JT Henke Named League Rookie of the Month

PRINCETON, N.J. – Utah Grizzlies’ forward J.T. Henke is the Howies Hockey Tape ECHL Rookie of the Month for December.

Henke scored 10 goals and added two assists for 12 points in nine games during the month.

The 24-year-old scored at least one goal in six of his nine games in December, and had four consecutive two-goal games from Dec. 15-29. He ended the month on a six-game point streak, totaling 11 points (9g-2a) over that stretch.

A native of Trenton, Michigan, Henke made his pro debut with the Greenville Swamp Rabbits last season and he has recorded 20 points (14g-6a) in 28 career ECHL games with Utah and Greenville.

Prior to turning pro, Henke tallied 79 points (29g-50a) in 72 games at Lake Superior State University after posting eight points (1g-7a) in 21 games during his freshman season at the University of Maine.

In recognition of his accomplishment, Howies Hockey Tape will present J.T. Henke with a Howies Prize Pack during an on-ice ceremony at an upcoming Grizzlies’ home game.

Tickets are available now at Utahgrizzlies.com. The Grizzlies are home this Friday and Saturday against the Wichita Thunder.
