History

2008-09: Boone Jenner was chosen in the first round, 4th overall, of the 2009 OHL Priority Selection by the Oshawa Generals.

2009-10: In his OHL rookie season, Jenner appeared in 65 games for the Generals. He scored 19 goals and added 30 assists for 49 points to go along with 91 penalty minutes. Jenner was named to the OHL's First All-Rookie Team. Jenner played for Team Ontario at the 2010 World U-17 Hockey Challenge, scoring 1 goals and adding 3 assists for 4 points in 6 games for the silver medal winners.

2010-11: In 63 games for the Generals, Jenner scored 25 goals and added 41 assists for 66 points along with 57 penalty minutes. In 10 playoff games, he scored 7 goals and added 5 assists for 12 points.  Jenner played for Team Orr at the 2011 CHL Home Hardware Top Prospects Game, picking up 2 assists in his team's 7-1 win over Team Cherry.

2011-12: Jenner had a “C” sown on to his jersey for the first time in Oshawa last year. He responded with 49 points in 43 games. He has 22 goals and 27 assists during the regular season and 11 more in only six playoff games. His plus 12 regular season rating and plus 10 playoff rating shows how well rounded the versatile center can play. In five games in the AHL he scored one goal and set up two playing for Canada’s U20 team in the World Junior Championship, but racked up 29 penalty minutes in five games.

2012-13: Jenner joined the AHL's Springfield Falcons in April following the Oshawa Generals' OHL playoff run. He scored 3 goals with 1 assist and was +1 in four regular season games. Springfield finished first in the Northeast Division and reached the second round in the playoffs. Jenner scored 2 goals with 3 assists and was -1 with 8 penalty minutes in eight playoff games. Serving as a captain for Oshawa in his fourth season, he was the Generals' leading scorer with 45 goals and 37 assists in 56 games and was +23 with 58 penalty minutes. Oshawa finished second in the East Division and reached the second round in the playoffs. Jenner scored 2 goals with 6 assists in nine playoff games and was -1 with 8 penalty minutes. He represented Canada at the 2013 World Junior Championship and was -2 with 2 penalty minutes in three games – missing the first three game due to a suspension for an illegal hit in a pre-tournament game. Canada finished fourth; falling to host Russia in the bronze medal game.

 

Talent Analysis

Jenner saved his best junior season for last as he finished on the All-OHL Third Team. The 6’1, 205-pound center finished his OHL career with 111 goals and 135 assists. He got his first taste for professional hockey with the Falcons, which is something that the offensively sound center will need to get used to after graduating from junior hockey.

 

Future

Jenner will have as good of a chance as anyone to see time with the Blue Jackets this season. He will start the year with the Falcons, but could see time playing center for Columbus.
