Flames acquire d henry from panthers for blueliner seabrook
The Calgary Flames acquired of defenceman Jordan Henry from the Florida Panthers in exchange for blueliner Keith Seabrook.
The Flames also announced that they signed Henry to a one-year, two-way contact worth $600,000.
"Jordan Henry is a two-way defenceman who plays with an edge to his game," Flames general manager Jay Feaster said. "He is a responsible and smart defender, yet he is also adept at joining the rush and pinching down the wall to support the offense. He is still a solid prospect and we viewed this trade as an opportunity to give two young players a new start with different organizations. We look forward to seeing Jordan compete with our other recent depth acquisitions for a spot in our top seven in camp."
Henry, a native of Milo, AB, played five seasons in the WHL with the Moose Jaw Warriors and the Red Deer Rebels. After completing his junior career, Henry signed as a free agent with the Panthers and split his first professional year between the Florida Everblades of the ECHL and the Rochester Americans in the AHL.
During his final campaign with Rochester (2009-10) he recorded 31 points and accumulated 104 penalty minutes in 76 games. Following three seasons in the AHL, Henry signed with Minsk Dynamo of the KHL for the 2010-11 season.
