After a comprehensive rehab schedule the versatile backline player made 14 appearances for the Scarlets last season scoring two tries, against Cardiff Blues and Leicester Tigers respectively.
With personnel changes made in the backline at the end of last season Owen says he's excited at the prospect of playing with a number of the region's emerging young talents, he said: "There are a few players in the backline that can cover different roles and that gives us flexibility to play an expansive and exciting brand of rugby.
"We're a young squad but we also have a British and Irish Lion and a number of international players in the squad like Jon [Davies] and Rhys [Priestland] who can offer invaluable experience to the younger boys. You also have players like Ken [Owens] and Phil [John] amongst the forwards who have a wealth of experience which the younger guys can benefit from.
"There's a great mix of players here at the moment and it's a very good environment to be involved in."
Having made a full recovery from what was a prospective career-ending injury Owen is delighted to be back in action on the rugby field and is looking forward to continuing with his development at the West Wales region.
"After the injury, and having damages three of the four tendons in my knee I was told that it was very unlikely that I'd be able to run again let alone play rugby.
"I love rugby and had always wanted to play rugby so it was as much about proving everybody wrong and getting back on to the field than anything else to be honest. I was determined not to give up on my dream after the injury and I believe that shows a lot of character.
"I'm very fortunate to be able to call rugby a job and I'm probably fitter now than I've ever been and really excited for the new season."
Not content with the play-off spot in last season's RaboDirect PRO12 Owen went on to say that the squad as a whole were looking to improve on last season.
"We did well to get where we did but we need to improve on last season and push on. We have another tough group in the Heineken Cup but we aim to compete well in the competition.
"It's a huge season from a personal perspective but also for the squad as a whole. I'll be pushing for a regular spot in the team and there's no better place to start than at home against the reigning champions, Leinster!"
Scarlets will welcome Leinster to Parc y Scarlets this Friday, 6th September, kick-off 7.05pm.
