Honestly though, any one of Pulock, Ristolainen, Morrissey, Hagg or Zadorov and I'll be ecstatic. Come to think of it, pretty much any defenseman in the 1st round would be excellent. I love this draft.


I definitely wouldn't mind it though if we could pull Frederik Gauthier or Anthony Mantha out though

One can only hope he is turning pro but news would have already been out if thats the case

I think staying the college would probably be best for him.

Only knock is that he's left handed.
I've been left wanting more everytime I see London play with Zadorov.

I'm not overly impressed.

Now at 15th or later, I could be convinced his ultimate upside is worth it, but I'm not a big fan right now.

Another goal for Jensen today, and this time an unassisted SH goal. It's not on the AIK site yet, so we'll have to wait to see it.

With regards to Labate, watched Wisconsin's game this morning.

Goal was luck, shot into the goalies skates from the goal line.

Wisconsin looks much better with Zengerle and Kerdiles in the lineup, the problem for us is that Labate hardly plays.

He wasn't used once in OT, he's rotated at what I would deem the 2nd line LW position.

I am slowly losing faith this kid has a chance to ever make the NHL, generally you need to be an impact player in the NCAA to even have a chance...he's a passenger at best on a poor team right now.

1 more goal will put Jensen at 13 which would be the the most goals by a junior age SEL player since Patric Hornqvist in 06-07. And the last 19 year old to hit 13 goals before Hornqvist was Daniel Sedin in 99-00.

Ouch, yeah sounds like a pretty bad sophomore slump.

Beauty was an understatement.

This kid is awesome, I love how under the radar he is for the rest of the league.

Other than Jones and Pulock, I would probably rather pick most of the 1st round forwards right now. It's a bigger weakness and even though we don't have a #1 D, our defense outside of that is stacked.

Wow, what hands! Amazing he was able to elevate it to top corner with so little room and with a defender on him.

There's also a Jensen interview on the same page. Seems like Jensen is joining the Danish national team during the SEL's week long break.

Also, it appears that AIK has a new coach, hopefully one that will keep their top goal scorer in Jensen on the first line.

What a goal



Man, not only are his hands and shot amazing, I was very glad to see him active in front of the net near the beginning of that video, trying to tip the puck in. That shows that he isn't afraid of going to the rough areas and that he isn't just a perimeter sniper. Loui Eriksson is looking more and more like a solid comparable.

Patrick McNally (and Max Everson) have been removed from the roster. No explanation given.

I'd be shocked if they're embroiled in the Gov 1310 thing.

McNally's dad is an FBI agent, there could be some cover-up stuff going on.




But seriously though, this is confusing.

True, but there is a lot of focus on the gym at college, and he could probably use another good year.

But, if he does leave he can't play in the CHL can he?

Yeah, I would like to know as well. Another year in development could do wonders for his game. But if all else fails, he could play for the Wolves.

Edit: Just Wiki'd him, he's 21, so he's probably too old, he would likely sign with the Wolves if he was released from Harvard.

What a great goal. Jensen is a dual citizen. If he had elected to play for Canada do you think he would be a candidate for a roster spot on the juniors this year?
