Ex-Maroon Braden Henderson Dealt To North Bay
Notably, Kent Bridge’s Grayson Ladd was traded to the Windsor Spitfires from Kitchener.
Another local connection however, saw Braden Henderson, who attended CKSS in Chatham, and played for the Chatham Maroons last season, dealt from the Sarnia Sting to the North Bay Battalion.
Henderson was the GOJHL Western Conference’s Most Outstanding Rookie Denfeseman last season, and was named to the All-Rookie Team while collecting 39 points in 39 games for Chatham.
“He’s a skilled defenceman who was a point-a-game player in junior B last year,” said Stan Butler, North Bay’s director of hockey operations and head coach in a team news release. “We hope, with the way the game is going with puck-moving defencemen, that he can fit into that role here.”
The defender had 5 assists in 19 games for a stacked Sarnia Sting team this season. Acquired alongside 7 draft picks, Henderson was traded primarily for NHL 3rd round pick Cam Dineen, an assistant captain in North Bay who was scoring at close to a point-per-game.
Originally a 6th round pick of the Sarnia Sting, Henderson hails from Baxter, Ontario.
