Jensen tied for the team lead with seven goals (7-4--11) in the 2011 playoffs before the Generals were eliminated in the second round by Niagara.

• Jensen joins three Oshawa Generals forwards on the Central Scouting final rankings list – Boone Jenner (No. 18 ranked), Lucas Lessio (No. 46 ranked) and Colin Suellentrop (No. 140 ranked).

• He helped Denmark win the Division I 2011 World Junior Championships in Slovenia earning Denmark a spot in the same group as Canada and the U.S. at the 2012 championship. While playing in the top Danish league in the 2009-10 season, he tallied 26 points in 34 games (12-14--26), earning Rookie of the Year recognition.

• His father, Dan, who was born in Canada, played a few years in the OHL before spending 16 seasons playing professional hockey in Denmark. He had 175 goals and 954 penalty minutes in 549 games from 1989-2005. He also competed for Denmark at the 2003 World Championship, scoring a goal in Denmark’s 2-2 tie with Team Canada.

NHL Central Scouting's Chris Edwards

“Nicklas has adjusted very well to the OHL. His puck-handling and play-making ability are excellent. He has an excellent wrist shot that he gets off quickly.”

Oshawa Generals GM and coach Chris DePiero

“He's starting to take off, certainly after Christmas, after he returned from the World Junior B pool and spending some time at home, since he's been back he's been on fire. It's renewed confidence for him. He's proving that the accolades coming his way are well deserved. They feed off each other (Lucas Lessio, Andy Andreoff and Nicklas Jensen). It's not the pretty passing plays, it's the little touch passes. They utilize their size and their quickness. Their puck protection is excellent. … They have a chemistry, the three of them. It's been kind of neat.”

One Timer:

Nicklas Jensen may become the best Danish hockey player ever. The 6-foot-3-inch winger has been trending in the right direction but has yet to receive the recognition he deserves. Jensen plays a strong north south style of game and projects to become a solid complementary player in the NHL. The Danish hockey players have started to become more common around the NHL as players like Jannik Hansen, Frans Nielsen, Mikkel Boedker and Lars Eller attempt to establish themselves as everyday NHLers. Like Boedker (8th) and Eller (13th) before him, Nicklas Jensen is looking to become the third Danish player to be selected in the first round and he has the potential to become the best ever.

Jensen has a sizeable frame and the natural hockey qualities that scouts look for - soft hands, great shot, and a good hockey sense. Jensen lacks that elite top end speed but is capable of finding time and space with his slick hands and elusive playing style. It took Nicklas a while to adjust to the CHL game but he eventually impressed when he notched 11 goals and 8 assists in just twelve January games. The former Rookie of the Year in the top Danish League projects to become a top-6 scoring forward with 30+ goal scoring upside. However, the inconsistencies in his game are alarming and there is a “bust” potential if Nicklas cannot find a way onto scoresheets more regularily. His pro-calibre shot and intriguing offensive potential will surely make him a first round selection but his all-too-common disappearing acts could find him sliding further than his talent warrants.

Scout’s Honour:

-NHL Central Scouting’s Chris Edwards,

“Nicklas has adjusted very well to the OHL. His puck-handling and play-making ability are excellent. He has an excellent wrist shot that he gets off quickly.”

- Oshawa Generals GM and coach Chris DePiero,

“He’s starting to take off, certainly after Christmas, after he returned from the World Junior B pool and spending some time at home, since he’s been back he’s been on fire. It’s renewed confidence for him. He’s proving that the accolades coming his way are well deserved. They feed off each other (Lucas Lessio, Andy Andreoff and Nicklas Jensen). It’s not the pretty passing plays, it’s the little touch passes. They utilize their size and their quickness. Their puck protection is excellent. … They have a chemistry, the three of them. It’s been kind of neat.”

- Kirk Luedeke of B2011DW,

“He’s a long strider who covers a lot of ground with a powerful push, but needs to keep the feet moving. He can really rip it, too- scores more than a few goals from the outside with laser release and ability to pick corners. So, while he brings some real impressive talents and abilities to the mix, Jensen has to keep his compete levels at a higher level. How far will he drop in the draft? Our guess is not too far past 20 if at all because he is such a talented player that a team is likely going to believe they can reach and keep motivated…If Boone Jenner’s motor was installed inside this kid, he’d be a top-three pick- no kidding. Big upside with this one, but some bust potential as well.”
