History

2008-09: The large winger played scored 7 goals with 12 assists in his first season with Val d'Or (QMJHL). Two of his five goals came on the power play and he finished +5 with 26 PMs. Henley played for Team Quebec at the U-17 World Hockey Challenge and had 1 goal  with 5 assists in five games.

2009-10: Henley was limited to 44 regular season games due to injury in his second season with Val d'Or. He scored 5 goals with 7 assists and was -8 with 43 minutes during the regular season. In six playoff games for the Foreurs he was scoreless and -3 with 6 PMs.

2010-11: Henley got off to a fast start in his third season with Val d'Or, posting points in seven of his first twelve games, before suffering a wrist injury in October that required surgery and kept him out of the lineup until late February. In 22 regular season contests, he had 5 goals with 12 assists and was +5 with 26 PMs.  In the Foreurs four-game playoff loss to the Quebec Remparts he was scoreless and -4 with 6 PMs.

Talent Analysis

Henley is a talented left winger with power forward size. He has earned the dreaded “injury prone” title after missing more than 50% of his team’s games in his four QMJHL seasons. Henley can be a dangerous player offensively and he plays with an edge so he has pro potential but with only one more year of junior hockey left he will have little time to prove it.

 

Future

Henley was not signed by the Sabres and was not chosen at the 2012 NHL Draft.  He is now a free agent.

The Buffalo Sabres needed a facelift at the 2010 NHL Draft. Once a high-flying scoring machine, the Sabres never adequately addressed the departures of co-captains Chris Drury and Danny Briere in 2007. With a potential franchise defenseman in Tyler Myers and the emergence of Ryan Miller as an elite goaltender, the Sabres nevertheless decided that they needed to re-tool from the back end out. It was a strange move, given that the team’s 207 goals allowed in 2009-10 season were the fewest in seven years—a big reason why they managed to capture a division title after failing to make the playoffs in the two previous seasons.
