Henrik Lundqvist Retires After 15 Years

Former New York Rangers Goaltender Henrik Lundqvist has announced his retirement, ending a legendary 15-year NHL career.

Lundqvist retires with a record of 459-310-96 in 887 career NHL games, with a save percentage of .918, a 2.43 goals-against average, and 64 shutouts. He is the Rangers’ franchise leader in all those categories.

Sadly, Henrik didn’t win a Stanley Cup with the Rangers. His best chance to win a Stanley Cup was from 2012-2015. Teams like the New Jersey Devils, Los Angeles Kings, and Tampa Bay Lightning got in the way of Henrik to have a ring. He was terrific for the Rangers. When many thought about who would replace Mike Richter, it was Henrik Lundqvist who took his place. Henrik will forever be a beloved Ranger because of his hard work and tenacity. The city of New York should feel a lot of gratitude that Henrik played for the blue, white, and red uniform. We will also never forget his incredible fashion style.

Lundqvist ranks sixth in NHL history in wins, seventh in saves (23,509), eighth in games played (887), ninth in starts (871), ninth in time on ice (51,816:51), and 17th in shutouts.

Thank you, Henrik Lundqvist!
