Nicklas Jensen will be a healthy scratch in Sunday's game vs. Detroit.

The Vancouver Canucks have recalled Nicklas Jensen from the minors.

Jensen was recalled due to the injury suffered by Zack Kassian. Jensen was a healthy scratch on Friday. He has played three games in the NHL this season with nary a point.

The Vancouver Canucks have assigned Nicklas Jensen to the Utica Comets of the AHL.

The first round pick in 2011 has no points in three games with Vancouver this season. The 21-year-old has good long-term upside and should be back in the NHL at some point during the year.
Nov 15 - 1:01 PM

Nicklas Jensen has been called up by the Vancouver Canucks.

Jensen has four goals and six points in 11 AHL games this season. He was taken with the 29th overall pick in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft. We don't anticipate him contributing enough offensively to make him worth owning in standard leagues.
Nov 7 - 3:29 PM

Nicklas Jensen has been sent to the AHL by Vancouver.

Jensen was expected to make the Canucks' opening game roster, but those plans have obviously changed. Coach Willie Desjardins was happy with how Jensen performed during training camp, but Desjardins didn't see a top-nine spot for him, so it was decided that Jensen should head to the minors for now so that he could get more ice time.

Nicklas Jensen will start the season with the Vancouver Canucks.

Jensen made the team when the Canucks sent Hunter Shinkaruk to the minors but he impressed new coach Willie Desjardins as well. "He skates well, he has opened up ice well," Desjardins said. "He hasn’t looked out of place. But I think you could say that about Bo Horvat as well. He hasn’t looked out of place, either. Our lineup should be hard to crack, it should be tough for young guys to get in and the good thing is these guys are pushing hard and they are making the choices hard." Jensen was the Cancuks first round pick in 2011 and will get his first real chance to impress this season. We think he should be on the waiver wire to start the season.
Oct 4 - 10:26 AM

Nicklas Jensen scored the game-winning goal in Vancouver's 3-1 preseason win over Calgary.

Jensen now has two preseason goals in two games. He's a bit of a long shot to make the team's opening game roster, but it's still a possibility.

Nicklas Jensen will likely move down the depth charts in Vancouver after playing some on the top line at the tail end of the 2013-14 season.

Jensen will likely lose his spot on the wing to Radim Vrbata, who the Canucks signed in the offseason from Phoenix but he could line up on the second unit with Nick Bonino and Alex Burrows. The talented offensive player had three goals in four games near the end of last season playing with Burrows and Henrik Sedin so he has some offensive upside if he is a top-six forward. Stay tuned.
Sep 7 - 8:49 AM

John Tortorella's decision to bench Canucks winger Nicklas Jensen has produced criticisms from Vancouver Province columnist Tony Gallagher.

Gallagher asks, "What's the deal with benching Nicklas Jensen? A week ago he was the second coming of Rocket Richard, and we presume a mistake somewhere along the way got him bumped to the fourth line on Wednesday. Further, we presume something else he did Thursday got him put on the bench for the last 25 minutes of the game. For the past two games he hasn’t played a moment with Alex Burrows, with whom he had developed considerable chemistry along with Henrik Sedin. With the captain injured, you would think Burrows and Jensen might still play together, but you’d be wrong with this staff. And here we thought Tortorella was good with young players. We were wrong. Putting a player like Jensen on the fourth line is just plain setting up the kid for failure. It’s goofy stupid. Hate to break the news to these guys, but the season is over and you need to get some youth into this lineup if you want any fans coming to these games next season. . ."

Recent call-up Nicklas Jensen snapped a scoreless tie 6:06 into the third period to lead the Canucks to a 2-0 win against the Nashville Predators on Wednesday night at Rogers Arena.

It was Jensen's third goal in four games, and his fifth point in seven games since being called up from the American Hockey League and put on the top line. Defenseman Alexander Edler scored the other goal for the Canucks, while Henrik Sedin registered two assists in the victory.

Nicklas Jensen produced a goal in Sunday's 4-3 shootout win over Florida.

He has scored in consecutive games and has three points in five NHL outings this campaign. He is currently playing on a line with Henrik Sedin and Alex Burrows.
Mar 17 - 11:49 AM

Nicklas Jensen scored his first NHL goal in the Canucks’ 4-3 loss to the Caps on Friday night.

The 21 year old first round pick from 2011 has strong offensive ability (he scored 116 points in 122 OHL games). The Canucks hope this is the first of many to come for the young Dane.
