Henry Charles Boucha
- Born: June 1, 1951 in Warroad, Minnesota
- Hometown: Warroad, Minnesota
- Position: Centre
- Selected by Detroit Red Wings round 2 (#16) in 1971 NHL Amateur Draft
Drafted by the Detroit Red Wings 16th overall in the 1971 NHL Amateur Draft and first overall by the Minnesota Fighting Saints in the 1971 WHA Amateur Draft. Boucha choose the Wings over the Saints and made his NHL debuts in 1971-72. Boucha was a talented goal scorer and good penalty killer; he and his trademark headband were very popular among Detroit fans. He was dealt to the Minnesota North Stars for Danny Grant. Boucha enjoyed some deserved success in his home state when Dave Forbes of the Boston Bruins ended his season after swinging his stick at him, cracking the bone around his eye and blurring his vision. Boucha eventually sued Forbes for the damages he was inflicted in the incident, and settled for $1.5 millions from Forbes, the Bruins and the league.
