Adam Henry to Miss Four Months With Heart Condition

The Lethbridge Hurricanes were dealt a blow Wednesday when the team announced they would be without Defenceman Adam Henry until January.

The 17 year old native of Winnipeg, Manitoba was diagnosed with Myocarditis, a condition that’s an inflammation of the heart muscle and while there are various causes, it’s most often due to common virus infections.

The Lethbridge Hurricanes focus is the health of Henry, and we wish him all the best in his recovery. We look forward to his return to the lineup in the second half of the season.

In his first full season with the Canes last year, Henry registered 21 points (4G, 17A) and added 47 PIM’s in 60 games.

  1. That's a strange one.
    Hope the young guy gets the proper treatment and we see him return on schedule.
    Good luck

  2. That is tough luck for Adam...we wish him well and he will be missed...the team will be missing a top 4 defenceman and that hurts. TD

  3. Hey, best of luck Adam. Good news is the docs probably (hopefully) recognized it early and can monitor his situation. Stay positive!
