His development looks similar to Tomas Jurco's from Detroit. Took about a half-season to get used to the pro game, then his game took off.
Add to that the fact he was trying to find his way on the worst team in the AHL, which happens to be a brand new franchise with a rookie coach.

What lends credibility to Jensen starting to play the way he's capable of is the fact the whole team is doing the same. It's not like everyone was playing to their potential and it was just Jensen who stuck out like a sore thumb.

Jensen is a Jeff Carter-esque pure goal scorer. He didn't rack up the assists in his rookie season in the SHL and the same goes for him this year in the AHL. He's just a guy who finishes in all sorts of ways.
