I agree, that I really want our prospects to develop into complete-game type of players. But I wonder if perhaps Jensen had an injury that kept him out of the top-9? Maybe he was recovering from an injury and being eased back in slowly?

If you are trying to figure out his playing time/line selection as if he were playing in North America then we'll all be really frustrated. The SEL has a seniority mentality were even while playing really well seeing a rookie get even more than 3 mins of ice time is really good. I don't understand it fully but guys with more experience will always get pushed up to the top lines even if there play doesn't deserve it. Jensen is not really being outplayed by anyone on his team, he's just a rookie therefor he gets demoted. That's all there really is to it.
