Alex Henry (born October 18, 1979, in Elliot Lake, Ontario) is a Canadian professional ice hockey player. He is 6'5" tall, weighs 220 lbs, shoots left and plays defence for the Nashville Predators.

Looks like a tough guy for hamilton.

This is not his first time in Hamilton....he was here in the Edmonton days.....he will be a good veteran presence.

I believe he should. I believe we are soft and need to show a greater willingness to engage in battles. Henry, much like a Laroque or Stewart can bring this element to the team. Guys like Pacioretty should not have to fight. I am hoping that Henry gets a chance today. I watched him play and fight Neil in the preseason and saw that he was not outclassed in that tilt.

Just one game, but I was not impressed at all. Looks soooo slow out there. Not what we need. Yeah the fight was cool (I guess).

Our D is in bad shape and I don't think this guy can help any.

I don't think it's fair to criticize his game when he only got two shifts a period.

Does he make a huge difference in our line-up because of his skills as a D man - nope but the fact that they brought him in provides some validation for me as a fan fed up with our soft teams. having him take a spot on our 3rd defensive pairing is not going to hurt us too bad and the element of size and toughness he delivers is needed. we have such a soft team its embarrassing - I frankly would be fine with having Henry, Stewart and Laraque play every game - does anyone push Boston around - nope - Washington - nope - Calgary- nope - Habs - yes, all the time and our skilled players go into a shell when that happens.
