Henry Boucha

Henry Boucha is a retired Native American professional hockey player who played six seasons in the National Hockey League for the Detroit Red Wings, Minnesota North Stars, Kansas City Scouts and Colorado Rockies. Boucha led his Warroad to the 1969 state tournament before playing three seasons with the U.S. National Team, winning an Olympic silver medal in 1972. Boucha’s promising career was tragically cut short by an eye injury that forced him to hang up his skates at the age of 26. Inducted into the United States Hockey Hall of Fame in 1995, Boucha founded a program in 1995 to offer economically disadvantaged Ojibwe youth the opportunity to play ice hockey. Though mostly remembered for his on-ice abilities, Boucha’s greatest assists can be found off the ice.
