The Red Wings have signed Nick Jensen to a two-year extension worth $1.625M ($812.5K AAV).
Jensen, 26, has impressed the Red Wings since being called up in mid-December. The American-born defenseman has three goals and five assists (eight points) in 27 games with the Red Wings after he had six points (1G / 5A) in 27 games with the Griffins. He is a really strong skater and should be part as the Red Wings’ top-6 next season.
The Red Wings have recalled Nick Jensen from Grand Rapids (AHL).
Jensen, 26, has been recalled to serve as an extra defenseman during the Red Wings’ three- game road trip. The 2009 fifth round pick has one goal and five assists (six points) in 27 games with the Griffins. Don’t expect him to make his NHL debut unless one of the Red Wings’ regular defensemen gets injured.
