Cranbrook, B.C. – The Kootenay ICE Hockey Club have acquired defenceman Jordan Henderson from the Medicine Hat Tigers in exchange for a conditional sixth round draft pick in 2019.
The 1997-born Henderson has played three seasons in the WHL. The Vancouver native recorded six goals and 27 points in 61 games with Spokane, Saskatoon and Medicine Hat during the 2016-17 season. During his 26 regular season games with the Tigers, Henderson collected five goals and 19 points while being a +29.
“Jordan is a veteran defenceman who had a very strong finish to his 19-year-old season,” said Matt Cockell, President and General Manager. “He skates well, brings energy to the room and we think he will have an opportunity to earn an enhanced role with the ICE.”
Henderson – listed as six feet tall and 180 pounds – was a fourth round (72nd overall) draft pick by Spokane in 2012.
