September 2020 – Henriksson has begun his D+2 campaign on the opening night roster for the Frolunda Indians SHL squad. After splitting last year between the SuperElit, Allsvenskan and SHL, it may take some time for him to fully adjust to the SHL speed, but he will have an opportunity to work himself into a prominent role by the end of the year. If his first game is any indication, Henriksson will be cast in a two-way role where he can refine his good habits in the defensive zone, while using his footwork and skill to exploit defenses on lineup mismatches – much the type of role the Rangers hope he will develop into for them in the future. Brayden Olafson

 

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
