2009-10: Nick Sorensen, a Danish-born dual citizen of Denmark and Sweden, joined the Rogle BK club and skated for its U18 and U16 teams after playing youth hockey in the Malmo organization. He scored 13 goals with 10 assists in 15 games during the qualifying portion of the season and was Rogle's leading scorer in South Division Allsenskan play – scoring 9 goals with 7 assists and finishing minus-four with 12 penalty minutes in 15 games. He was scoreless and plus-one in two playoff games. Sorensen had 16 goals with 4 assists in eight games for Rogle's U16 team.
2010-11: Sorensen made his pro hockey debut as a 16-year-old, playing six games with Rogle in Sweden's second league (Allsvenskan), and was the leading goal-scorer for Rogle U20 in his second season in Angelholm. He had no points and 2 penalty minutes in limited ice time with the Rogle men's team. Sorensen scored 18 goals, seven of which came in Top 8 play, and had 11 assists in 30 games for Rogle U20. He did not play in Rogle's three game playoff series with Frolunda. Sorensen played 10 games for Rogle's U18 team, including four playoff games, and scored 8 goals with 3 assists. He was selected by Quebec in the first round (20th overall) of the 2011 CHL Import Draft.
2011-12: Sorensen was off to a fast start for Quebec in his first season in North America before suffering a season-ending knee injury after a knee-to-knee hit by Baie-Comeau's Jonathan Lessard in October. In eight QMJHL games with the Remparts he scored 5 goals with 4 assists and was plus-nine.
2012-13: Sorensen bounced back from his knee injury to skate in 46 games for Quebec in his second season and won a silver medal skating for Sweden at the 2013 U20 World Junior Championship. The Remparts traded Tampa Bay prospect Nikita Kucherov rather than Sorensen to get under the QMJHL's import limit. Sorensen scored 20 goals with 27 assists and was plus-10 with 18 penalty minutes. The Remparts finished third in the East Division and reached the second round in the playoffs; falling to Kucherov and Rouyn-Noranda in five games. Sorensen was minus-one with no points and 2 penalty minutes in six games for Sweden at the WJC. He played in the CHL/NHL Top Prospects Game and was ranked 48th amongst North American skaters in Central Scouting's final rankings prior to the 2013 NHL Draft.
A two-way player who works hard on the ice, Sorensen is perhaps a step behind when it comes to his development due to missed time with injuries. Healthy now, he shows no ill effects and no trepidation on the ice. Although not the strongest player, he doesn't shy away from working hard in the corners and driving the net. A great skater, Sorensen is a playmaker first and foremost but also has an accurate shot that he can get off quickly. Just as important is his dedication to his own end, where he hustles hard to back check and help out his defensemen. Sorensen may never be a top offensive talent, but if he can get stronger and continue to work hard, he's on the road to being a strong contributor at both ends of the ice.
Sorensen continued to have a nice linear arc to his development and was a point-per-game player in his second year with the Quebec Remparts. He also responded well to the awkward and probably frustrating situation of Quebec being one play over the import limit in the CHL due to the lockout. This situation caused Sorensen to miss games not due to playing quality but simply due to things out of his control. Sorensen will probably return to Quebec for 2013-14, and all signs point to him being on the cusp of a potential breakout in his final years of junior.
