Quotes from Major Draft Guides

• "An offensive performer who needs to round out his game. Henry managed to stake out a key role with one of the strongest teams in the CHL. Has the skills, but needs to prove that he can create offense on his own." (McKeen's Draft Preview)

• "A goal scorer’s touch. Very good from inside the hash marks and around the net. Excellent shot with a good, quick release. Strong and competitive on the puck." (NHL Central Scouting Report)

• "Shorter than the average NHL forward and doesn’t possess great speed or dynamic puck skills, but when you can score more than a point-per-game as a WHL rookie and work your way into the top six, of what is perhaps the deepest offensive team in the CHL, scouts take a notice. Smart, and can score goals." (Recrutes.ca)

• "Top-end speed and quickness is average and not a strength of his game. His lack of quickness also hurts his ability to forecheck, and he did not spend much time on the penalty-kill this season. ... Strong on his skates and his stick which allows him to compete and win battles in tight areas." (HockeyProspect.com Black Book)

• "Has a knack for arriving on the scene at the perfect moment. Gets extra zip on his passes to thread them through tight spaces. Uses lower-core strength to crash the net hard, picking up rebounds. Focused and determined." (Red Line Report)
