The 2010-2011 season saw Henrique start the season on the Devils roster in a paper transaction, and finish the season as
an emergency callup for the last game of the season against the Boston Bruins... which he was heavily involved in;
seemed like every time he was out on the ice, I knew it because I heard his name get called.
When he was drafted, he was on an already-deep Windsor Spitfires team (which had included Taylor Hall), so his
numbers weren't what they would become (nor what many hoped). He would score 30-plus goals the following two
seasons to go with being on 2 consecutive Memorial Cup winners with the Spitfires. During the second championship
run, he scored 20 goals between the OHL playoffs and the Memorial Cup tournament, coupled with earning himself the
Wayne Gretzky 99 Award for OHL playoff MVP.
And I already mentioned the start and finish of his first pro season. What I didn't mention yet was in between, where he
lead the Albany Devils in goals with 25, and was second in points with 50.
He's got a lot of offensive skill, but he's also sound defensively, a thing not uncommon for Devils' scouts to look for, and
plays a smart game.
... With ice water in his veins, too, apparently, for those of us that remember the 2012 playoffs and him getting two
series winning goals, both in overtime. (Just don't put him in the Hall of Fame for that goal against the Rangers.)
He did experience a sophomore slump in the shortened season after being a finalist for the Calder Trophy. He was still
given a long-term deal come free agency time, and has been back on course since.
