Hendricks scored his first goal of the season to trigger Nashville's three-goal first period. But on the opening shift of the second period, Hendricks took a hard hit from Phoenix defenseman Derek Morris. He skated off and did not return. Phoenix won the game 5-4 in a shootout.
It was definitely emotional. I really appreciated the fans. It was a cool feeling and it felt special and the ovation there at the start and then you kind of feel funny out there standing by yourself. Thinking back, I was saying just a bit ago, you think back just trying to make the NHL and then you kind of reflect on all the years being able to play for a great organization here in Calgary and all the fun I've had so far in my career. I feel very fortunate and blessed.
