March 2022- Despite seeing a few games with Arizona, Jenik has spent the majority of 2021-22 in Tucson. He’s been one of the club’s best players, so far putting up 15 goals and 35 points in 40 games. Jenik has been hot lately too with 10 points in his last eight games of action. Expect to see another call-up towards the end of this campaign and Jenik finish the year with Arizona. Keith Duggan

October 2021- An outside chance of making the Coyotes opening night roster, another year of AHL development won out and Jenik will begin 2021-22 with Tucson. He did impress Coyotes brass, though. “He had a great camp,” said Coyotes GM Bill Armstrong of Jenik. “You could certainly see the difference in his game with the added strength and I think he added a step in his skating. He has what we like in our culture with those first and second efforts and with that determination and grit that he has, he really brings an element to the game that we like. He’s got to go down to Tucson and continue to work on his game, make those small improvements to become an NHL player, but I like what I saw and again, he has taken good steps in the right direction.” Keith Duggan

May 2021- It was expected to be an adjustment year for Jenik after missing nearly a year with a injury and the COVID pandemic. Adjustment year would be the best way to classify it as the young forward went through an up and down campaign. After starting off the AHL season with a bang, five points in his first four games, he then had two points in his next 21 games. All before finishing the year with six points in his last four games, which included a call-up to the Coyotes where Jenik scored two goals in as many contests. While his offense struggled at times, Jenik still played his gritty game, hitting anything that moves, sticking up for teammates and getting under the skin of opponents. He finished 18th in penalty minutes with 50, third among AHL rookies. He’ll spend another year
