New Henrik Lundqvist Sports Illustrated Video Interview


Two Teens Score Fantasy Shopping Trip With Henrik Lundqvist


NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist is a tough guy on ice, but he turns into a real softie when it comes to kids.
As CBS 2’s Dave Carlin reported, Lundqvist gave two teens a surprise they will never forget, in the form of a fantasy shopping trip.
“It’s about making, just, a very special moment for them,” Lundqvist said.
Lundqvist was at the Barneys flagship store to see two teenagers, who had no idea the hockey superstar is on the other side of this door.
Tyler Mejorado, 13, of Fishkill was temporarily speechless when he came face-to-face with Lundqvist.
Mejorado is a liver transplant survivor and a big Rangers fan. And He never dreamed Lundqvist would be his own personal shopper for prom.
“I was star-struck, you know. That’s Henrik Lundqvist,” he said. “I was caught off-guard.”
Lundqvist personally tied Mejorado’s tie, and got the cuffs just right. Afterward, he was all ready for the big dance at Madison Square Garden next month sponsored by the charity Garden of Dreams.
Thomas Fontaino of Staten Island has cerebral palsy. He opted for a suit in basic black for the dance, and got quite the makeover with Lundqvist’s help.
“I’m all about my style,” said Fontaino, 16. “I’m always on point.”
As they looked with Lundqvist through jackets and pants, shirts, ties and shoes, there was very little mention of fashion and a lot of hockey talk.
“Talked about the season; the St. Louis trade,” Mejorado said. “It was really cool to get to talk hockey with him.”
It was fitting that the two would meet a man who fought his way to a top spot in pro hockey, because they are fighters too.
“Go for it – just do it,” Fontaino said.
“You’ve got to keep fighting,” added Mejorado

Henrik Extends Dominance Over Brodeur


By Larry Brooks

It wasn’t just another duel from approximately 190 feet apart between Henrik Lundqvist and Martin Brodeur. It was, in fact, certainly the last in this Battle of the Hudson between the masked men who are the faces of their respective franchises, because let’s face facts, if Brodeur plays next season, he won’t be with the Devils.
And it sure was a memorable one, with Brodeur throwing out a Last Hurrah that wasn’t quite good enough, not on this night, not against Lundqvist and the Rangers, not even in allowing only one goal.
Because The King did the Great Brodeur one better. He allowed none. And eight seconds after an empty-netter sealed it for the Blueshirts at 2-0, Lundqvist had set yet another franchise record with his 50th career shutout, surpassing Eddie Giacomin at the top of the leader board.
Oh, and this too: when it was over, when the Rangers stayed in the frantic hunt for a playoff spot by following Friday’s emotional night in Columbus with their second black-and-blue victory in 27 hours, Lundqvist’s head-to-head record against Brodeur was 26-10-5.
The Devils are all but done now, on the verge of their third playoff miss in the past four years, about to finish behind the Rangers for the fourth straight season, a dubious distinction that has no precedent in the Brodeur Era that commenced 20 years ago.
“It was an exhausting game but a fun game,” Lundqvist said, emotion and pride obvious in the post-game room. “It was intense.
“It was just fun to be out there battling. [Brodeur] made some great saves to keep them in it.”
Brodeur made 25 saves. But the one that got away decided it, and it came from a sharp angle from the left wing boards off the stick of Rick Nash at 10:33 of the second period when the goaltender was down on his knees after Chris Kreider had nicked him while flying over his pads driving to the net.
“I took a quick look and saw that he wasn’t back at his post yet, so I shot it,” said No. 61, who played with the same determination and effort as he had the previous night in Columbus.
“When we play against that goalie, we want to fire it from everywhere,” Nash said. “He made some unbelievable saves, but he didn’t get that one.”
He didn’t get that one and Lundqvist got every single one of the 21 shots he faced, notably including a semi-breakaway right pad save on Jaromir Jagr midway through the first period despite a breathtaking tuck back to the short side by No. 68, who was the Devils’ best player by leaps and bounds (again).
Then there were a couple of saves from Lundqvist while on his back as the Devils — Jagr and Travis Zajac — jammed and poked at a puck in the crease with 39 seconds to go.
In the land of the Devils, the King was making snow angels.
“I knew where the puck was, but they were hacking and whacking, so you never know,” Lundqvist said. “It was a relief when we got the puck out of the zone [after a faceoff that followed a video review].”
Lundqvist is at the top of his game. The struggles of November and December have receded into a distant memory.
What didn’t kill him made him stronger, oh yes, it did.
Once upon a time, Brodeur tormented the Rangers, once stringing together a 23-game unbeaten streak (15-0-8) against the team he loved to hate.
But that was then, when the Devils ruled the Hudson.
The victory was the 303rd of Lundqvist’s career. That brings him within 353 wins of Brodeur’s all-time record. Earlier this week, Brodeur — who has rarely missed a chance to deliver a verbal jab to the King — was quoted as saying he hopes Lundqvist can get to at least 500 victories.
Asked if he thought Brodeur meant it, Lundqvist smiled.
“I think so,” he said. “I hope so.”

Henrik Lundqvist Post-Game Video Interview (Surpasses Eddie Giacomin on NYR All-Time Shutout List)


Henrik Lundqvist posted his fifth shutout of the season with a 21-save effort and added a power play assist, improving to 28-22-4 overall with a 16-9-0 mark on the road this season.

A Tip of the Goalie Mask to Rangers Greats



After Henrik Lundqvist secured a 3-0 victory over the Detroit Red Wings on Sunday, he paid tribute to two great Rangers goalies who came before him: Eddie Giacomin, whose Rangers shutout record he tied, and Mike Richter, whose team victory record is only one win away.

“I do think about them, probably because the Rangers are so good at paying tribute to the old guys and the legends they’ve had here,” Lundqvist said. “They come in once in a while. You constantly get reminded what they did for this organization, which I think is great. It’s very special when you’re up there with them.”

Richter and Giacomin say the feeling is mutual.

“Hank is gifted,” Richter said as Lundqvist closed in on his club record of 301 career victories. “His intensity, his desire to win, his real desire to improve — these are the things I’ve seen and admired in him from when he first joined the Rangers. I’m very happy for him.”

Giacomin said: “I’m a Canadian, Mike Richter’s American and Hank’s a European, a Swede. It’s amazing that it happens in New York that way.”

300 and Counting
On Sunday, Henrik Lundqvist recorded his 300th N.H.L. victory and 49th career shutout. Where his regular-season numbers rank.

Mike Richter, 1989-2003
Henrik Lundqvist, 2005-14
Eddie Giacomin, 1965-76
Gump Worsley, 1952-63
John Vanbiesbrouck, 1981-1993
Dave Kerr, 1934-41
Chuck Rayner, 1945-53

Eddie Giacomin, 1965-76
Henrik Lundqvist, 2005-14
Dave Kerr, 1934-41
John Ross Roach, 1928-32
Chuck Rayner, 1945-53
Gump Worsley, 1952-63
Mike Richter, 1989-2003

Giacomin, Richter and Lundqvist are three strands in an extended golden braid of Rangers goaltenders going back to the club’s founding in the 1920s. Richter and Giacomin have been where Lundqvist is today. Richter, who played for the Rangers from 1989 to 2003, surpassed Giacomin in 2001 for the team lead in victories. Giacomin had supplanted Gump Worsley (1952-63) in team wins and Dave Kerr (1934-41) in shutouts.

When they set those records, they were aware of their place in the continuum.

“There’s a series of goalies that you eclipse as you go along, guys that came before you,” Richter said. “Eddie is the iconic Rangers goaltender. I had him as my goalie coach when I first came in. I watched him when I was a young guy growing up in Philadelphia. I loved his mask, read his life story, and there I was, in the same uniform as him. Later on, just have him as a friend, the feeling is humbling.”

Giacomin looked up to Chuck Rayner, who played for the Rangers from 1945 to 1953.

“He used to come to whatever functions we had,” Giacomin said. “I can remember saying, ‘Boy, that’s really something to be on the ice with Chuck Rayner.’ ”

Richter, 47, knows as well as anyone what it takes to be a winning goalie in New York. He played 666 regular-season games for the Rangers, the most of any goalie, and in 1994, he helped the team win its only Stanley Cup since 1940, when Kerr was in the net.

Richter’s goaltending was also central to the United States’ victory at the 1996 World Cup of Hockey and its silver medal at the 2002 Olympics. But a fractured skull and two concussions in rapid succession forced him to retire before the 2003-4 season.

After his retirement, he went to Yale to finish his bachelor’s degree and was an assistant for the men’s hockey team. In the late 2000s, he twice contemplated running for the United States House of Representatives as a Democrat, once in Connecticut and once in New York, but decided against it.

Today, Richter is a founding partner at Healthy Planet Partners, a company that retrofits buildings with renewable energy technology. He is also on the boards for Riverkeeper, the Adirondack Nature Conservancy, the Sierra Club and other environmental groups.

Richter has three sons, two of whom, age 13 and 9, play hockey, but he no longer coaches their travel teams and works only occasional clinics. And he no longer plays goalie; he is a forward in a recreational league. Even his sons are not goalies.

“My wife was especially happy about that,” he said, laughing.

Giacomin’s most famous moment came two days after he was waived by the Rangers in October 1975. He returned to Madison Square Garden as the goalie for Detroit and was given a thunderous, extended ovation by Rangers fans as he stood weeping on the blue line. He won the game for the Red Wings.

“I always say one of the reasons I’m in the Hall of Fame is because of that night,” Giacomin said. “How many times does a player get an ovation like that, where they cheer for the opposing team the whole night?”

Soon after he retired, Giacomin was the Rangers’ goaltending coach for a few seasons, mentoring Richter, John Vanbiesbrouck, Bob Froese and other goalies of the 1980s. Now 74 and retired, he lives near Detroit and has three grandchildren who play hockey, though none are goalies.

“Oh, no, they’re all smarter than me; they want the joy of scoring,” Giacomin said.

He added that he would always be a Ranger and that his heart was in New York.

“When the Rangers lose, a little bit of me dies with them because that’s how I feel,” he said. “New York fans have been so supportive of me. and of Mike Richter and now of Lundqvist.”

Giacomin also watches Lundqvist with admiration.

“You’re not going to get many cheap goals on him — he’s a gamer,” he said. “He battles all the time, everything, whether it’s a practice or it’s a game. And he likes to play all the games — the more he plays, the better he gets. Look at the schedule, the Olympics. My God, he was sensational, and it’s continuing on.”

Lundqvist, 32, has Olympic gold and silver medals on his résumé but not a Stanley Cup. Still, he said he was appreciating the grand sweep of history more and more.

“I do a lot more now than when I was younger,” Lundqvist said. “You still want to push yourself, but at the same time, you want to enjoy the ride. So I think back on where I came from and how it all happened.”

And the other great Rangers goalies he stands alongside.

“I’m proud just thinking about it,” he said.

Lundqvist Seems Destined To One Day Win Stanley Cup With Rangers


By Sean Hartnett

Every time Henrik Lundqvist pulls on his mask, he’s carrying the hopes and dreams of Rangers’ fans on his back.
Lundqvist put pen to paper on a seven-year, $59.5 million extension in December because this is the only team and only city he’s ever wanted to represent.
This city has given Lundqvist an outpouring of adoration and the charming Swede is desperate to repay New Yorkers and the Rangers’ organization for their unwavering support.
“I really want to win the Cup here in New York. It’s my biggest goal and my biggest dream,” Lundqvist said in December. “Secondly, I want to be a Ranger for life. To picture myself anywhere else was just wrong and was never an option. I know there was some speculation over the summer, but from the heart — it was never an option to leave this club.”
New York and Lundqvist — together, forever. That kind of loyalty is heartening considering former captain Ryan Callahan recently opted to give the Blueshirts no choice but to deal him away on trade deadline day.
Callahan could have joined Lundqvist and stalwart defenseman Dan Girardi by amicably agreeing to a long-term extension. Instead, his path has taken a sudden turn into the unknown. Currently a member of the Tampa Bay Lightning, Callahan will likely test the free agent waters where some desperate, mediocre team may offer him a seven-year contract above $6.5 million per year with the full no-trade he desires. That’s a lot of financial security. However, it is unlikely to include the security of competitiveness that was once available to Callahan in New York.
Lundqvist and Girardi hitched their wagons to a Rangers franchise that is on the upswing thanks to the fresh, uptempo philosophies of head coach Alain Vigneault and one-sided heists completed in recent years by general manager Glen Sather.
That being said, the Rangers’ ultimate success will be tied to Lundqvist’s pads, blocker, trapper and stick. Together, Lundqvist has been able to transform his equipment into a symphony of acrobatic, agile and jaw-dropping saves all to the delight of the Garden faithful.
One of these years, Lundqvist is going to rise to a Dominik Hasek-level of playoff dominance. It won’t be long before he drinks from that magnificent silver chalice. Given the core in place supporting and protecting “The King,” Lundqvist’s date with Lord Stanley has been accelerated.


The 31-year-old awe-inspiring netminder enjoyed a milestone day in front of his adoring fans on Sunday, as he reached the 300-win plateau with a 3-0 victory over the Detroit Red Wings.
“I started thinking about it after two periods,” Lundqvist said. “Why not go for a doughnut in this game and reach 300 wins? It was a good challenge for me.”
Teammate Brad Richards recognizes the incredible stability and consistency that Lundqvist brings to the Rangers’ organization.
“It’s great for him,” Richards said. “He’s been the face of the franchise and will continue to be that, and that’s why. He’s only been in the league eight or nine years and it seems like it’s 30 or 40 wins each year. That’s stability for the organization and a great accomplishment for him.”
Lundqvist understands what he’s playing for when he pulls on the Rangers’ historic Original Six sweater. He’s seen the legends pass through the hallowed halls of MSG.
“The Rangers are so good about paying tribute to the old guys and the legends they’ve had here,” Lundqvist said. “They come in once in a while, you get to see them and you’re constantly getting reminded of what they did for this organization, which I think is great.”
On Sunday, Lundqvist tied Ed Giacomin for the franchise lead in career regular season shutouts with 49. He is now only a single victory away from equaling Mike Richter’s franchise record for regular season wins.
“It’s a great feeling to be up there with those guys,” Lundqvist said. “This organization has been around for so long so to be up there with them, it’s very special and I am proud just thinking about it. I have been lucky. I have been able to be here for almost nine years and play with great defensemen in front of me and teammates and good structure of the years to help me reach that.”
Lately, Lundqvist has been especially stingy between the pipes, holding opponents to two goals or less in 12 of his last 17 games.
Should Lundqvist continue that rate into June, perhaps he will finally deliver that long-awaited Stanley Cup parade sequel through the streets of Manhattan, 20 years after Richter etched his name into history.

Martin Brodeur Hopes Henrik Lundqvist Reaches 500 Wins


Brodeur’s 2-1 victory over the Flyers Tuesday night was the 686th of his career and it brought to mind the milestone Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist reached on Sunday when he posted his 300th career win.

Is it possible for Lundqvist to even approach Brodeur’s NHL wins record if he plays another decade?

“I’ve never really looked at his stats. You never know,” Brodeur told The Star-Ledger. “They’ve (the Rangers) got to be a successful team and parity is a lot greater than it used to be. It’s going to be tough.”

Lundqvist was 32 years, seven days old when he won his 300th.

Brodeur reached the same age on May 13, 2004, a month after the Devils had been eliminated from the playoffs. He had 403 career victories at that point.

Of course, as Bob Waterman of the Elias Sports Bureau points out, that isn’t a “like-to-like” comparison since 48 of Lundqvist's 300 wins came in shootouts. None of Brodeur's wins through 2003-04 did, since the shootout wasn't introduced until 2005-06, which happened to be Lundqvist's first NHL season.

A more valid head-to-head comparison would be Brodeur's first 403 wins to Lundqvist's 252 non-shootout wins.

It is impossible to know how many victories Brodeur might have had at age 32 years, seven days had there been shootouts. He had 105 ties through 2003-04, so by winning 52 of those he’d have had 455 wins at Lundqvist’s age.

Before he retires, Brodeur could play another season and make a run at 700 career wins. If Lundqvist plays another 10 seasons (this is his 9th), what figure might he reach?

“He may be able to get close to the records of Patrick (Roy) and those guys. There aren’t many guys that have (those stats),” Brodeur suggested.

Roy is second all-time with 551 wins and Ed Belfour third at 484.

Are 500 wins within reach for Lundqvist?

“It depends on how long he plays,” Brodeur said. “I hope so for him. It would mean he’s going to have a helluva career.”

New Henrik Lundqvist Men's Fitness Training Interview


New York Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist won a silver medal in the Sochi Olympics representing his native Sweden, and now he's looking for a late-season push to make the NHL playoffs. Men’s Fitness caught up with Lundqvist at the annual New York Rangers Casino Night fund-raiser, which raised nearly $300,000 for the Garden of Dreams Foundation, a charity that helps families and children facing obstacles including homelessness, extreme poverty, and illness. Check out how “The King” trains year-round to improve performance on the ice.

Men’s Fitness: What were some lessons you learned from the Olympics?
Henrik Lundqvist: Enjoy the moment. You don’t get that many opportunities to represent your country in the Olympics. This is my third one and I felt very lucky. It was so exciting to be there. We do play under a lot of pressure but I think it is important to try and enjoy the moment. Because it was a nine-hour difference, it was important to get sleep early on to get into the proper time rhythm. The transition for me was pretty good. I felt like I got into the rhythm fast, which helped me perform on the ice.

What are a goalie’s main strengths on the ice?
We are all built differently. Some guys are more powerful. Some guys are very tall. I’m not very tall so I rely on quickness. I look at myself physically, I’m not superstrong or superfast but on the ice it so much about technique. You have to put in a lot of hours on the ice to work on technique, repeat things, memorize them in your brain so that in the game it just happens without thinking.

What is your training routine like throughout the year?
Since we play every second day, a lot of times it is more about recovery than actually training hard. In the summer, we work out a lot harder in the gym, go running and biking, and I like to play a lot of tennis. Tennis is really good for my game. Tennis is good for me because you get the quickness and movement from side to side and is similar to how I move on the ice. That is really something I picked up within the last four to five years.

Run me through a typical training day during the season.
During the season, we will do squats and core strengthening in the gym. You get to the rink, stretch for 10-15 minutes, go on the ice 20 minutes before practice starts and do goalie drills, practice for an hour then stay on the ice for about 10-15 minutes to do extra shooting. After practice, if you feel like you have the energy and you're not playing the next day you might do squats, jumps, situps, pushups, and other exercises in the gym.

What is one piece of training advice you would give any aspiring hockey player?
If it’s on the ice, I think it's about quality, not quantity. Being out there for a long time doesn’t help you if you don’t have quality. I’d rather go short and go really hard then go two hours and not be focused. Quality when you practice is really important.

What are your goals for the rest of the season?
We have about 20 games left and the goal is to make it into the playoffs and go for a good run. We want to win. That’s our ultimate goal this year. It's going to be a great challenge for us but I think it's a realistic goal.

New Henrik Lundqvist Advil Commercial


Here are some interesting facts regarding Henrik's marketability and popularity from Sports Business Daily:

Lundqvist ranks third among NHL players in awareness among consumers tested for The Davie-Brown Index of celebrities. About 18 percent of U.S. consumers are aware of him, putting him on a par with sports personalities like Chicago Cubs general manager Theo Epstein and Syracuse University basketball coach Jim Boeheim. The Washington Capitals’ Alex Ovechkin (25 percent awareness) and the Pittsburgh Penguins’ Sidney Crosby (22 percent) are the top-ranked NHL players. Lundqvist’s Davie-Brown score for “appeal” is on par with San Francisco 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh and NASCAR driver Danica Patrick, while his “endorsement” score is in the same neighborhood as the Dallas Mavericks’ Dirk Nowitzki and NBA hall of famer and broadcaster Charles Barkley.

Advil signed a North American deal as the NHL’s official pain reliever last year, gaining with it a presence on league-controlled broadcast and digital assets, as well as on NBC and NBC Sports Network NHL telecasts.

IMG handles marketing for Lundqvist, who has done an ESPN “SportsCenter” ad and also has deals with Fathead, Bauer and Procter & Gamble in Sweden.
