Jensen's OHL record isn't at all reflective of how good of a player he is or could be. It's been pretty clear over the last year that he's meant to play with men instead of boys.
Jensen has so far excelled beyond expectations playing at the prof level. While the sample size has been small, the results are pretty amazing.
When he was called up to the Wolves, he had 4 goals in 6 games. He's one of the SEL's leading goal scorers with 12 goals in 32 games playing on one of the worst teams in the league. When he played for Denmark's National Men's team, he lead in scoring with 3 goals and 3 assists in 6 games. By comparison, the second leading scorer on the team only had 3 points in 6 games.
Give his stellar record at the pro level so far, he could potentially climb as high as a top line winger in the NHL, but I think it's safe to say that he projects as clear top six material.
