Henrik Lundqvist Hanging Up The Skates For Good

King Henrik Lundqvist is one of the New York Rangers all time greats and an NHL future hall of Fame candidate. His number, 30, will be retired this season since he has decided to hang up the skates! After Lundquvist was diagnosed with a heart issue last season and had open heart surgery, he and NHL fans knew he was fighting an uphill battle to continue his NHL career! After a long 15 years in the NHL, Henrik Lundqvist has decided to hang up the skates, retire, and move on to the next phase in his life!

Initial Thoughts

My first thought is sadness, but also how this is a bitter sweet moment as a Rangers fan! I really wish we were able to give him the Stanley Cup that he deserves! Lundqvist, it was an honor and a pleasure as a New York Rangers fan to watch you behind the pipes for fifteen years! Game in and game out Henrik Lundqvist gave this team a chance to win!

From 2012 to 2017 I enjoyed many New York Ranger playoff runs with number 30 standing on his head! Lundqvist led the rangers to 3 Eastern conference finals and one Stanley Cup final appearance! How many times did this guy play out of his ass or have a lock down game in a huge game seven for the Rangers! The king was remarkable and a joy to watch!


Lundqvist also succeeded on the national level playing for his home Country of Sweden. He actually won the Gold medal in the Olympics as well a Vezina Trophy. Lundqvist also received World Championship gold and was dominant for the Rangers being an NHL icon both on and off the ice, especially in fashion!
He finished his career with 459 NHL career wins, 6 on the NHL list for all time goalies! He had 64 regular season shutouts and is 10th in the top-10 all time for wins 459  sixth, total saves 23,509 seventh, save percentage 918 — 10th, games played for a goalie 887.

The king had a .922 post season save percentage in the playoffs and he was dominant in game 7 with a 6-2 recored. Lundqvist was dominate in any Elimination game for the Rangers! The bigger, the game the better he played and it has been a joy to watch him!

Final Thoughts 

I hope Lundqvist stays involved with the Rangers, whether that’s coaching or front office. He is to bright of a hockey mind and Rangers and the NHL needs him to stay involved! I will be attending the game where they retire number 30 into MSG rafters. Henrik Lundqvist was a fashion icon, all world goalie, and the definition of what it means to be a NY Ranger. I wish him nothing but the best in his future endeavors.

The chants will be unreal
Henrik Henrik Henrik

Long live the king!
