    Sarah – enjoy your comments about our son Nick Jensen – Back home here he is already a hockey legend at the young age of 22. He grew up playing youth hockey in Elk River Minnesota home of Paul Martin of the Pitts. Penquins and retired pro Joel Otto. My wife is from Flint and Nick has alot of family in the great state of MI, playing for Detroit has always been a dream for Nick and he prepared to pay any price to make that happen.

    Mr. Jensen!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog! I think Nick will be a cornerstone of the organization for years to come. Tell him I look forward to interview him for a feature at the July development camp. Looking forward to him becoming a Red Wing. Thanks for the support and the comment.
