Player: Adam Henrich

Played with WBS Penguins: 2008-09

Where is he now? Playing for the Coventy Blaze in the British Elite Ice Hockey League.

Before joining the Penguins in 2008, Henrich, 29, was a solid prospect drafted in the second round by the Tampa Bay Lightning in 2002. After his junior career ended, Henrich spent the next four seasons bouncing between the AHL and ECHL. He appeared to hit his stride in 2007-08, when he scored 14 goals and 31 points in 43 games with the Norfolk Admirals.

The next season, he joined Wilkes-Barre/Scranton and couldn’t regain that scoring touch, posting only three goals in 37 games.

The following year Henrich left the Penguins and had a hard time finding a home. He played in five games with Springfield in the AHL, eight games for the Ontario Reign and two with Cincinnati (both in the ECHL), and finished the year with the Hamburg Freezers in Germany.

Henrich has spent the last four seasons overseas, playing in Germany, Italy and Britain. He has averaged better than a point per game at each stop, but the former second round pick never got an NHL game under his belt.
