Contract status: RFA in 2013 Current contract: 3yr/$875k ($65k in the AHL) Acquired: Traded from Florida along with Evgenii Dadonov in exchange for Jonathan Matsumoto and Mattias Lindstrom
This is the first time I've ever given any thought to Jenks being in the organization. I was wondering why he was even included in the Dadonov trade, till I saw he played 4 years in Plymouth. And of course, we're their alumni employment agency, so I guess that makes sense.
Anybody see this guy in Charlotte? Is there an upside to having him? He went scoreless in 25 games in San Antonio prior to the trade, and spent time in the ECHL, so his chances of even making an impact in Charlotte seem pretty low.

Everything everyone seemed to be saying when we got him was simply to watch him over the next couple of years. Doesn't likely have an NHL future, but has the physical capabilities to eventually make a difference if we develop him right.
That being said, right now he means next to nothing to us.
He was developing very nicely. I think 2 or 3 years of the right training he could make the 4th line. He is also a nice kid in person. Meet him and some others at one of the Canes watch parties in Charlotte.
