Goaltender, New York Rangers
Henrik Lundqvist is a Swedish professional ice hockey goaltender for the New York Rangers of the National Hockey League (NHL). Before winning the Vezina Trophy in 2012, he was nominated in each of his first three seasons, and is the only goaltender in NHL history to record 30 wins in each of his first seven seasons.
His dominating play during his rookie season resulted in the New York media and Rangers fans giving him the nickname "King Henrik." During the 2006 Winter Olympics in Torino, Italy, he led the Swedish men's team to their second Olympic gold medal.
In 2009, Lundqvist became the Rangers spokesman for the Garden of Dreams Foundation. In 2012, Lundqvist launched the Crown Collection, sold exclusively at Madison Square Garden, with a portion of the proceeds going to Garden of Dreams.
In 2004, he was awarded Best Dressed in Sweden. In April 2006 he was named one of People's World's 100 Most Beautiful People. In December 2008, he was named one of Page Six Magazine's Top 25 Best Dressed in 2008. In 2011 he was named Town & Country's top 100 people in the world to meet. Lundqvist plays guitar in a band called "Noise Upstairs." He is married and has a daughter named Charlise.
