Mike Babcock has been impressed with the play of some of his young defensemen, especially Nick Jensen.

"Jensen, to tell you the truth, coming into camp, I didn’t know-I knew who he was, I’d seen him play and all that, but didn’t know-he’s been very good, too." The 24-year-is entering his second pro season after playing four years at St. Cloud State University. Even if he does crack Detroit’s line-up, he isn’t a good bet to score many points. Jensen registered nine assists in 45 games with Grand Rapids in the AHL last season.

The performance by Jensen might be the surprise of training camp, as it didn't take him long to get on Babcock's radar.
