Jordan Henry (born February 11, 1986) is a Canadian professional ice hockey defenceman currently playing for the Florida Everblades of the ECHL.

Playing career[edit]

Henry began his career playing for the Moose Jaw Warriors in the WHL for two seasons from 2003 to 2005. In the middle of the 2005–06 season, he was traded to play for the Red Deer Rebels for the remainder of the season. Prior to the 2006–07, as an undrafted free agent, Henry was invited to the Calgary Flames training camp, before returning to the Rebels for the remainder of the season.[1]

After completing his junior career, Henry was invited to and impressed at the Florida Panthers training camp for the 2007–08 season.[2] He was then assigned to ECHL affiliate, the Florida Everblades before signing a three-year entry level contract with the Panthers on October 8, 2007.[3] Jordan then split his first professional year between the Everblades and Rochester Americans, becoming an Amerks regular by seasons end.

On July 9, 2011, Henry was traded by the Panthers to the Calgary Flames for defenceman Keith Seabrook.[4]

On June 27, 2012, Henry, along with a 5th round draft pick, was traded by the Flames to the Washington Capitals in exchange for the rights to defenseman Dennis Wideman.[5] The Capitals declined to offer Henry a contract and as a free agent he agreed to a try-out with Södertälje SK of the Swedish HockeyAllsvenskan on September 12, 2012.[6] After 7 games with Södertälje into the 2012–13 season, Henry was unable to earn a contract with the club and returned to North America to sign with the ECHL's Stockton Thunder on November 3, 2012.[7]

After two games with the Thunder he was loaned to AHL affiliate, the Oklahoma City Barons, and registered 2 assists in 20 contests.[8] Upon his return to Stockton, Henry opted for a release from his contract for another venture to Europe in signing for the remainder of the season with Finnish club, HPK, of the SM-liiga on January 31, 2013.[9]

He signed with the Florida Everblades on Oct. 3, 2013.[10] Henry was named assistant captain of the team on a vote by the players.

Family[edit]

His younger brother, Darian (born August 5, 1994), is a defenceman who plays with the Regina Pats of the Western Hockey League.[11]
