Flames acquire and sign Jordan Henry
CALGARY, AB – The Calgary Flames announced today the acquisition of defenseman Jordan Henry from the Florida Panthers in exchange for defenseman Keith Seabrook. The Flames also announced today that they have signed Henry.

Jordan Henry is a two-way defenseman who plays with an edge to his game,” said Flames General Manager Jay Feaster. “He is a responsible and smart defender, yet he is also adept at joining the rush and pinching down the wall to support the offense. He is still a solid prospect and we viewed this trade as an opportunity to give two young players a new start with different organizations. We look forward to seeing Jordan compete with our other recent depth acquisitions for a spot in our top seven in camp.”

“I’m very excited for the opportunity to join the Flames organization. And it’s especially nice since I’m from around the Calgary area. It’s a great change, a fresh start and it’s good to be back in North America.” said Henry.

Henry, a native of Milo, AB, played five seasons in the WHL with the Moose Jaw Warriors and the Red Deer Rebels. After completing his junior career, Henry signed as a free agent with the Florida Panthers and split his first professional year between the Florida Everblades (ECHL) and Rochester Americans (AHL). During his final campaign with Rochester (2009-10) he recorded 31 points and accumulated 104 penalty minutes in 76 games. Following three seasons in the AHL, Henry signed with Minsk Dynamo of the KHL for the 2010-11 season.

Contract Terms:  One year two way contact with an Average Annual Value of $600,000.
