Right-winger Archie Henderson played parts of three seasons in the NHL during the early 80s. The 6'6", 220 pounder was a grinder and punishing hitter who could take on the toughest foes on the opposition and pitch in with the occasional goal.
Born in Calgary, Alberta, Henderson was selected 156th overall by the Washington Capitals in 1977 after four solid years with the WHL's Lethbridge Broncos and Victoria Cougars. He spent most of his first four pro seasons in the minors but did make it into seven games with the Caps in 1980-81.
In July, 1981 he was signed as a free agent by the Minnesota North Stars to add depth to their CHL farm club. He spent a year with the Stars' organization before coming to terms with the Hartford Whalers. Henderson played 15 games with Hartford in 1982-83 then returned to the minors for the remainder of his career. One of the toughest minor leaguers of his time, he topped 200 minutes in penalties seven times before retiring in 1988.
