Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Gord Henry
Netminder Gord Henry played a few regular season and playoff games for the Boston Bruins in the 40s and 50s. He attained most of his pro success in the AHL and EHL.

Born in Owen Sound, Ontario, Henry rose up through the local minor hockey system and eventually signed with the Philadelphia Falcons of the Eastern League. He excelled in 28 games as a rookie in 1943-44 and earned a place on the league's second all-star team. By the late 40's Henry was the first string backstopper for the Hershey Bears. He led the team to the 1947 Calder Cup and topped all goalies with eight playoff wins.

In 1947-48 Henry led the AHL with 68 appearances and made 66 the following season. He also recorded a shutout in his first NHL game in 1948-49 for Boston and played for them in the 1952 and 1953 Stanley Cup playoffs. The talented netminder led the AHL in appearances three straight years beginning in 1950-51 and was named to the second all-star team in 1952. After spending a year with the senior Owen Sound Mercurys in 1955-56, Henry played one game for the EHL's Philadelphia Ramblers the next season before retiring.
