Nicklas Jensen, the 29th pick of the 2011 NHL Entry Draft, has been returned to the Oshawa Generals by the Vancouver Canucks.
Perhaps the most pleasant surprise from this year’s Canucks camp, the six-foot-three, 187-pound forward impressed Canucks brass, sharing the team lead in preseason points with three alongside Jordan Schroeder and NHL veteran Marco Sturm. The Canucks dressed few regulars throughout the preseason, with both Henrik and Daniel Sedin playing just one game.
Vancouver was so impressed with the Herning, Denmark native that they inked him to a three-year, entry-level contract after his first preseason game, in which he recorded a goal and an assist.
In 61 games in his first season in the Ontario Hockey League, Jensen scored 29 goals and 48 points.
