Player Review: Adam Henrique
By Mario Ramirez
The 2018-19 season was one of the toughest seasons for the Ducks franchise in their 25-year history; they finished the season at 35-37-10. They failed to make the playoffs for the first time since the 2011-12 season. GM Bob Murray replaced Randy Carlyle for the last third of the season. Part of Murray’s rationale for taking over behind the bench was to see which players were going to be part of the solution going forward.

Adam Henrique finished the 2018-19 season with a stat line of GP 82, G 18, A 24, P 42 and a minus 5 on-ice rating. He also sported a 52.8% faceoff win percentage and had three game-winning goals. Henrique was very close to his career averages in most statistical categories despite the disappointing season for the Ducks. Henrique was a stabilizing presence in the Ducks lineup this past season that had its fair share of injuries again. Night in and night out GMHC Bob Murray could pencil Henrique in the lineup. Henrique finished the season as the Ducks 4thleading scorer with 42 points and was 3rdin faceoff percentage. Henrique was one of the few positives for the Ducks this past season.
Moving forward Henrique seems to be one of the players GM Bob Murray sees as part of the solution. With his 5-year contract extension in hand, Henrique will hopefully help fill some of the leadership role left by Cory Perry’s departure. Henrique is a very solid player that can handle a 2ndor 3rdline center role. His skill in the faceoff circle will be very important for the Ducks moving forward as the team looks to improve on their puck possession numbers. Henrique figures to be an important mentor for the Ducks next season as they infuse more youth into the lineup.
