Adam Henrique Shifts His Attention Away From Hockey Week Before Trade Deadline

Published March 1, 2024 at 6:58 PM

The Anaheim Ducks will very likely be sellers at the trade deadline this year. One player that could be on the move is Adam Henrique, but he has a lot more than hockey on his mind recently.

Henrique Welcomes Second Baby Girl

The 34-year-old became a father all over again this week as he welcomed his second baby girl to the world on Monday. While hockey is a huge part of his life, many things take precedence over the sport, including news like this.

That being said, there is a common trope in professional sports that players perform better after major life moments like this. Henrique seems to have gotten that message as his latest performance was one of the best of the season.

Henrique Increases Trade Value With Three-Point Night

The Ducks veteran helped his team secure a 6-3 victory over the San Jose Sharks in a big way last night. He scored a big goal late in the second period to give the team a two-goal lead going into the third.

He also recorded two helpers in the contest, giving him three points in his first game back since welcoming his latest child to the world. Fans are excited at the idea of him increasing his trade value so close to the deadline.

The 34-year-old has 17 goals and 41 points on the season in 58 games for the 30th place Ducks. He has been a consistent bright spot for the team this season, although he will likely be traded in the coming days. Be sure to stay tuned to see where the new father ends up.
