Hensick agrees to terms with Avalanche

Michigan senior forward T.J. Hensick agreed to a three-year entry-level contract with the Colorado Avalanche yesterday.

Hensick was a third-round draft pick (88th overall) of the Avalanche in the 2005 NHL Entry Draft.

Hensick recently completed an outstanding four-year career with the Wolverines, during which he amassed 222 points on 75 goals and 147 assists. The 222 points rank eighth all-time at U-M and the 147 assists place him fourth all-time. As a sophomore (2004-05) and senior (2006-07), Hensick was both a Hobey Baker Memorial award finalist and an American Hockey Coaches Association West All-America first team selection. He earned All-Central Collegiate Hockey Association first team honors three times (2003-04, 2004-05, 2006-07) and earned second team recognition once (2005-06).

During his senior season, Hensick led the nation in points (69) as well as assists (46). He set personal bests for points (69), assists (46), plus/minus (+24), game-winning goals (3), shorthanded goals (2) and multi-point games (22), while tying career highs in goals (23) and power-play markers (6). Hensick is the first Wolverine to post 40 points in all four seasons played since Brendan Morrison (1994-98).

Hensick helped the Wolverines win a pair of CCHA regular season titles (2004, 2005) as well as a CCHA Tournament championship (2005). U-M advanced to the NCAA Tournament in each of his four campaigns.
