Going into the 2nd year of his three-year entry level contract (2008 draft, round 3 #82 overall), Adam Henrique(17) skated his entire rookie season with Albany. That is until the last game of the season, when he was called up to New Jersey to see some action. He was called-up a couple of other times but was a healthy scratch.
He scored a healthy 25 goals to go along with 25 assists in the AHL and looks impressive enough to land a spot. The only problem is the team has a good amount of depth at the center position, although their is that lingering void that veteran Travis Zajac leaves open as he recovers from his very recent Achilles tendon surgery.
