#6 Nick Jensen
Nick Jensen had a bounce back 2021 season thanks to being paired at the bottom with Zdeno Chara. Chara helped improve his game and the results speak for themselves. The Kraken messed up by not selecting Jensen according to all the rumors that are floating around right now.
Jensen had two goals and 12 assists for 14 points. He also had a 50.24 Corsi For percentage. Jensen was acquired from the Detroit Red Wings at the 2019 trade deadline and was signed to a contract extension immediately after. He will be part of the Caps blue line for the next few seasons unless the following rumor we’ll talk about is false.
But if the rumors are true the Kraken made a terrible mistake by not selecting Jensen. He carries a cap hit of $2.5 million.
