Alex Henry was born October 18, 1979 in Elliot Lake, Ontario. The third round, 67th overall selection of the Edmonton Oilers in the 1998 NHL Entry Draft, Henry is a graduate of the OHL's London Knights.
A stay-at-home defenseman in his three years with London, Henry joined the AHL's Hamilton Bulldogs in the fall of 1999 and went on to play parts of three seasons in the Oilers organization, getting his first taste of the NHL in 2002-03. After beginning the season with the Oilers, Henry was put on waivers after only three games with the club and was subsequently claimed by the Washington Capitals. Upon his arrival with the Caps, the hulking defenseman spent most of his time with the NHL club while seeing limited action with the team's AHL affiliate in Portland.
After only one season in Washington, Henry was dealt to the Minnesota Wild and played in a career high 72 games with the team. Henry would return the following season and compete in 63 games with the Wild while posting a career-high in assists and representing the club as captain in the month of October.
In the summer of 2006, Henry was signed as an unrestricted free agent by the Nashville Predators.
Claimed on waivers by Washington from Edmonton, October 24, 2002. Claimed by Minnesota off waivers from Washington, October 9, 2003.
