Jensen signed a one-year, two-way deal with the Rangers on Tuesday, Dhiren Mahiban of The Canadian Press reports. Jensen was a prospect acquired via trade during the season and has yet to make an appearance for New York. The winger is likely to spend the bulk of the season in the minors where he netted 15 goals and 10 helpers during the 2015-16 campaign. Should the 23-year-old get called up, fantasy owners may want to keep one eye on his NHL production.
The Canucks traded Jensen and a 2017 sixth-round pick to the Rangers in exchange for Emerson Etem on Friday. Jensen, a former first-round pick, hasn't done much at the NHL level, tallying six points (three goals, three assists) in 24 career games with Canucks. The 22-year-old winger will report to AHL Hartford, and could work his way into a bottom-six role with the Rangers if he performs well enough in the minors.
