Jesper B. Jensen (born 30 July 1991), is a Danish professional ice hockey defenceman who currently plays for Finnish club, Jokerit of the Kontinental Hockey League (KHL). He was a member of the Denmark men's national ice hockey team for the 2011 IIHF World Championship. At just 19 years of age, he was the youngest member of the Danish team.

Having played all of his youth hockey with Rødovre as well as three seasons with Rødovre Mighty Bulls of the Danish Elite League, Jensen is regarded as one of the most talented defencemen to come out of Denmark in recent years, he was sought after by Rögle as well as Malmö Redhawks before deciding to join the Ängelholm team prior to the 2010–11 season.[1]

Playing style[edit]

Jensen is considered an all-round defenceman with an emphasis on defensive and physical play.[citation needed]
