Turning Point Sports Management client Adam Henry was diagnosed in late July with Myocarditis, a condition that involves the inflammation of the heart muscle. The condition has several causes, but most likely occurs as a result of common virus infections. Henry, 17, from Winnipeg, Manitoba was projected to be a top four defenseman for the Lethbridge Hurricanes this season. Henry will have to wait until January 2013 to begin intensive workouts to return to action as the primary course of treatment involves no heavy workouts or exercise for a period of six months. Henry has taken a very positive approach to this challenge, and will remain at home in Winnipeg to follow the regimen required by the physicians in order to resolve the health issue and get back into action with the Lethbridge Hurricanes early in the new year.
“While I am disappointed with this happening, I know that I will be able to return to play hockey in the WHL and I am treating this as I would any other significant injury which can happen to any of us who play this game even though it was not caused by playing hockey,” said Henry from his home in Winnipeg. Turning Point wishes Adam the best in his recovery, and knows that with his dedication, superb fitness and work ethic, that he will be back better than ever and ready to help Lethbridge in their goal of making post season play and continuing his promising career.
