7th year veteran center T.J. Hensick(28) returns to North American hockey after a half season away in the SHL with MODO.
He was released by the team after under-producing on the score sheet.
Signed to an AHL contract by Abbotsford Heat but then claimed off waivers by Hartford Wolf Pack, his last two pro years were spent with Peoria Rivermen, under a 2-way contract with St. Louis Blues.
The 5’9″ 195 lbs. forward was originally a Colorado Avalanche 3rd round pick in the 2005 draft (#88 overall) and played three seasons with the team and in their system.
He’s played 112 NHL games scoring 12 goals and 24 assists, last appearing in the league in 2012 with the Blues.
The 28-year old has skated in 332 minor league games with impressive numbers: 103 goals and 246 assists, making him more than a point-per-game player.
He had impressive numbers through his college career at University Of Michigan, winning a national championship in 2005 and being named a Hobey Baker Award finalist in two of his four season.
Where he goes next year is up for grabs but his contributions with his new team are already being noticed.
