REPORT: JOKERIT @ HIFK U18, NOVEMBER 3, 2018
Henriksson had a key role in Jokerit’s 5-3 win over HIFK, scoring two goals and one assist. The winger showed good chemistry with Juuso Fagerström and Niko Kautiainen on the first line as the trio was able to create many offensive opportunities. Henriksson is very crafty with the puck, possesses fast hands and a wide range of offensive tools. He’s a skilled passer with good offensive vision and can also finish off his chances. His skating is pretty good, has quick feet and deceptive top-end speed, enabling to separate from opponents. I think his defensive game is still a work in progress, but he has the skill to strike quickly once he gets the puck.
REPORT: JOKERIT @ K-VANTAA U18, OCTOBER 8, 2017
Henriksson got on the scoresheet with one goal and one assist as Jokerit U18 edged Kiekko-Vantaa 6-3. He scored with a hard wrist shot in the first period, picking up the short side on the power play. He also had the secondary assist on 4-2 goal in the second period. Henriksson is a finesse forward with quick hands and puck protection skill. He made a few terrific moves with the puck, displaying superb stickhandling skills and the ability to make plays in traffic and tight spaces. He is a decently agile and quick skater with solid edge work; acceleration requires some improvement. His offensive abilities stood out more than his defensive game. Henriksson is someone to watch on the Jokerit U18 team over the course of the season.
