Terry has played the majority of the season with the American Hockey League St. John’s IceCaps, where he leads the team in points playing on their top line, scoring 21 goals and adding 29 assists in 38 games. He is currently second in scoring in the entire AHL.
In 14 games with the Montreal Canadiens, Terry scored two goals and added two assists, primarily playing on the fourth line. He cleared waivers twice this season to play in the AHL, first at the start of the season, and then mid-way through the season when he passed the 10 NHL games threshold.
In 12 games in February Terry scored nine goals and added nine assists for 18 points with the IceCaps, which earned him AHL Player of the Month honours.
Terry is a 5th round draft pick by the Carolina Hurricanes in 2007, signing with the Montreal Canadiens during the off-season as an unrestricted free agent.
