Fulfill your destiny and take your father's place at my side.

Vancouver announced this afternoon they have signed the 2011 first round pick Nicklas Jensen to an undisclosed deal (by which we mean capgeek will tell us shortly).

From the mothership:

Vancouver Canucks President & General Manager Mike Gillis announced today that the Canucks have signed forward Nicklas Jensen. Jensen, 18, has appeared in one NHL Pre-Season game in 2011.12, recording two points (1-1-2) en route to 4-3 Canucks win over the Calgary Flames on September 20 at Rogers Arena.

He spent the 2010.11 season with the Oshawa Generals, collecting 58 points (29-29-58) in 61 games played. In his first year in the OHL, he ranked fourth on the team in scoring and fifth in the OHL among rookies. Jensen tied for the team lead in goals (7) during the 2011 playoffs. On the international stage, Jensen helped Denmark win the Division I 2011 World Junior Championship. In 2009.10, the Herning, Denmark native recorded 26 points (12-14-26) in 34 games with Herning Blue Fox Denma.

That's quite the first impression from the second best Dane on the team. While he doesn't have the best chance to make the club this year (and at 18 why would you want him too anyway?), he currently ranks #2 in Hockey Future's list of Vancouver prospects, snuggled between Cody Hodgson (check the noon number) and Chris Tanev (check yesterday's noon number).

The kids are alright. Now all we need is a nickname for the guy. Hit the comments with your best (or worst, we won't tell).
