June 2022 – Henriksson, who was signed to his ELC in April of 2021, was on loan during the 2021-2022 season to the Swedish Hockey League’s Frolunda Indians in his native Sweden, where he posted only three goals and six assists for nine points in 40 games played, followed by three points in nine playoff games. Playing in his second full season with Frolunda, these numbers can be viewed as a bit disappointing, to be sure. It appears as though Henriksson may now be ticketed for the Hartford Wolf Pack, now that he is AHL-eligible. The playmaking center is signed through 2023-2024, giving the team and the player time to chart the best course for him moving forward. Assuming that he does head to Hartford for the 2022-2023 season, it will most certainly be an adjustment for Henriksson, but it is important for him to show improvements in his game, or he will risk falling down the Rangers’ depth charts further.

December 2020 – Henriksson was originally part of Sweden’s preliminary roster for the 2021 World Junior Championship to be held in Alberta and projected to slot in as the teams’ number-one center. Unfortunately, the 19-year-old has tested positive for COVID-19, with only weeks to go until the start of the tournament. As such, the team has been forced to drop him from the roster. This is a disappointing development as it would have been an excellent opportunity to evaluate the former second-round pick against the top caliber of his peers. Brayden Olafson
