Henrik Lundqvist is "Not gonna apologize" for Flipping his Net, Needed a Stoppage in Play

ShareThis


When Henrik Lundqvist took an incidental hit from teammate Ryan McDonagh in Pittsburgh on Thursday, he was not ready to continue playing. He expected a whistle but didn't get one from the referee, and so rather than put himself in harm's way, he did the only thing that he could think of to stop play: Throw the net off its moorings.

Lundqvist, who suffered neck spasms from the hit but is feeling better and anticipates returning to game action this weekend, said Monday the referee asked him if he was OK and that he perhaps waited too long to say he wasn't. The goaltender then tried to get the official's attention, but play had gone to the other end of the ice. His stick was in the corner but he didn't retrieve it because he didn't feel well enough to continue.

"When I realized the puck is in our end, I was not really ready to play. That was the truth," Lundqvist said. "I don't know how I came up with the conclusion to move the net, but that's what came up in my head, and I'm not gonna apologize for it because I was just not in a position where I could play the game. I needed a break."

The Rangers netminder was called for a delay-of-game penalty at 6:17 of the second, and after getting a few moments to shake off the hit, he played the rest of the second period. It wasn't until the second intermission when his adrenaline wore off that he felt he needed to come out of the game, which he did.

Lundqvist said he heard of Penguins goalie Marc Andre-Fleury's "baby stuff" comment regarding Lundqvist's actions but didn't offer a retort.

"All I can say is I was not in position where I could play the game," said Lundqvist, who was upset he received a penalty after being left in a precarious situation. "I needed a whistle. If the ref's not gonna give me one I'm gonna deal with it my way. Could I have done it differently? Absolutely. But at the same time it was a really tough hit where I was not really thinking straight, I think. But I got the whistle."

Lundqvist was tested for a concussion, and passed, but his state of mind was at the very least colored by his rage from not getting a stoppage, as well as then getting called for a delay-of-game penalty for tossing his net off its moorings.
“I was not upset when I moved the net. I was upset afterwards because I got a penalty, because I was put in that position,” Lundqvist said. “But I was definitely not upset by the hit or anything. It happens. It was my own guy. So people were talking about I must have been really upset or frustrated, but no, I just needed a break, that’s it.”

Henrik Lundqvist is Hockey's Fashion Leader

ShareThis

The New York Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist, 34, joined the team for the 2005-6 season at age 23. Back then, the native of Are, Sweden, was teased for his skinny jeans, skinny ties and European flair. He stuck with his look and is now known as perhaps the most stylish guy in the National Hockey League.

1 Jacket I’ve been wearing this navy blue wool coat with a fur collar from Ferragamo. I got it from the Ferragamo store in New York City almost a year ago. I like the way it fits, which is slim, and it’s a little fun with the collar. You can also take off the collar, and then you get a different look. It works well with jeans and also with suits.

2 Suit We have to wear suits when we travel and go to games, so four to five days a week, you’re in a suit. I remember my first couple of years in the league, there were a lot of comments about how I dressed, because I guess it was more European. I was wearing skinny ties — this was 11 years ago — and they were not used to that. But then two years later, skinny ties started to pick up in the U.S., especially in New York. But I’ve found it doesn’t really matter what people say. If you feel comfortable, stick with it. The last couple of years, I’ve been starting to wear more and more double-breasted styles. It’s kind of a little bit more old-school. I like one by this Swedish brand Stephen F.

3 Shoes Ferragamo makes the best shoes. My favorite is probably a pair of black velvet ones, although I don’t wear them all the time.

4 Watch I picked up a new TAG Heuer watch a few months ago. It’s in rose gold, and I’ve been wearing that the most lately. When it comes to clothes, I wear a lot of blue, black and gray, and also, of course, white shirts. The watch has a gray face and gray band, but then it looks really good with the rose gold. The contrast is what made it stand out. But it’s still a very clean look, which is what I like.

5 Jeans If I’m not in suits, I’ll wear jeans, boots and a leather jacket. I love music and I like a little bit of that rock ’n’ roll look. I wear a lot of black jeans. My favorites are by Tiger of Sweden. They’re skinny but not too tight. Again, that was something I got a lot of comments on in the early days, but it’s pretty common here now. And now the younger guys in the league dress better and care more about clothes. But even if someone teases you, just laugh it off. Have fun with it.

Henrik Lundqvist, the Rangers star goalie and spokesman for the Garden of Dreams, welcomed the well-heeled attendees who paid up to $2,000 a ticket for the chance to rub elbows with Lundqvist and his teammates. Rangers captain, Ryan McDonagh, who was dressed by John Varvatos for the evening, was dealing blackjack, while other players mingled and chatted with the fans.

Lundqvist, arguably hockey’s best-dressed player, donned a patterned midnight blue tuxedo by Swedish designer Stephen F. “He has his own store in the Meatpacking District, across from the Standard Hotel,” Lundqvist said. “I love his suits and coats.”

He said the European sizing of F’s collection usually fits him well and doesn’t require much tailoring. “We just do a few tweaks,” he said.

Lundqvist said he enjoys the opportunity to see his teammates dress in formalwear, although “I see them in suits four or five days a week,” he said. “But this is for a great cause and the guys enjoy it.”

He said in the 11 years he’s been attending the event, he’s seen his teammates’ sense of style improve. “The contrast was bigger before,” he said. “Now I feel like it’s a different time and they care about their style.”

They also care about the standings. The Rangers are currently in second place in their division and Lundqvist is confident that the team can prevail. “I believe we can go all the way,” he said. “We have the team to do it. I know a lot of other teams feel the same way, but we’re hungry.”

Henrik Lundqvist Continues to Ascend on NHL's All-Time Goalie Lists

ShareThis

With his 30th victory of the season Thursday, Henrik Lundqvist accomplished something no goaltender — not Martin Brodeur, not Patrick Roy, not Dominik Hasek — ever has before. Lundqvist’s win over the St. Louis Blues made him the first goaltender in league history to win 30 games in 10 of his first 11 seasons, and there’s reason to believe he could be chasing down one of the all-time greats.

Lundqvist, 33, now sits at 369 career wins, good enough to tie him with Tom Barrasso for 16th all-time. But it’s not as if Lundqvist is done yet and by the time the season ends, there’s a chance he’ll be celebrating win 380, which will be enough to put Lundqvist ahead of Andy Moog, John Vanbiesbrouck and only five back of passing Mike Vernon.

Lundqvist’s win over the St. Louis Blues made him the first goaltender in league history to win 30 games in 10 of his first 11 seasons, and there’s reason to believe he could be chasing down one of the all-time greats.

Lundqvist, 33, now sits at 369 career wins, good enough to tie him with Tom Barrasso for 16th all-time. But it’s not as if Lundqvist is done yet and by the time the season ends, there’s a chance he’ll be celebrating win 380, which will be enough to put Lundqvist ahead of Andy Moog, John Vanbiesbrouck and only five back of passing Mike Vernon.

Lundqvist’s feat is incredibly impressive, and more impressive yet is that were it not for the lockout-shortened 2012-13 campaign, he likely would have 11-straight 30-plus victory seasons. In the 43 games Lundqvist played that season, he won 24 games. If that were a full season, Lundqvist would have easily passed the 30-win plateau and 40 would have been within reach.

Even without those extra 16 wins, though, there’s reason to believe Lundqvist could end his career as one of the most successful goaltenders of all time. And there’s a real shot he could be chasing down the legendary Roy for second on the all-time wins list.
If Lundqvist finishes this season slightly off his current pace, say he closes the campaign with 35 wins, that puts him at 374 for his career. Using his full seasons, of which there are 11, Lundqvist has averaged 35 wins per season over each 82-game campaign he has played. Lundqvist still has five years and $38.5 million to be paid out on his current contract, and if he doesn’t hang them up before his deal ends and maintains his form, that would be an additional 175 wins.

Of course, there’s a massive caveat to this: his health. Incredibly, Lundqvist’s only major injury in his career came last season on a freak injury when he caught a puck in the throat. The injury caused Lundqvist to miss 24 games, and it was the first time in his career he had missed more than seven games in a row. In fact, before the throat injury, Lundqvist had missed 13 games in nine seasons. Maintaining his health is what has allowed Lundqvist to string together 30-win seasons in succession throughout his career.

That said, an additional 175 wins over the next five seasons would mean a 39-year-old Lundqvist would finish his current contract with the Rangers having somewhere in the range of 550 career victories. And that’s a low estimation, given this is assuming he doesn’t reach the 40-win mark this season, but it would still put him short of Roy. He ended his career 551 victories and hung up his skates at 37. The difference, though, is that Lundqvist didn’t debut in the league until he was 23. Roy started as a 20-year-old.

If Lundqvist did come up shy, though, it’s not beyond the realm of possibility to see him continue on in New York — or elsewhere, if that’s what it came to. Over the past several seasons, there has been no indication that Lundqvist’s game is anywhere near falling off and few would question at this point whether his longevity will be an issue. Really, it’s been almost the exact opposite. Since 2008-09, when Lundqvist posted a career-low .912 save percentage as a 25-year-old, his save percentage has never been below .920. Furthermore, there hasn’t been a single season in the past seven seasons where his 5-on-5 save percentage has been below .929, and this season he’s the league-leader of goaltenders to play at least 1,000 5-on-5 minutes with a SP of .943. His game has been trending up over the past three seasons, which is a scary thought for shooters.

That gives the outside chance that Lundqvist, as far-fetched as it may seem, could actually become the second 600-win goaltender in league history or challenge the all-time wins record held by Brodeur at 691. If Lundqvist’s win total can stay closer to 40 for the next few seasons before his contract comes up, he’d be little more than 120 back of Brodeur. The only issue then is continuing to keep it up after age 40.

Worth noting, though, is that even if Lundqvist does get past Roy, and even if he comes close to reaching Brodeur, Penguins goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury could give Brodeur, Roy and Lundqvist a run for their money. Two years Lundqvist’s junior, Fleury is only 23 wins back of the Rangers netminder as of Friday. By season’s end, that could be even fewer, and Fleury’s Penguins look like a team that could rack up significant win totals over the remaining three seasons of his deal. Fleury started younger — he was 21 during his first full season — and could potentially have a longer career simply based on that. If he keeps up his current win pace and stuck around in his 40s, there’s an outside shot at a 680-plus win career.

Still, though, Lundqvist will remain the first to win 30 games in 10 of 11 years to start a career. And, really, it would have been all 11 if not for the lockout that claimed half a campaign. That’s an incredible mark to hit, especially given the company he’s edged out. There’s a good chance before his time with the Rangers, he’ll also be celebrating passing Roy on the wins list.
