What GRC says: Fall 2013: Jensen might get off to a slow start because of a shoulder injury suffered during development camp, but if he can stake out a spot on the Griffins blueline he should be a difference maker. He is an incredible skater who is equally comfortable making an outlet pass or showing off his agility and speed by carrying the mail up ice himself. An older prospect, Jensen is ultra-competitive and is not afraid to play physical including dropping the gloves on occasion.
Role: Offensive Defenseman
Projection: NHL Top 4 defenseman
