He had a blood clot in his arm, so a pretty serious injury. We will see they have made a lot of progress with that particular problem as far as medicine. Several NHL guys have had them, it sits them down for a season, but we should get an update over the summer.

Yes if they keep him there for his senior season, they would basically allow a three month period where we could sign him over other people. I have a feeling if he does go back we won't get him, which is a shame given how he skates, but if they are circling DeKeyser they might just think the D pool is too jammed as is.

Are you sure Jensen could bail? I thought there was a loophole for Schultz because he was drafted out of the bchl

That is the reason Schultz could leave after his Junior season and do it. I don't think he is any different than any other college senior in that he would have to wait for July 1st, but at that point he would be a free agent again. It is a gamble to send Jensen back for his senior season, if he has a great one and he could there will be a market for him and a pretty large one given his tools.

That's what struck me. Jensen is one of those prospects that has a few tools that make him stand out. His skating is NHL level right now, his defense could improve, and his decision making could be better, but in the end he's a prospect you sign.

I'd be disappointed if the Wings didn't offer him a contract this year. There are a few prospects that I'd get rid of over him.

I believe Quine was a +3. And Hudon was in a fight last night, no points and -2.

Yeah, that was the info we were given at the time but only time will tell. Tvrdon has missed a lot of time due to injuries, we'll see if he can still pull it together.

Seems like Sproul is really racking up the minuses lately.

Järnkrok's Brynäs lost game 2 7-3. He had no points, was a -1, 53% on faceoffs and 19:08 icetime. Doesn't seem like they have much of a chance to go further...

Järnkrok should join the Griffins when his team bounces out.

Jensen was chosen as WCHA Defensive player of the Year and for the All-WCHA 1st team. Per @chrismpeters.

Is defensive player = defenseman?

I had to check that and it looks like it's almost always a defenseman but has been a forward a couple of times. Link. For some reason all the other divisions(?) seem to have a separate award for best defensive forward.

Smith won it in 09-10, Schultz in 10-11 and 11-12.

Nevertheless, not bad for a 5th round pick. Jensen is probably the biggest sleeper in our system.

For those who have watched both, could Jensen by any chance be seen as a bigger, right-handed version of Billins?

That's a pretty darn good list of people to be associated with if your Nick Jensen. Mighty fine pedigree there.

Watched both, Jensen blows Billins outta the water.

Gotta agree here. I've only seen Jensen maybe 5 times, but Jensen has better size, he's a better skater, better shot and better defensively than Billins.

Sounds good. Billins is a very good skater(and player, period) in the AHL to say the least.

His best asset is his wheels, he's a great skater.

Jensen has also shown the ability to use his skating to deliver big hits. He is a big kid as far as build and ability to put more weight on but skates real well, possibly the best skater in the system period and yes I know we have Ferraro, Quine and AA (forward). I don't think his offense will translate in a huge way, but he makes a nice first crisp pass and skates the puck out of trouble. Really reminds me of a former alumni from his university Bret Hedican.

Latest rumors over at redwingscentral had him going back, part of what I am angry about.

Awesome! I've been a big fan. Unfortunately he didn't put up a huge amount of points this year so he probably won't get much in the way of Hobey Baker votes but winning that award certainly bodes well for his pro career.
