Press release from the Predators is below:

“Nashville, Tenn. (July 1, 2012) – Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced today that the club has signed free agent forward Kevin Henderson to a one-year, two-way contract worth $550,000 at the NHL level and $50,000 at the AHL level.

Henderson, 25 (12/3/86), signed with the Predators’ ECHL affiliate, the Cincinnati Cyclones, on Feb. 1, 2012, but played just two games with the Cyclones before being loaned to Milwaukee (AHL) for the remainder of the 2011-12 season where he posted 11 points (4g-7a) in 30 regular-season games and dressed for all three of the Admirals 2012 Calder Cup Playoff contests. The 6-3, 210-pound left wing began his professional career – and played the 2009-10 and 2010-11 seasons – in the San Jose Sharks organization.

A native of Toronto, Henderson helped the University of New Brunswick win the 2009 CIS National Championship and received 2008-09 CIS All-Canadian Honorable Mention after tying for fifth in the nation in points (19g-31a-50pts) and goals, and ranked fourth in assists and plus/minus (+31). He was teammates with current Predators Nick Spaling (2005-07) and Matt Halischuk (2006-07) with the Kitchener Rangers, tying Halischuk for the Rangers goal lead in 2006-07 (33).”
