Henrik Rutsch

Connecticut Chiefs U7 Elite | #38

Henrik was born on March 31, 2011 and took the ice for the first time on March 29, 2013, just shy of his second birthday.
(Age 1 year, 11 months, and 29 days)

Denied the opportunity to take skating lessons because of his young age, Henrik jumped directly into organized hockey in October of 2014.

A regular at the XL Center in Hartford, Connecticut, Henrik's first brush with "hockey fame" was on his first birthday when he dropped his pacifier on the ice. Wade Redden promptly picked it up and popped it back in his mouth.

His favorite teams are the Hartford Wolf Pack and, though they met their demise 14 years prior to his birth, the Hartford Whalers.

Favorite players include Henrik Lundqvist, Henrik Zetterberg, Henrik Sedin, Henrik Tallinder, Henrik Samuelsson, Duncan Rutsch, and Dylan McIlrath.

He tries to style his game after...Michelangelo. Yes, the ninja turtle. And Micheal Haley?

Henrik shoots right, prefers Bauer skates, CCM sticks, and keeps his equipment in a Graf hockey bag. He also has a set of goaltender equipment.

Henrik scored his first goal (and added two more) on November 12, 2016 in a game against the South Windsor Knights.
