Henrique scored a goal on two shots and added an assist in Friday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Wild. Henrique played his first game since April 24 after a stint in the NHL's COVID-19 protocol, and it went fairly well. The 31-year-old only saw 13:30 of ice time in a fourth-line role, but he was productive with it. It's been a tough year for Henrique on offense -- he has just 21 points in 45 games and will snap a run of seven straight 40-point campaigns.
Henrique (undisclosed) will suit up for Friday's tilt against Minnesota. Henrique has missed the Ducks' last six games while stashed away on the COVID-19 protocols list. The 31-year-old has 19 points while averaging 16:06 of ice time through 44 games. He'll enter a bottom-six role Friday.
Per the NHL's media site, Henrique was cleared from the COVID-19 protocol, but he won't play in Wednesday's game against the Blues. Henrique was able to accompany the team on their four-game road trip that started Monday, but he'll miss the first two legs of the trip. The good news for the 31-year-old is that he was cleared from virus protocols, so he'll be able to join the team for practice and begin to prepare for a return to the lineup. Isac Lundestrom will move up to center the second line, with Sam Steel centering the fourth line for Wednesday's game.
Henrique (COVID-19 protocols) is traveling with the Ducks on their road trip but won't play Monday in St. Louis, Elliott Teaford of The Orange County Register reports. Anaheim concludes its season with a four-game road trip through St. Louis and Minnesota, and Henrique evidently intends to rejoin the lineup at some point on the trip. That point won't come Monday, so the veteran center will set his sights on Wednesday's rematch with the Blues as his next opportunity to crack the lineup.
Henrique will remain in the NHL's COVID-19 protocols through the weekend, which means he won't be available against the Kings on Friday or Saturday, NHL.com reports. Henrique will set his sights on clearing the league's virus protocols in time for Monday's matchup with St. Louis. He's picked up 11 goals and 19 points through 44 contests this season.
