  • Capitals' Nick Jensen: Game-time call

    Jensen (lower body) will be a game-time decision Monday versus the Senators, according to Bailey Johnson of The Washington Post.

However, Jensen was able to return for the start of the second period and finished the game. He has earned eight assists, 50 shots on goal and 85 blocked shots in 56 games this season.

  • Capitals' Nick Jensen: Secures helper in narrow win

    Jensen recorded an assist in Saturday's 4-3 win over the Canadiens.

    Jensen almost assuredly will fail to improve on his prior season's point total for the first time in four years. Eight helpers represent his output through 53 games, but Jensen hasn't missed a single contest this season, and the no-frills defenseman has an outside chance at setting a new career high in blocked shots, having already posted 78 of those in 2023-24.

  • Capitals' Nick Jensen: Snaps scoring drought

    Jensen registered an assist and added two shots during Thursday's 5-4 shootout loss to the Stars.

    The helper snapped a 12-game point drought for Jensen, who has struggled mightily with just three assists and a minus-2 rating in 23 games this season. The Capitals signed the 33-year-old defender to a three-year, $12.15 million contract extension in February, which indicates that they have plenty of faith in him, but Jensen is a negligible fantasy asset at the moment.

  • Capitals' Nick Jensen: Three blocks in 500th career game

    Jensen played 19:24 and blocked three shots in Wednesday's 4-3 overtime win over the Sabres.

    It was a big game for Jensen, as it was his 500th NHL game. However, he's fallen off the cliff after a 29-point season in 2022-23 and has just two assists in 15 contests this season. Jensen does get his body in lanes, though, so he will likely give you a 120-block, 100 PIM season, which could be helpful depending on your fantasy league's format.

  • Capitals' Nick Jensen: Tallies helper

    Jensen registered an assist and added two shots while logging 15:39 of ice time during Sunday's 3-1 win over the Sharks.

    Jensen's assist on Dylan Strome's game-tying goal early in the third period snapped a seven-game scoring drought. The 33-year-old missed most of the preseason due to a personal matter but may finally be shaking the rust off following a long offseason. At any rate, more consistent production is needed from the Minnesota native before fantasy managers should take notice.

He can be considered day-to-day ahead of Friday's game versus the Blues.
