Longtime New York Rangers goaltender Henrik Lundqvist shocked the hockey world twice this past offseason. Firstly when he announced he was signing with the rival Washington Capitals for the 2021 season and then secondly when he announced that he was withdrawing from the campaign due to a heart condition.
Well, it looks like King Henrik has yet another surprise up his sleeve because he's back on the ice! Earlier this week Lundqvist shared a quick video on social media earlier today showing him taking breakaway reps and looking awfully good in his movements.
Check it out:
Just a month after having heart surgery and the guy is back on the ice. What a machine! Here's hoping that Henrik can continue to progress in his recovery and get back on the ice for an NHL game. Just today Lundqvist provided yet another health update where he admitted that it will be months before he can make any firm decisions on his playing future.
I've got all my fingers and all my toes crossed for you, King Henrik! Long live The King!
