The Regina Pats Hockey Club is pleased to announce that forward Nick Henry has been sent back to Regina by the NHL’s Colorado Avalanche.
Henry was drafted by the Avalanche in the fourth round of the 2017 NHL Entry Draft in Chicago.
The product of Portage la Prairie, MB appeared in his first NHL preseason game on Tuesday against the Vegas Golden Knights and recorded two shots on goal.
Henry is entering his 19-year-old season and in the previous two years, he has scored 49 goals and 110 points in 125 games. He is coming off a very successful Memorial Cup where he led the tournament with five goals and was tied for third in overall scoring with seven points.
With Henry’s return, two Pats remain away at NHL training camps, Cale Fleury (Montreal) and Max Paddock (San Jose).
