And the cycle of over-hyping our prospects begins again...

:lol: kidding of course, although Nazzy comparisons are pretty premature.

He's my favourite prospect we have right now, seems cool as a cucumber much like Edler.

What I want to know is why didn't Jensen show any progression in junior after his draft year? Guys we passed on in the draft, such as Brandon Saad, Tomas Jurco, Ty Rattie, Boone Jenner, and Victor Rask all improved while Jensen didn't. If the CHL wasn't good enough competition for him and he had to go to Sweden why couldn't he put up more than 58 points?

Im not hating on the guy, and of course I hope he turns into a gem for us...... but before everyone calls him the next Naslund and a lock for the Canucks remember how good Schroeder looked in his first short stint with the Moose?

He did show progression. He was relied upon alot more in all situations.

Alot of players have put up average numbers in the OHL and then went on and ripped it up in the NHL. OHL numbers really don't mean much. There's alot more aspects that a player needs to work on to make it in the NHL than putting up points.

What I want to know is how is a point a game for 2 OHL seasons (with his second season requiring a much more 2-way role) "average numbers"?

Top prospects usually put up quite a bit more the ppg in the OHL, it's an offensive league, atleast from what I know.

I hope he can keep those numbers up. He's a pure sniper, in the vein of a Semin type with better work ethic and defensive play.


I would consider him more like Rick Nash personally.

Jensen has been my favorite prospect since last preseason, and the world juniors. I absolutely love his skill set, and attitude.

The kid's got game, and I would be very surprised if he didn't step right in to the NHL and contribute.

His game is one that can fit in to our system, and he has the size to play.

Good for him getting off to a good start. He will get some confidence going.

Figured Id give some ppl that:

A: dont go into the prospects forum
B: pay attention to euro hockey

Jensen is in the Elitserien league playing for AIK, he is his teams leading scorer with 3 goals 1 assist 4 points 2pim and a -1 rating in 5 games.

Still doing pretty good being that he is so young playing in the SEL.


thats real good, for a 19 year old in the SEL. Lets hope he can kinda keep up this pace.

3 Nathan Mackkinon

4 Jonathan Drouin.

5 Jonathan Tavares

His point totals are a misleading way to look at it. He's man sized, and plays like it, and plays a responsible game. His stint with the Wolves and now with AIK shows that he thrives in a higher competition game.

I have been more excited for Jensen than anyone weve drafted in the last ten years. I have super high hopes for him and think he has the skill set to be a Forsberg type player.

Sucks that the team is in last place though, would be great if he had a year of experience on a team with a winning attitude. Hopefully the rest of the season goes well for AIK.

Remember, the Maple Laffs were in first place for the beginning of last year....that didn't last.

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

   ryan kesler is going to the chicago blackhawks ...       quote me on it

Fair enough. More surprising to me is that Jensen just seems to maintain his production as he moves up the leagues. OHL, AHL, SEL, he just seems to step into the role and make things happen. That level of consistency indicates good vision to me. As the d and goalies get better, nothing but hockey smarts are going to allow a player to hit the ground running like that. Very encouraging.

World Juniors, when he had no team.
Preseason last year.

He has produced at every level, and would be a GREAT addition to our 3rd line.

Jensen and Hansen on the 3rd? Yes please.

Maybe he could fit well in to the revolving door spot with Kesler and Booth.

I hope your right but I don't think he has the tough side that Forsberg did.
I think the Nash comparison works but Jensen may have a more accurate shot and may already be faster than Nash!

Yea, the majority of forwards drafted from the 1st to 4th or 5th round average a point a game by their second year. It's really not that uncommon. Which is why I say Jensen's numbers were average.

Pretty close except for Gaunce and Morrison.

Gaunce is bigger and not as good of a skater. But he seems to be a great playmaker, like Morrison.

I would love to see a fourth line of Jensen - Lapierre - Kassian this season. Great mix of skill and grit.

I could see him being similar to a pre-injury prone Wojtek Wolski. Similar size, almost identical numbers in the OHL at the same age. Wolski had 63 points one year. Id be happy of Jensen became a 50-60 point player.

I think their is some latent irony in this comment - there'll be a bunch of teams that will regret passing on him to the 29th spot in the draft.
How big is he though? Hockey db/Hf lists him at 6'3", 186lbs - Wickipedia has him at 6' 3" 213 lbs! - the Canucks at 6'2" and 202....regardless, at 19 years old he has shown huge all around potential - and is a safe bet to shut up those people complaining about Canuck drafting performance in the Gillis era.

He's playing around 17 minutes a night, so he's not on the third line, unless they give only 3 to the 4th line.

But man, I'm excited about him.

If everything progresses smoothly with our prospects, which they rarely do, we will still have a wide open window to win the cup in 2-3 years.

Sedin - Sedin - Kassian
Booth - Schroeder - Kesler
Burrows - Gaunce - Jensen
Higgins - Lapierre - Hansen

Has the potential to be the best forwar group we've ever iced. Of course a ton of things have to go right.

He is playing on the third line. He just gets minutes on the PP and PK.
