Henderson joins fourth team in a deal with the Tigers and ICE

20-year-old WHL Defenseman Jordan Henderson has got to be tired of packing his luggage, as he is now joining his 4th WHL team. Henderson has already had stints in Spokane, Saskatoon, and Medicine Hat.

In Henderson the ICE receive a player who was drafted 72nd overall by the Spokane Chiefs back in 2012. He joined the team for his 17-year-old season and had one goal and four assists in his 54 games. During the 2015-16 season Henderson played 43 games. In those games he added four assists.

In November of 2016 the Chiefs traded the defenseman to the Saskatoon Blades. Henderson would last just 20 games with the team before he was moved to the Medicine Hat Tigers who were dealing with some injuries on their back end. The high powered offense of the Tigers lead to Henderson posting five goals and 14 assists over 26 games.

The Kootenay ICE sent a conditional sixth round draft pick to the Tigers in this exchange, the details of the conditions are not known at this time.

The ICE now have five players in the overage category, goaltender Mario Petit, forward Colton Kroeker and defensemen Troy Murray, Kurtis Rutledge and Jordan Henderson
