John Henderson


  • Inducted in 1998 (Whitby Dunlops 1958)
  • Team

John Henderson was perhaps the most important cog in the Dunlops surge to the Allan Cup and subsequently to the World Championship. A graduate of the Toronto Marlboro chain, he led a nomadic hockey life following a season with the NHL Boston Bruins in 1954-55. He also tended the nets for Pittsburgh, Springfield, Syracuse and Hershey in the American League. A slender individual with a fine sense of humor, Henderson was once considered the most agile goalie in professional hockey. In 44 games with Boston, he compiled a respectable 2.40 goals against average.
