ottawa Senators have tabled an eight-year, $28 million contract offer to restricted free agent defenceman Jared Cowen as both sides look to get a deal done before the start of training camp next month.

The Sun adds that while the deal has not been rejected, nothing has been done and both side have exchanged 'several proposals.'

Cowen's agent Rick Valette, told The Ottawa Citizen on Thursday that the two sides have had some 'preliminary discussions' about financial numbers, but are more focused on the length of the contract.

Cowen, 22, played seven games with the Senators last season after recovering from surgery for a torn labrum in his hip. He suffered the injury while playing with the American Hockey League's Binghamton Senators and had surgery in mid-November.

He's played 90 games with the Senators, tallying six goals and 18 points with a minus-3 rating and 68 penalty minutes.
