Oil Barons Sign Defenseman Owen Hendrikson

The Fort McMurray Oil Barons are excited to announce the signing of Defenseman Owen Hendrikson (04).

Hendrikson, the left-shot defenseman is originally from Rosemount, Minnesota where he played for Rosemount High School (USHS-MN) producing 21 points (11 goals and 10 assists) in 27 games. Hendrikson also played 20 regular season games in the Upper Midwest HS Fall Elite League where he put up 9 assists.

“Owen is one of three players from the US we have signed for this season. When we watched him, we not only liked his size being over 6’0 but he is an exceptional puck moving defenseman with a strong offensive upside. His skating ability allows him to get back to pucks quickly to break pucks out and then activate into the rush on offense. We expect him to contribute offensively and defensively for us this season.” Said Assistant Coach Justin Rose.

The Oil Barons would like to welcome Owen and his family to the organization.
