June 2016 – After having 117 points in 108 QMJHL game, the Ducks loaned Sörensen to the SHL to gain experience and play with faster, bigger men. Adapting to the professional game has been tough for Sörensen as he has only been able to play in 51 games (out of 104) due to injury. When he has been in the line-up, he is a contributor even when his name is not on the score sheet because he possesses a very smart 200-foot game. He has good speed to breakout along the walls and soft hands. With the Ducks needing some forward depth, look for him to get a long look at training camp and move back over to North America.

December 2015 – The 2013 2nd round draft pick of the Anaheim Ducks is currently playing for Linköping HC in the Swedish Hockey League. Sörensen has three goals, seven assists (10 points), and an even plus/minus rating in the 19 games he has appeared in. The speed and physicality of playing professional hockey has factored into the drop off in Sörensen’s point production since leaving the Québec Remparts of the QMJHL. The 21 year-old still has a tremendous upside for the Ducks, but has been constantly battling injuries in the recent years. If he can stay healthy for the whole year, the Ducks should be able to get a better gauge on whether or not he is ready to make the jump to North America next season. Bryan Puffer
October 2014 – Nick Sörensen continues to sit out with an injury. It is reported that he will be out three months after he had surgery to take care of a nagging injury previously. Sorensen has started to gain a reputation as a band-aid boy although he is still a top-end talent. He is currently in the SHL with Skelleftea. –Kevin Won
May 2014 – The Anaheim Ducks have loaned out Nick Sörensen to Skelleftea of the SHL. After spending three years in junior, it appears that Sorensen elected to spend one year in the Swedish Hockey League.
April 2014 – Nick Sörensen has been signed to a three-year entry level contract with the Anaheim Ducks.
March 2014 – Nick Sörensen has had an incredibly strong playoffs so far, posting nine points in four games, including a five-point night on March 22nd in Game Two against the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies. This is a continuation of the strong finish he had in the regular season, by scoring 13 points (eight goals and five assists) in the final six games. –Kevin Won
March 2014 – Nick Sörensen has finished the year with 61 points (31 goals and 30 assists) in 44 games. Sörensen’s skills and skating have improved a lot, and this combination is rather intriguing. He will be battling it out for the QMJHL title in the playoffs later this month. –Kevin Won
December 2013– Sörensen has started the year off strong with 27 points (13 goals and 14 assists) in 19 games. Four of his goals have been game winners and he has only been held pointless in three games. He was also named to Sweden’s World Junior selection camp earlier in the week. Last season he also participated in the World Junior Championships for Sweden with whom he won a Silver Medal. However, there is a bit of concern as he missed six games with a concussion and is starting to become a band-aid boy. When healthy, he has proven that he can play at a high level with the Ramparts –Kevin Won
June 2013 – Sörensen enters the 2013 draft as one of the elder statesmen of the eligible crop. He struggled upon arriving in North America in his first QMJHL campaign due to injury and entered the 2012-13 season as a wild card for the draft. Sörensenowns quick feet, soft hands and a strong hockey sense, the latter quality makes him quite versatile. He is used in all situations and because he is a fairly aggressive forward, Sörensen has really branded himself as a quality penalty killer. Moving forward, Sörensen will need to add strength to a healthy frame and focus on conditioning to avoid being labelled as a band-aid boy. The Danish born Swede tallied 20 goals and 47 points in 46 games for the Quebec Remparts in 2012-13. Brendan Ross
