KALAMAZOO, MI— The Kalamazoo Wings and forward Scott Henegar have agreed to terms for the 2017-18 season, the team announced Tuesday.
Henegar, 27, skated in 71 games with the Wings last season and was a valuable contributor in various situations. The native of Trenton, Michigan, notched 14 goals to go along with nine assists for a 23-point total during his rookie campaign.
Henegar’s 71 games played last year tied for second most by any Kalamazoo skater during the 2016-17 season, and his 14 goals were good enough for second most among Wings’ rookies. He made the opening night roster and debuted in Norfolk on October 14, 2016, after earning a spot from a training camp tryout.
Though a second-year pro by ECHL standards, Henegar has been in the professional ranks since 2015-16 when he was a member of the Huntsville Havoc of the Southern Professional Hockey League. During that season with the Havoc, he was able to amass 24 goals and 11 assists in 56 games.
Before turning pro, the versatile forward appeared in 172 junior games with the Marquette Rangers and Michigan Warriors of the North American Hockey League and earned 116 points (42 goals, 74 assists) and 246 penalty minutes. Once his junior career concluded, he skated for four years with the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point, where he was a three-year assistant captain and scored 75 points on 37 goals and 38 assists.
