Report: Maple Leafs place Cowen on waivers for buyout purposes
Let the buyout season begin.
The 25-year-old had one year and $2.15 million left on his deal, according to General Fanager.
Toronto had been planning to buy him out since the trade. In March, Cowen's agent said his client had six months to get back to being "a good player."
Wednesday marked the start of the NHL's first buyout window, which extends through June 30.
