If I'm correct, I believe I have heard a lot about this kid and that he has had a pretty promising career in St. Cloud.

I recall reading somewhere that this was sort of a make or break year for Jensen given how well the other defensive prospects are developing, so he must have impressed.  That or they're planning on leaving Backman and Marchenko in Europe for another year.  I don't see how they can take on contracts for the two Euros plus Sproul, Oulette, Nedomlel, and now Jensen too. 


GMRwings:  "Well, in other civilized countries, 16 years old isn't considered underage.  For instance, I believe the age of consent is 16 in Canada.  There's some US states where it's 16 as well.  

 

Get off the high horse.  Not like she was 10."

2012-2013 WCHA Defensive Player of The Year :thumbup: 

 

And yes, that hair!!!!! He and Danny D would look like cool 70s retro-Wings patrolling the blueline.

6'1 195lbs

 

Was recently named the Western Collegiate Hockey Association defensive player of the year.

Was named a NCAA West First-Team All-America.

 

Signing a pro contract means he will forego his senior season at St Cloud, and likely play for the Griffins next year.

Jensen is a good puck moving RHed shooting Dman. he will be in GR for at least 1 year, maybe both.  The griffins are going to have a very talented, but very young blueline next year: Nicastro, Sproul, Oullet, Jensen, big Ned. 3 of those 5 are RHed shots! Add in Almqvist and keep Evens for leadership, looks very good!

 

of course this also provides us with lots of parts for trades if needed-which it is.......

Comments from Jiri Fischer this spring:

 

“Every game I’ve seen him, he was the hardest competitive guy (on the ice) and he’s got the heart of a lion,” said Red Wings director of player development Jiri Fischer. “He’s in people’s faces, he’s taking people’s space away thanks to his skating, and he makes great outlet passes. He’s had a great year and we’re really happy with his development.”

Don't forget about Marchenko! All signs point to him coming over from Russia to play NA hockey. Oh, and he's also a righty. 

...and then Backman coming over the following season.

 

I'm guessing guys like Nedomlel, and Nicastro will likely be pushed to the ECHL to make room for these guys.

 

Sproul Ouellet

Marchenko Backman

Almqvist Jansen

Nicastro Nedomlel

De Haas McKee

 

Solid looking defensive prospects.

Living in saint cloud and watching him play, lot of huskies fans sad to see him leave. He was by far best defensemen we had. He's very smart player, very rare is he out of position. Not afraid to skate the puck up. Got a solid shot. And I can't wait to see him play with Griffins and hopefully Red Wings!

He put up better offensive numbers all through their careers.

 

I can't say I know too much about Jensen, his accomplishments are pretty impressive, he has a pretty good build, not big, but not really small. Being a right handed shot is huge too, not bad for a 5th round pick here. Our defensive prospects very well might be the best in the league, and I'm not just saying that.

Well, he doesn't have that mullet anymore. Gave it to very good purpose, though.

Great signing. I've heard he's pretty good all-around d-man.
