Certainly a promising start to our prospects overseas. Just makes me all the more excited for the Wolves' season to start too.

Yep, pretty much this.

Just goes to show what we already know, Jensens shot is already NHL level. And 4 points in 5 games, for a low scoring team in a low scoring league. Very well done.

In the NHL he would need almost 1 PPG to be in top 15, the same for the AHL.
If we give a rough estimation that .8 PPG in SEL is equal to PPG in AHL. I don't think there would be any doubt that Jensen would start the season on the Canucks if he played PPG in the AHL.
But lets not get ahead of our selves and see how he does on a bigger sample size.
Agreed, those goals were great shots. Top corner, glove side both times to boot. What sort of production can we expect for a 19 year-old in his rookie season, realistically?
