RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Jensen is one of the most exciting prospects in the Canucks’ system. The 2011 first-round pick has put together back-to-back stellar seasons in the OHL, totaling 106 points (54 G, 62 A) in 118 games. The 19-year old winger is done with the Junior circuit and has already stated his desires to play for the Canucks or Stockholm AIK of the Swedish Elite League in 2012-13. He’s considered a longshot to make the Canucks’ roster out of camp, but stranger things have happened. If the highly-skilled finese winger defies the odds and makes Vancouver’s roster, he could be one of the better young sleepers to target.
The Canucks' 2011 first-round pick is a highly-skilled winger out of Denmark. He's considered somewhat of a project, but Jensen possesses all of the necessary tools to develop into a high-scoring winger. At 18 years old, he'll likely need a couple of development years before joining the Canucks, though players in deep keeper leagues should already start thinking about nabbing Jensen.
