Adam Henrich (born January 19, 1984) is a Canadian former professional ice hockey player.

Henrich was drafted as the 60th overall selection in the 2002 NHL Entry Draft by the Tampa Bay Lightning. He was Tampa Bay's first selection of the draft. Henrich has also played for the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins, Springfield Falcons and Norfolk Admirals. Overall, he has played on 13 teams in 7 leagues in his hockey career.[1][2]

Playing career[edit]

Henrich played for Team Canada at the 1997 Maccabiah Games and the 2013 Maccabiah Games, where they won a gold medal.[3][4]

Henrich played minor hockey in Greater Toronto, where he was a member of the provincial champion peewee Toronto Marlies in 1998, on a team that included Rick Nash.[5]

Henrich was drafted in the first round, seventh overall by the Brampton Battalion in the 2000 OHL Priority Selection.[6] Henrich subsequently enjoyed a successful junior career playing four seasons for the Battalion. He tied four Battalion playoff records, including most games played (32) and most power-play goals (4) in a career. His 98 career Battalion goals rank fifth all time behind only Wojtek Wolski, Cody Hodgson, Raffi Torres and Luke Lynes.

Ahead of the 2002 NHL Entry Draft, Henrich was ranked 23rd by NHL Central Scouting.[5] As a result, he was among a group of top prospects invited to the NHL Draft Combine.[5] At the Draft on June 22, Henrich was selected in the second round, 60th overall by the Tampa Bay Lightning.[7]

Henrich had his strongest year for the Norfolk Admirals of the American Hockey League in the 2007–08 season.
