It has been a rough season for Henderson. He started the campaign off nursing an injury and has never really been able to recapture last season’s success that saw him earn his first career NHL recall and goal. Last season he played 67 games, scored 29 points (17 goals, 12 assists), 24 penalty minutes, and a plus/minus of +13. This season he has played in 50 games, produced 14 points (7 goals, 7 assists), recorded 14 penalty minutes, and has a plus/minus of -3. In total with the Admirals he has played 147 games, picked up 54 points (28 goals, 26 assists), 50 penalty minutes, and a plus/minus of +11.
The new addition to the Admirals, Francis Wathier, has spent his entire professional career in the Stars organization. He has played in 10 games with the Dallas Stars – never recording more than 5 penalty minutes in his time up in the NHL. The 29-year old from Ontario has played in 492 career games in the AHL. During his time in this league he has amassed 185 points (87 goals, 98 assists), 639 penalty minutes, and a plus/minus of -17.
I strongly encourage fans to wish Kevin “Hendo” Henderson the very best via Twitter.
