The goal snapped a five-game point drought and improved Henrique to 20 tallies and 39 points through 77 games for the campaign. He also sports a minus-20 rating and is a low-volume shooter (171 shots per game). There aren't many fantasy settings where you can rely on his mediocre offensive production and lack of peripheral coverage from the center position.
Henrique potted a pair of goals on four shots in Thursday's 6-2 win over the Flyers.
That's one more goal than Henrique managed in the prior 14 games put together; he notched only two assists in that span, too. Henrique's production is down from last year's fluky 30-goal campaign, but he continues to see heavy minutes for a bad Devils team, so he at least has some deep-league value.
Henrique tallied his 16th goal of the season in Saturday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Rangers.
Henrique is way off his 30-goal pace of 2015-16, but he does have seven points, including three snipes, in his last 10 games. Sadly, he was picked apart in the face-off circle (3-for-14). Henrique is solid, but unspectacular depth fantasy play, as long as your league uses him as a forward and not as a center.
Henrique has been held to one goal with no assists in his past nine games.
Henrique continues to be given every opportunity to produce while centering both the second line and the second power-play unit, but simply isn't clicking. He has skated under 19 minutes only three times in this poor stretch, and will continue to play a prominent role given the lack of skilled personnel to take his place. While the 26-year-old center's career-low 12.1 percent conversion rate on shots will likely bounce back closer to his career average of 15.2 percent, a lack of assists will continue to put a damper on his value.
Henrique picked up a goal, an assist and a plus-3 rating in Tuesday's 3-1 win over Carolina.
This was a nice bounce-back effort for Henrique, who had only one point over the last five games and just one shot on goal in three consecutive contests coming in. He's had some hot runs, but on the balance of it, Henrique isn't going to give you much more than he did last year (50 points), and he'll probably give you less, particularly in the goals category. There's not a great likelihood that he even approaches 30 this year.
