RALEIGH, NC—Ron Francis, Assistant General Manager and Director of Player Development for the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that team has reassigned forward Joe Jensen to the Albany River Rats of the American Hockey League. Jensen was recalled on Monday and made his NHL debut yesterday afternoon in the Hurricanes’ game at Prudential Center against the New Jersey Devils, skating 7:37 of ice time.

Jensen, 24, was acquired by the Hurricanes on Jan. 31 from the Pittsburgh Penguins in exchange for David Gove. In 33 AHL games this season with Albany and Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, Jensen has totaled two goals, two assists (4 points) and 27 penalty minutes. Jensen (5’11’’, 180 lbs.) has also played in nine games with the Wheeling Nailers of the ECHL this season, earning seven points (4g, 3a). The Plymouth, MN, native is in his second professional season, and has scored eight goals and earned seven assists (15 points) in 59 career AHL games. He has 15 goals and 21 assists (36 points) in 37 career ECHL games.

Jensen played four years of collegiate hockey at St. Cloud State University of the Western Collegiate Hockey Association before turning professional. In 153 career games with the Huskies, Jensen scored 45 goals, earned 55 assists (100 points) and accumulated 100 penalty minutes.
