Adam Henrique is having no trouble flourishing with the Anaheim Ducks.

The New Jersey Devils traded Henrique to the Ducks on Nov. 30 in a multi-player deal that included defenseman Sami Vatanen heading to the Metropolitan Division. Three games into his Ducks career, Henrique has totaled three points — an assist per game. Henrique finally showcased his goal scoring for those in attendance at the Honda Center on Wednesday night as the Ducks played the Ottawa Senators.

Henrique's first tally came at the 16:13 mark of the second period. He sent the shot past Senators goaltender Craig Anderson for his first goal as a member of the Ducks. Rickard Rakell and Corey Perry were credited with assists on the play that allowed Anaheim to take a 1-0 lead.

SN EXCLUSIVE: GM Ray Shero talks Devils' turnaround, Taylor Hall's evolutionIn the deal, the Devils parted only with center Adam Henrique, forward prospect Joseph Blandisi and a 2018 third-round pick, recouping a conditional third-rounder in either 2019 or 2020, depending on when and if Henrique re-signs with Anaheim.Henrique, still just 27, was a testament to the importance of drafting and developing.

The 27-year-old Henrique's second goal came at much more convenience. Anaheim held a 2-0 lead for the majority of the contest; so when Ottawa chose to empty its net in favor of the extra attacker, Henrique launched a shot from the blue line into the empty net. The goal increased Henrique's point total with Anaheim and also solidified the team's win over the Senators.

Henrique's transition to a new team and a new conference, after eight years with New Jersey, has shown to be quite convenient. Nearly 24 hours since his trade to Anaheim was official, Henrique was already playing for the Ducks. It's what helped Henrique adjust so well to playing with Anaheim.

"As far as systems I felt pretty good," Henrique said. "For me, I think the biggest thing was jumping in and playing right away, get my legs under me and obviously learning the system on the fly.
