Video- Off Day Notes And Coach Blashill After Practice Today

02/21/2019 at 2:55pm EST

from Dana Wakiji of the Wings website,

At some point Thursday, Wings coach Jeff Blashill planned to pull defenseman Nick Jensen aside.

Jensen, along with goaltender Jimmy Howard and forward Gustav Nyquist, is one of the players in the middle of trade rumors as Monday's 3 p.m. deadline approaches.

"I've talked to Jense a little bit but I'm going to grab Jense today and see how he's doing and just make sure from a mental state that he's focusing on what he can control and that's his play," Blashill said.

Jensen, 28, would be an inexpensive option in terms of the salary cap for a team looking to add some depth on the blueline.

Jensen is in the final year of a two-year, $1.625 million contract.

"Obviously there's a little bit of that distraction in the back of your head but it's nothing that you can really control and anything that's out of my control, I tend not to focus on really," Jensen said. "I'm just focusing on playing hockey and one game at a time, one day at a time. That's the main focus for me right now."
