Yes, Jensen was named for the national team that will play three exhibition matches next month. The NHL players were likely left out because it's still uncertain if they will be available or not, and the national team manager wants to have a closer look at the players who will be fighting for the final spots of the team. But even if NHL'ers were on the team, Jensen would be on the team, no doubt. He is probably the best Dane not in the NHL.
