Henrik Lundqvist Discovers Heart Condition, Will Miss 2020-21 Season


After 15 seasons with the New York Rangers, legendary goaltender Henrik Lundqvist signed with the Washington Capitals this offseason on a one-year, $1.5 million deal. However, it was announced that the team will be without the 38-year old this season after he discovered a heart condition that will prevent him from being on the ice. Lundqvist spent weeks of testing before announcing the news.

Lundqvist (459) was the most winningest goaltender in franchise history with the Rangers. He accounted for 23,509 saves over the course of his career and played nearly 52,000 minutes. He was drafted with the 205th overall selection in the 2000 NHL Draft.
