Playing career[edit | edit source]
Jensen was a talented college goalkeeper for the University of North Dakota, and won the NCAA Tournament with them.
Jensen was originally selected by the Hartford Whalers in the fifth round of the 1980 NHL Entry Draft. However, he did not sign, and in 1985 the Flyers signed him as a goalkeeper. He made his debut in the 1984–85 season, but only played in one game in which he got the loss, and was sent to the Hershey Bears for the remainder of the season.
In 1985, he replaced Pelle Lindbergh in goal after Lindbergh's death, and managed to win his first game of the season against the Edmonton Oilers. Along with Bob Froese, Jensen won the 1986 William M. Jennings Trophy.
He played in 30 NHL games, posting a 15–10–1 record with 2 shutouts and a 3.84 goals against average.
