The New York Rangers have acquired Nicklas Jensen and a 2017 sixth-round pick in exchange for Emerson Etem.

The common thread between Jensen and Etem is that they're former first-round picks that haven't worked out. Jensen is arguably the bigger disappointment though because the 22-year-old has played in 24 NHL games to Etem's 131. The Rangers weren't using Etem much though and they couldn't send him to the minors for more than a conditioning stint without exposing him to waivers, but Jensen can play in the AHL for now.
Jan 8 - 5:24 PM

Nicklas Jensen and Bobby Sanguinetti are scratched from Sunday's tilt with the New York Islanders.

Sanguinetti has barely cracked the NHL since being drafted in the first round back in 2006, but there isn't much more fantasy value in Jensen at this time. He has just six points in 24 career NHL games, compared to 45 points in 112 AHL games.

The Vancouver Canucks recalled forward Nicklas Jensen from the AHL on Saturday.

This leaves Jensen available for Sunday's road game against the New York Islanders, if the Canucks choose to go in that direction. Jensen hasn't scored a point in five games this season after generating six in 17 contests in 2013-14.

Nicklas Jensen has been reassigned to the minors.

He doesn't have a point in five games with the Canucks this season. Jensen has six goals and 11 points in 15 AHL contests.

Nicklas Jensen could return to the Vancouver lineup on Sunday if Shawn Matthias is unable to go.

Matthias may have been concussed on Saturday after taking an elbow to his head, courtesy of Stephane Robidas. He has missed the last four games as a healthy scratch after being recalled on November 29th from the minors.

Nicklas Jensen is a healthy scratch in Thursday's game against Pittsburgh.

This will be Jensen's fourth consecutive game as a healthy scratch. The 21-year-old has no points in three games this season. Frank Corrado is also a healthy scratch for the Canucks.

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

Frank Corrado will also be a healthy scratch for the Canucks. Jensen was Vancouver's first round pick in 2011. He has no points in three games.

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.

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.

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.

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.
Fri, Sep 26, 2014 11:16:00 AM

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.
