Season Grade: Adam Henrique

Adam Henrique had his best offensive season since his rookie season of 2011-12.  It was the second time in his career that he reached 50 points, and the first time in his career that he reached 30 goals.  Those 30 goals were tied for first on the Devils, and the 50 points placed him second on the Devils in total points.  The 25 year old had a very encouraging season.  His previous two seasons were weird seasons.  One season he would score 27 goals and put up only 18 assists, and the next season saw his goal totals drop to 16, but his assists totals jump to 27.  It was good to see him reach 30 goals, as that’s not something that is easy in today’s NHL.  It was a great season for Henrique, as he played in all situations for the Devils.  Let’s take a look at his numbers and season below.

It was a pretty solid season for Henrique, as you can see by his numbers.  He played in all situations for the Devils, and played decent minutes.  He lead all Devils forwards in ice time on the penalty kill, and trailed only Palmieri for the most power play ice time.  He ranked second among Devils forwards in even strength ice time, and was first among Devils forward in all situations.  John Hynes relied heavily on Henrique this season, and rightfully so.  All things considering, his CF% Rel was decent. 

Henrique had some cold streaks this year, his longest being 11 and 7 games without scoring a goal.  He put up 4 assists in the 11 game streak, and 1 assists in the 7 game streak.  One thing to point out is that Henrique’s shooting percentage was a career high at 20.1%.  I would be shocked if Henrique repeated that feat next year, but we will just have to see.

Season Grade: B+

I gave Kyle Palmieri an A yesterday,  and I think his season was just a little better than Henrique’s.  Adam was a leader for the Devils, and was one of two players to reach 30 goals and 50 points.  It was hard to not give Henrique an A as well, but the cold streaks were the deciding factor.  His point totals would’ve been better if he was more consistent this year.  His assists totals were also low.  I’m curious to see what his season will look like next year.  The last time his shooting percentage was close to 20.1%, his goal totals fell the next season.  When it comes down to it, Henrique was one of the most important players on the Devils last season, and will continue to be for the foreseeable future.
