Looks like he has a ton of upside based on that video.

Thanks. Jensen is gonna be a good player. Look at that goal coast to coast against the Knights.

A few of those goals would never be let in on NHL goalies. Others however, he is in great position for the rebound and pounces (and releases) very quickly. I think he will be able to translate these types of goals to the NHL.

Would not be disappointed in the least if the Oilers picked him up at #19.

Anyone else reminded of Jeff Carter?

He's such a similar type of player imo. Both tall rangy players, with good reach and stick handling abilities. But at this point of their career, Jeff Carter's skating is better.

If he can improve his skating from average to good he will be a 60-70 point player in the NHL. He oozes potential but currently he looks to be a solid second line player who will put up anywhere from 45-60 points.

He reminded me of a left handed Kovalchuk with his release.

Great fluid skater. Wouldn't be shocked to see a team surprise people and take him top 15.

His stride is very fluid, perhaps a little rough on his edges though.

Oodles of upside. Loves to shoot.

Could see Ottawa trying to protect him. Their interest in him started early this season. If they don't trade up their own 1st, there's a good chance they will move the Nashville pick.

What is the downside to Nicklas Jensen? I've never seen him other than the posted clips. Given his impressive skating, size and overall skills I don't understand why he's consistently rated in the lower part of the first round. Is it just that he's streaky or are there other issues? How was his playoff performance?

to be honest i think maybe people dont think he has the higher end skill level that top ten have, and that he only played in the ohl this year, i think he will be one of the better players out of the draft

I came here to post this EXACT comparison. Reminds me exactly of Carter. I think he is one of the most underrated players of the draft and he is absolutely going to rip up the OHL next year. Same quick release and long stride/reach.

What are everyones opinions on him? Could he be another type of player that rises much like Johansen did last year? I've seen him ranked in the late first early second rounds so far but I see this guy as a sure fire top 15 prospect if he continues to improve, there just so much untapped potential there.
Great chrystal ball you have there
