Jr. | F | New Canaan, Conn.

Jensen shared the Yale lead in scoring last season, and the Bulldogs are looking for even more from him as a junior.


Key Statistics: Jensen tied for the team lead in scoring last year (11-19—30) with fellow sophomore Joe Zappala. Classmate Jeff Hristovski was one point behind that duo as the three sophomores took up the bulk of the scoring load when Chris Higgins left school to join the Montreal Canadiens.

What He Does: Through two seasons in New Haven, Jensen is one of the ECAC's most efficient point producers. He had 25 points in his rookie campaign and increased his output last year, leading the team in assists. His skating and puckhandling on the wing are a good fit for Yale’s attacking style of play.

The Bigger Picture: Jensen is one of the most driven players in the Yale program. After growing up in Connecticut and attending the Taft School, he deferred his enrollment to Yale so that he could play a year of hockey in Sweden in the Super Elite Junior League. While there, he kept a journal on the training techniques of Swedish players and learned the nuances of the international game.

Yale associate head coach CJ Marottolo on Jensen: “I’m still hoping that he’s going to climb the ladder and continue to grow as a complete hockey player. That junior class is a class that we’re going to look for to continue to produce for us.”
