Jensen was recalled from AHL Hartford on Wednesday.

The call-up was necessitated by veteran winger Rick Nash tweaking his groin in Tuesday's game against the Islanders. Originally selected by the Canucks with the 29th overall pick in the 2011 draft, Jensen is a tall (6-foot-3) Danish forward who has picked up 15 points (eight goals, seven assists) in 21 games with the Wolf Pack this season. He's mobile for his size and capable of slotting in on either wing. Still, it's not often that newly promoted players slide into the top six right away, and Jensen doesn't figure to be the exception.
