2007-08: Nick Jensen played for Rogers High School in Minnesota.
2008-09: Jensen's first season with USHL Green Bay Gamblers. Posted 22 points in 52 games. Led the league in plus/minus.
2009-10: Jensen spent another season in the USHL with Green Bay. The blueliner scored 6 goals and 21 assists for 27 points in 53 regular season games. He registered 2 goals, 6 assists for 8 points in 12 postseason appearances. He was named to the 2010 USHL All-Star game.
2010-11: Jensen’s freshmen season at St. Cloud State was by all standards a success. He was able to put up 5 goals and 18 assists for 23 points in 38 games in his first year of college hockey.
2011-12: Jensen was the third-leading scorer for Saint Cloud State as a sophomore. He scored 6 goals with 26 assists in 39 games. Jensen's plus-14 was the second-best plus/minus on a Huskies team that struggled to stay above .500 most of the season; finishing sixth in the competitive WCHA. After sweeping Nebraska-Omaha in the first round of the playoffs, the Huskies suffered a season-ending loss to North Dakota in the Final Five quarterfinal.
Jensen plays the game in a textbook way, making good decisions. He has good offensive instincts with the puck and is a good skater. Quick enough to recover when he pinches up.
Jensen will return to St. Cloud State University in 2012-13 to play his junior year, while also playing big minutes.
