Nicklas Jensen can screen the goalie with his 6'3 frame and set himself in front of the net for tips and tap-ins but he isn't a power forward and won't be able to do it like Kassian does. He's a screen like Kesler or Eriksson.

He's much more suited to playing the halfwall on the power play, actively using his size and speed to get to, protect and move the puck and then using his insane shot to score or even playing the point. He's a sniper who has size and speed and can protect the puck, not a power forward who will grind their way to the front of the net and beat back defenders.
