Allan Raymond Jensen (born November 27, 1958 in Hamilton, Ontariocite book|title=The Canadian Hockey Atlas|first=Stephen|last=Cole|publisher=Doubleday Canada|year=2006|id=ISBN 978-0-385-66093-8 (0-385-66093-6)] is a former Canadian ice hockey goaltender.

Selected 31st overall by the Detroit Red Wings in the 1978 NHL Entry Draft, Jensen only played one game for the Red Wings before he was traded to the Washington Capitals in July 1981 in exchange for Mark Lofthouse. It was with the Capitals that he was given the chance to blossom into a starting goaltender, and would help guide the team to its first playoff appearance in the 1982-83 NHL season. The next season Jensen would achieve even more as he was a co-winner of the William M. Jennings Trophy with teammate Pat Riggin.

Jensen would play almost six seasons with the Capitals before he was traded to the Los Angeles Kings in the middle of the 1986-87 NHL season in exchange for defenseman Garry Galley. He would play one season with the New Haven Nighthawks of the AHL before retiring from active professional play.

In 179 NHL games, Jensen posted a 95-53-18 regular season record.

Currently Al Jensen has served in the Southern Counties area as the head goaltending scout for the NHL's central scouting. He has completed 6 years as a pro scout and is continuing for a couple more seasons.
