Nick Jensen’s steady play could earn extension from Red Wings - MLive
ICYMI prior to the weekend, Ansar wasn’t done doing Ken’s trade deadline PR work with just Nyquist and Howard, so he had to point out that Jensen is another pending FA who is definitely worth another contract in Detroit and should be treated as such in trade discussion.
Ok, I’m sorry that was too cynical. Truth be told I’ve really liked Jensen’s play this season and I wouldn’t mind a follow-on deal for him. Story includes some nice praise from Jimmy and Blashill.
