this is what we all thought happened:
1. Jared Cowen signed his ELC on February 3rd 2010.
2. Jared Cowen's age on September 15th 2010 was 19. Therefore Jared Cowen signed his ELC as an age 19 player.
3. As a 19 year old player, Cowen's ELC was a 3-year ELC
4. Because cowen did not play more than 10 games in 2009-10, his contract slid to start in 2010-11.
5. For 2010-11, jared cowen SHOULD STILL BE A 19 YEAR OLD PLAYER as his age on September 15th 2010 is still 19.
6. Jared Cowen again did not play more than 10 games in 2010-11. His contract should slide another year.
7. Jared Cowen is now a 20-year-old player for 2011-12. His 3-year ELC should be for the 2011-12, 2012-13, and 2013-14 Seasons.


what really happened?:

Because Cowen signed his first contract in 2010 and not in 2009, his first contract signing age was 19, not 18. If your first contract signing age is 19, your contract can only slide once as per 9.1 d (i). To use 9.1 d (ii) to slide a second time, first contract signing age has to be 18.


therefore yes, Jared Cowen is an RFA.

by delaying signing Jared Cowen's ELC to february of 2010 instead of any point between being drafted and december 31st 2009, we lost a year of his ELC.



regarding his UFA age:
Quote:
(a) Group 3 Players and Free Agents.
(i) Any Player who either has seven (7) Accrued Seasons or is 27 years of age
or older as of June 30 of the end of a League Year, shall, if his most recent
SPC has expired, with such expiry occurring either as of June 30 of such
League Year or June 30 of any prior League Year, become an Unrestricted
Free Agent. Such Player shall be completely free to negotiate and sign an
SPC with any Club, and any Club shall be completely free to negotiate and
sign an SPC with such Player, without penalty or restriction, or being
subject to any Right of First Refusal, Draft Choice Compensation or any
other compensation or equalization obligation of any kind.
Jared Cowen still only has 2 accrued seasons. 2010-11 does not count as an accrued season because he did not play 10 games and was a 19yo player. That means Jared Cowen can reach 7 accrued seasons and UFA after the 2017-18 season. By age, jared cowen turns 27 on January 25th 2018, making him a UFA after the 2017-18 season. We still have 5 more seasons of RFA cowen.
