Henrik Lundqvist will design the much anticipated third jersey for the New York Rangers 2010 season.
New York, NY (PRBuzz) April 1, 2010 -- The New York Rangers are proud to announce that the third jersey of the 2010 hockey season will be designed by Henrik Lundqvist with Tiger of Sweden producing the jersey uniform.

The bulky pads will be replaced by kevlar which conforms to the body for a thinner look. The jersey will have a collar and french cuffs but will still allow enough movement for the Rangers to get the job done. "We don't want to inhibit their movement, just make them look better." says a Tiger of Sweden representative Fippa Brandonstad.
Thanks to the slimming new kevlar protection, the bulky shorts will be changed to slimmer fitting and longer jersey pants. "When you dress good, you feel good and play good." states Henrik Lundqvist as to the reason for the stylish redesign of the jerseys. As to Henrik's reason for the shorts being changed to slimmer pants? "I don't like having a big butt. The camera in the net always shows me having a large butt and I don't like it."
