Boone Jenner, C
Hometown: Dorchester, Ontario
Drafted: 2011 by Columbus, 37th overall
March 2014 – Jenner is enjoying a fairly successful rookie campaign for the Columbus Blue Jackets. In his first full season, Jenner finds himself on the top line playing alongside Ryan Johansen and Nick Foligno. Currently, Jenner has accumulated 21 points in 57 games. Considering his limited powerplay time (only three of his points have come on the PP), this is fairly productive. The lack of powerplay time causes a lack of total ice time as well – about 13 minutes per game. Jenner does enjoy throwing his body around though. He’s in the top five of his team in total hits with 167. Jenner is the space-creator on the top line. Chris Bagwell
April 2013 – Boone Jenner’s OHL season is done after his Oshawa Generals team was ousted in the second round of action in four straight games. Jenner’s two goals and eight points in nine playoff games was somewhat underwhelming as the two-way forward had difficulty finding consistency from game to game. The 2011 second round selection mustered up an impressive 45 goals and 82 points in only 56 games, setting new career highs in all offensive categories. He remains a must own asset in all fantasy keeper leagues and he should get the call up to the AHL to join the Springfield Falcons. Brendan Ross
February 2013 – Jenner was brought into camp by Columbus, but they felt his development was better served by sending him back to junior and continuing success there. This is a very smart move as it does not activate his entry level contract. Jason Banks
December 2012 -The OHL’s current leading goal scorer (27), Boone Jenner, is one of six returnees from last year’s bronze medal winning team invited to Canada’s National Junior camp in preparation for the 2013 World Junior Championships. As it looks right now, Jenner is most likely to lineup in a third-line role for Canada and is an almost guaranteed lock to make the final roster. Brendan Ross
October 2012 – Boone Jenner was named to the 2012 Subway Super Series Team OHL Roster slated to compete in a six-game series versus the Russian National Junior Team in November. Brendan Ross
October, 2012 – Jenner is off to a strong start to the 2012-13 OHL season as he leads the league in scoring after two weeks with 12 points through 5 games including a 4 goal, 8 point effort last week in three games. Brendan Ross
February 2012 – Boone Jenner is a very effective two-way forward and has had great success offensively at the junior level. The captain of the Oshawa Generals plays on their top line, but his skill set is more suited towards a supporting role at the NHL level. Jenner is a hard working type who is not afraid to play physical or even fight. Jenner has been lucky to play alongside other talented players like Nicklas Jensen and Christian Thomas. It remains to be seen if Jenner can be as effective a scorer with less talented linemates. Thomas Wall
Fantasy Outlook: B+
Jenner’s powerplay time is the main concern here. However, his presence on the top line is a nice positive. If the chemistry is maintained with Foligno and Jenner, expect Jenner to see more and more ice time, even possibly with the man advantage. He has great hands for a big guy as well. Jenner is a must-have for keeper leagues.
