ABBOTSFORD – Nicklas Jensen claims he isn't overly concerned about his scoring famine but maybe he should be.
The Vancouver Canucks' first-round pick in 2011 doesn't have a single goal this season in the American Hockey League. He's played 11 games for the Utica Comets since recovering from a training camp shoulder separation and all he's managed is two assists.
It's hardly the recipe for a callup if the need arises. If he is truly an elite prospect, he'll have to figure a way to get on the scoresheet – and stay there.
Jensen and the Comets are in Abbotsford this weekend to meet the Heat in a Friday-Saturday double dip at the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre. Game time both nights is 7 p.m. The Comets are in last place at 4-11-1-1 while the Heat are first at 17-5-0-1.
Abby may not be the easiest of opponents in which to snap a slump but that's what Jensen will be aiming...
