During the Finland/Denmark game in the World Championships, Ray Ferraro spoke about Rangers prospect Nicklas Jensen and what was expected of him in Vancouver.

Ferraro said that the expectation in Vancouver was that with Jensen's speed and shot he would be able to score and while he did score a few "eye catching goals he was never able to get a long enough opportunity to see if he was an NHL player."

Ferraro added that Jensen has a "big league shot" and that Jensen could be a fit for the Rangers as they look for young/cheap bodies.
