Henrique's Time in Anaheim Has Been Divine

by Kyle Shohara @kyleshohara / AnaheimDucks.com

Adam Henrique has been a member of the Ducks for a little more than two months, but it feels like he's been here for years.

Bob Murray's late-November trade to acquire the 28-year-old center (along with Joseph Blandisi and a 2018 third-round draft pick) from the New Jersey Devils is turning out to be one of the best in-season trades in recent memory, at least in terms of immediate production. Henrique, who celebrated his 28th birthday with an overtime-winner in Buffalo last night, has been nothing short of phenomenal for the Ducks, providing the team not only with timely offense, but a solid two-way game as they continue to keep pace in the tightly contested Western Conference playoff race.

Getting to Know J.T. Brown

Claimed on waivers from the Tampa Bay Lightning on January 14, the 27-year-old forward discusses his fresh start in Anaheim and his love for gaming.

by Kyle Shohara @kyleshohara / AnaheimDucks.com

You were born in North Carolina, but spent most of your youth in Minnesota. Was hockey always your go-to sport?
I was born in High Point, North Carolina. My ID said Burnsville from when I went to juniors, but technically, I lived in - and grew up in - Apple Valley and went to Rosemount High School. I just lived in Burnsville for my senior year of high school. I played football and baseball, too, but hockey was my passion. When I went to high school, I ended up not playing football anymore. Just focused on hockey.

What was it like pursuing hockey when your dad [former NFL running back Ted Brown] played professionally in a different sport?
It was cool in a way. Let's say if I went into football, then I have my dad's footsteps. That's what I'd have to live up to, whereas with hockey I'm playing a completely different sport. Same with growing up. My dad, coming from North Carolina, didn't know the most about hockey, but he could teach me about the intangible things where it didn't matter whether you were playing baseball, basketball, football. It's about hard work and making sure you're ready to go. I think it was good for me that I wasn't playing the exact same sport, but still able to lean on him for the information you need.

Henrique Talks About his Adjustment to Being in Anaheim

It's been a month and a half since the likeable center was traded to the Ducks from New Jersey

by Adam Brady @AdamJBrady / AnaheimDucks.com

In the month and a half since you were traded to Anaheim, how has it been getting comfortable here?
It's been good. Just jumping into things and being with the guys on the road right away was helpful, when I look back on things. We're creatures of routine. We go through the same thing every day, and when we get away from that is when we start thinking about things. The easiest thing for us is just to go out and play hockey. I think also, the time on the road really helped with getting to know the guys and being around them - because that's all we have, really.
