History

2004-05: Henegan was in and out of Shawinigan’s line-up as a rookie. He suited up in 45 games, netting 1 goal and 3 assists for 4 points to go along with 50 PIM’s

2005-06: Henegan felt much more comfortable in his second go around through the QMJHL. He piled up a whopping 200 PIM’s in 68 games with the Cataractes and became a feared fighter throughout the league.

2006-07: Henegan adapted relatively smoothly to the position change from defense to forward, and even contributed a few points on the way. Henegan started the season in Shawinigan before being dealt to Victoriaville in late December, where he even showed a few flashes of offense, putting up 10 points in 28 games. For the season, Henegan finished with five goals and 13 assists in 59 games and posted 136 PIM’s, down from the 200 he recorded the previous season.

Talent Analysis
While Henegan’s imposing physical stature is his best asset, it also can be somewhat of a hindrance in terms of overall mobility. Henegan must work on improving his all-around foot speed and show the Devils that he can be more than just an enforcer. The Devils know he can scrap with the best of them, but in order for Henegan to forge out a career in the NHL, he must become more well-rounded, especially with the way the NHL game is played now.
Future
Henegan has the size and ability to possibly be an enforcer in the NHL one day, but he’ll need to keep on improving in other aspects of this game while in junior before he gets that opportunity.
