Observations

January 2020 – The 18-year-old Rangers prospect assisted the Swedes in taking home a bronze medal over the holidays at the 2020 WJC in the Czech Republic. His relationship with 2020 Entry Draft eligible prospects, Alexander Holtz and Lucas Raymond continues to be an apparent factor in his chemistry with the two during international competition. Despite his modest production at the tournament, Henriksson stood out as an individual in several instances. He’ll be eligible to return for another opportunity at the tournament next year where he should be expected to play a prominent role for the Swedes. Brayden Olafson 

 

June 2019 – An elusive centerman who plays a team-first type of game, Henriksson had success in his draft year playing with Froulunda of the SuperElit leauge, and with the Swedish National team at the U18 tournament. Henriksson played well with fellow Frolunda forward, Lucas Raymond, who is a top prospect eligible for the NHL draft in 2020. Moving into a higher league such as the SHL will be an important step in the young center’s development, but one that could expose his high-risk, high-reward focus. Brayden Olafson
