  • Capitals' Nick Jensen: Lends helping hand in win

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/6/19) Jensen posted an assist in Wednesday's 5-3 win over Philadelphia.

    The assist was Jensen's first point in his last eight appearances and moved him to 16 in 65 games this season. The 28-year-old blueliner also recorded a team-high five shots on goal in the win.

    Capitals' Nick Jensen: To debut for Washington on Sunday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/23/19) Jensen will make his Capitals debut Sunday versus the Rangers, per coach Todd Reirden.

    The Capitals acquired Jensen from the Red Wings on Friday in exchange for Madison Bowey and a 2020 second-round draft pick. Also, in a somewhat surprising move, the Caps bestowed a four-year, $10 million contract extension on the 28-year-old later that day. The defending Stanley Cup champions seem to already appreciate Jensen's relentless work ethic and gamer mentality. However, the Capitals will keep him out of Saturday's contest against the Sabres in order to get him more acquainted with his new team.

    Capitals' Nick Jensen: Secures four-year extension

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/22/19) The Capitals inked Jensen to a four-year, $10 million contract extension Friday, Frank Seravalli of TSN.ca reports.

    Although some felt the Capitals slightly overpaid for the blueliner, his no-frills attitude should be a boon to a team that needs to defend its title. Jensen will stay in D.C. through at least the 2022-23 campaign, bringing along his 15 points through 60 games this season. Jensen will likely move into a depth role for a more talented Caps squad, consequently limiting his fantasy upside.

    Capitals' Nick Jensen: Shipped to Caps

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/22/19) The Red Wings traded Jensen to the Capitals on Friday in exchange for Madison Bowey and a second-round pick in the 2020 NHL Entry Draft, Darren Dreger of TSN reports.

    Jensen's name floated around as the Red Wings have quickly slid away from playoff contention, and the Capitals certainly weren't shy about wanting to increase their defensive depth ahead of Monday's trade deadline. The 28-year-old defender should be able to displace Christian Djoos on the depth chart, however, his fantasy value is not likely to see an improvement as he moves to more of a depth role with the Capitals.

    Red Wings' Nick Jensen: Pair of helpers in win

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/13/19) Jensen finished Tuesday's 3-2 win over Nashville with two assists.

    The stay-at-home blueliner has now collected four helpers over his past five games and sits at 15 points through 56 games in 2018-19. Finishing tied for the team lead with three blocked shots, the 28-year-old was also a force defensively in Tuesday's win.
