The Edmonton Oilers' trade deadline acquisition Adam Henrique broke a crazy record yesterday in the first game of the series against the Los Angeles Kings.

Henrique, who got traded from the Anaheim Ducks to the Oilers in a three-team trade involving the Tampa Bay Lightning at the deadline, was playing his first playoff game since the Ducks were eliminated from the first round in 2018.

He broke a crazy record by scoring the following goal:




Indeed, Henrique scored his first playoff goal since 2012, a span of 4,333 days, the longest in NHL history:

"Adam Henrique scored his first playoff goal since Game 6 of the 2012 Stanley Cup Final – a span of 4,333 days, which is the longest between postseason goals by a player in NHL history."



Craig Ludwig previously had that record, with 4,079 days between playoff goals.

"Per @SNstats: the 4,333 days between Adam Henrique's last two playoff goals is an NHL record.

Previous: Craig Ludwig 4,079"



Interestingly, both goals were against the Kings.


Henrique is a very interesting addition to the Oilers, and he could play a key role in their quest for the Stanley Cup.

Do you think the Edmonton Oilers will sweep the Los Angeles Kings in the first round?
