December 2013- Jensen who was injured (shoulder) in a fight with fellow Red Wings prospect Tyler Bertuzzi at the Wings prospect camp over the summer has finally been deemed healthy and ready to play. Due to the numbers game, he was sent on November 21st to Toledo of the ECHL but it didn’t take long as he was only there three games before being recalled to Grand Rapids on November 30th. Jensen has since laced up in four games for the Griffins and is still trying to work himself back into game shape. He has still yet to register his first professional point but his presence has already helped solidify the Griffins blueline into what is likely the most talented defensive corps in the entire AHL. Due to depth in the system, Jensen isn't expected in Detroit anytime soon but the way the injuries have been piling up its not completely out of the question as the season progresses. Travis Watson

May 2013- Nick Jensen signed a two year entry-level contract today with the Red Wings. Look for him to lace em' up on the point with the Grand Rapid Griffins next season and potentially play his way into a call-up option. Travis Watson


April 2013-  One of Detroit’s prospects you may not have heard much about, but that changed this season as Nick Jensen helped lead St. Cloud State Huskies to their first ever Frozen Four championships. Unfortunately the outcome didn’t turn out as hoped as they were ousted by the number one ranked Quinnipiac Bulldogs in the frozen four semi-finals. However Jensen enjoyed another successful season scoring 4G-27A-31PTS and a plus- 22 rating while also collecting WCHA’s Defensive player of the year, WCHA’s First Team All-Star and NCAA (West) First All-American team. Better make some room for all that hardware.


Fantasy Outlook: C


Very smart, agile and capable defender with the ability to contribute on the offensive end due to his smooth skating stride and soft touch. Working his way up the Red Wings prospect ranks after a spectacular Junior season for the Huskies leading them to the Frozen Four.
