Video and More Photos of Henrik Lundqvist's Bus Today

Tuesday, August 31, 2010

Thanks to Lady Vengeance on the HFboards we've got 2 videos and more photos of Henrik!

For some reason I can't get a photo in this post. I can't get on the net on my computer so I'm borrowing one and it's very obnoxious. Here's the link to Henrik on the top of the bus smiling:

And here's Henrik standing proud in front of the bus Is that a phone in his pocket? LOL

And here's that delightful hockey butt!


Henrik Lundqvist's New York Bus!

Thanks to @rangerstribune we have some terrific photos of Henrik and his bus from today! Currently Henrik is on top deck of the bus riding around New York City regaling everyone with tales of his youth. Awwwwww.

Best quote of the day about this bus is from gluvhand on the HFboards where he states

Cool. We have a goalie with a bus named after him and the Devils have a goalie with an ass the size of a bus.

Henrik at Informal Practice This Morning

Monday, August 30, 2010

Henrik and 10 others showed up to an informal practice this morning. Training camp actually starts on 9/17. Henrik survived three on three and then they all did laps around the rink. Henrik apparently has the 2nd darkest tan, which I find hard to believe as his latest photos show him pretty tan!

Henrik gets his double decker bus dedicated to him tomorrow so there should be some pics of that. A bus! You'd think he could get his own Maserati dealership but I guess a bus is a start.

Get Henrik Lundqvist For $50!

Sunday, August 29, 2010

Get your very own Henrik in your life for only $50. Fathead has a sale going on for the Henrik Lundqvist fathead graphic. Normally $100 it's now $50. It's comes with 6 smaller NY Rangers graphics too. Perfect for spicing up the decor of your house. The graphic is 4 feet x 4 feet so it's not life sized, but it's big enough that you can stand in front of it and dreamily stare into Henrik's eyes. Or whatever you plan to do with it.

It would go perfect on the wall by your big screen TV, or even in your bedroom across the room from your bed. Henrik could be the first thing you see in the morning and last thing you see at night! You can pretend you're Therese! But without fighting Henrik for the covers. Or kicking him to stop hogging the bed. Or rolling him over to get him to stop snoring. Or throwing him out of bed when he won't stop twitching and muttering about the worthless NY Rangers defense.


Flirty Henrik Lundqvist!

Saturday, August 28, 2010

Thanks to Trish for pointing out this video! It's an interview with a male reporter after the New Years Eve game 12/31/09 when Henrik got incensed at getting rushed in the net, broke his stick over the net and then screamed at the ref.

When the interviewer asked what Henrik said, Henrik laughed, tucked his head and did the 'look up through the eyelashes'! He followed that with a smirk, dimples and some very flirty eyes.

From Hendrick Henrik Lunquist Lundqvist Lundkist

From Hendrick Henrik Lunquist Lundqvist Lundkist

The Flirt!

I imagine that was his way of getting out of trouble when he was a kid. And it worked so well on the ladies it must be an automatic reaction when he realizes he's in trouble. Thank god the reporter was male. Otherwise a female reporter would have been in a dead faint! Henrik could conquer the world with that look!

Henrik's September Vogue Article & Scan

Friday, August 27, 2010

If you want the article in September's Vogue issue that mentions Henrik, has a quote by him, and has the photo of him all hot and bothered in his goalie gear, then go here. The New York Rangers put the pdf up on their site for all the fans! Thanks to Misty for letting me know.

NY Rangers Blog Fantasy Hockey League

No, fantasy hockey is not a game played by half naked men on ice. But it's a great idea.

From Hendrick Henrik Lunquist Lundqvist Lundkist

If you'd like to play in Yahoo's fantasy hockey league this season, and want to join a Rangers affiliate league, then you're in luck. The NY Rangers Blog has their fantasy hockey league going again.
Just an overwhelming response to the fantasy hockey league so far. We may need to setup at least four separate leagues!!! We may also have to go roto style not sure we can get an even amount of teams to make head-to-head work.

If anyone else is interested in joining e-mail me at

I'm actually doing a team for the first time but with the Rangers Tribune league. I saw their league signup on Twitter first. Can you join more than one league?
@rangerstribune Reminder: If you would like to join the Rangers Tribune fantasy hockey league (Yahoo!), let me know and I will DM you the information.

Feel free to join whatever fantasy league you want. You don't need to be very knowledgeable about hockey to play. My team is the Swedish Fish and will be filled with all Swedes. There's a lot of really good Swedish hockey players in the NHL: Zetterberg, Lundqvist, the Sedin twins. I hope I get Henrik Lundqvist in the draft!


Win a Ride with Henrik!

Thursday, August 26, 2010

Sorry, it's not in his Maserati or Lambo. And you'll have to share Henrik with 19 other people, but still it's something I'd like to win! New York's Gray Line has been honoring exemplary New Yorkers. The fourth person inducted into the Gray Line Ride of Fame is Henrik Lundqvist who is also the first sports inductee. That's quite an accomplishment!

Our next "Ride of Fame" inductee is New York Ranger's starting goaltender, Henrik Lundqvist.
From hank lundqvist
On August 31, at 12:30 pm, Henrik will be the fourth inductee to be honored by Gray Line New York, for his exemplary representation of New York City. Henrik is an Olympic gold medalist and the spokesperson for the Garden of Dreams Foundation. Since its inception in 2006, the Garden of Dreams Foundation has created once in a lifetime experiences at Madison Square Garden, Radio City Music Hall, the MSG Training Center, Fuse and the Beacon Theatre for more than 134,000 tri-state area children in crisis.

With getting inducted into the Ride of Fame, Henrik gets his own unique decal permanently applied to one red Gray Line New York double decker bus at ribbon-cutting ceremony. I wonder what his unique decal will look like?

Now on to winning a ride with Henrik on the bus August 31st.

@graylinenewyork First 20 to RT get on the tour bus with #NYRangers Henrik Lundqvist, August 31st @ 12pm in
#NYC #nyr #NHL

First 20 win? How about first 20,000? What a chance to meet Henrik, hopefully shake his hand and ride around town with him.

Is This a Photo of Henrik Lundqvist?

Ran across two photos, one people say is Henrik and the other looks like Henrik. But are they really photos of Henrik Lundqvist?

The first photo is from this blog back in August 2009. The blog says:

Very beautiful I've seen. Henrik Lundqvist of the NHL, the world's best-dressed man Tännforsen, in several giant cameras.

I don't think it's our guy Hank but could it be? The photo is named Henrik Lundqvist NHL. Pretty much everyone in the comments are swooning over Hank. I don't know though. Click through for a bigger photo.

The second photo is one I stumbled across and at first I really thought it was Hank circa 2006 when he had his longer haired bad boy look. You know, the one we all love? :)

From Hendrick Henrik Lunquist Lundqvist Lundkist

From Hendrick Henrik Lunquist Lundqvist Lundkist

I wondered if it was a photo no one had seen of Hank before, but no it's Tarkan from, a singer. Pretty close resemblance though. But we all know Henrik is the better looking one!


Henrik and Fashion Show Drama!

Wednesday, August 25, 2010

Wow. Just ran across a fashion blogger that was at the Tiger of Sweden show in Stockholm and had a front row seat to a little altercation that happened because another fashion blogger was pissed at Henrik!

You can see Henrik and Therese in the front row. She's in black and Henrik is in a gray suit. Our favorite Christmas tinsel shoulders is at the end of the row. You start to see Henrik at 19 seconds in.

Because of a seating mishap before the show started, two high-profile fashion bloggers were bumped off away from their seat to accommodate VIP guest, Swedish professional ice hockey player for the New York Rangers Henrik Lundqvist and his partner Therese.

One blogger graciously moved to another spot while the second blogger spat vitriol and exchanged stern words with the famous hockey player for being on the wrong seat, without, of course, knowing how big of a deal he is (the sports star).

In the end, show producers had to grab special chairs and sat the Olympic Gold medal player and his paramour in the opposite side of the front row. Eeek! I must say it was rather painful to watch!

Too bad that Henrik had to endure that blogger's tantrum. I can see how someone would be a bit miffed at being moved last minute to a less desirable spot, but Henrik was a guest of the Tiger of Sweden brand.

Not only that but Henrik really promotes the brand without getting paid for it. He's a well known hockey player idolized in Sweden and loved in the U.S. and has mentioned in many interviews that Tiger of Sweden is his favorite brand. He shops there every summer and flies back to New York with new clothes in August.

That's a VIP for the brand right there. Much more important than a fashion blogger that writes one page about the show. I think it was horrible behavior on part of that blogger to rip into Henrik!

Bigger Henrik Lundqvist Picture in Vogue

I've got a bigger scan of Henke in the Vogue issue. Notice the tousled, apres workout hair. The five o'clock shadow. The blue grey bedroom eyes. Imagine the heavy panting he was doing as he stood hot and bothered after a hard and long workout. ;)

Henrik Lundqvist Photos of Water Dripping Down His Body!

Tuesday, August 24, 2010

LOL So water's only dripping down his face, after he sprayed it on himself. But still! It's water running down! These are all screencaps I did from the svt video interview.

From Hendrick Henrik Lunquist Lundqvist Lundkist

These may very well be the only photos we ever see of water running off him. He really needs to come out with his own calendar.
From Hendrick Henrik Lunquist Lundqvist Lundkist

Getting filmed from below while drinking water had to have been a little odd and embarrassing. But it gives us this gratuitous shot of his long and gorgeous eyelashes! And his puckered lips. And scruffy gorgeous jaw. And his purdy purdy eyes. I guess the ears are just ok. LOL
From Hendrick Henrik Lunquist Lundqvist Lundkist

Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww. Love the cute smile. He's so adorable!

Win a Henrik Lundqvist Autographed Photo Card

The New York Rangers Facebook page is having a contest. Just like their post about Henrik appearing in Vogue and you could win a Henrik signed autograph card. Of course right now you'll be competing against 1,133 other people, but hey I know you'll win for sure! :)

And here's a photo of a young Henrik. This photo obviously taken before Henrik had perfected his fashion sense. The cufflinks are a nice touch but the tie is killing me.


Henrik's Coming Back Saturday!!!

I declare Saturday the 28th Official Henrikday! He's coming back on Saturday! I think we need a group of Henrik fans to meet him at the airport with cheers. I wonder if Avery will let us know what flight he's on so we can meet Hank with posters and bagels.

Feel free to stare at this 3 minute interview with Hank until he's back on TV. I love that shirt he's wearing. Yummy. Thanks to Trish for the heads up on this!

I can't believe how fast he is going side to side, backing up, etc. He's crazy fast. Like Jimmy Johns, except for hockey.

Oh, and apparently Sean Avery think Henrik is SEXY. Hmm....


Caption this Henrik & Banana Photo!

Monday, August 23, 2010

This photo of Henrik eating a banana (at least we think it is) has fascinated us all day. What a weird way to eat a banana and what a funny look on Henrik's face! Therefore I think we need a caption contest!

Go here to and make a Henrik caption! Post the link to your photo caption below so we can all enjoy our crazy captions!

LMAO Carol loves Henrik in his blue/white checked shirt!


More Henrik Photos from Tribute Game in Sweden

Henrik eating a banana while looking concerned? Worried? Scared he just bit into half a banana worm? Are there such things as banana worms?

I ran across some more photos of Henrik. The first two are of the public training hour. They show Henrik from the back, but that's ok. We can see more of his hockey butt that way!


Henke Lundqvist in Kenny Jonsson's Retirement Game

Sunday, August 22, 2010

Henke played one period in a farwell retirement game for Kenny Jonsson on Saturday. It was a tribute match for the former NHL star and national team member. It was played before packed Lindab Arena in Angelholm, Sweden.

From Henrik Lundqvist Hockey Goalie God Blog

He has two fingers taped and then it looks like more tape on his hand. Is this normal for goalies or is Henrik having some hand pain as well?

They were called Kenny's All Star Team and the biggest cheers were for Kenny's brother, Jorgen Jonsson, in his return to Angelholm, Henrik Lundqvist, Mats Sundin and Daniel Alfredsson.

There was a also apparently a one hour training session the day before the tribute game with Henrik in attendance. That's the photo with Henrik wearing the red jersey. He was besieged by autograph hounds after the training practice.

Lundqvist Craft Items To Buy!

Henrik is loved the world over, and apparently has inspired some craft items on Etsy.

The first is a Henrik Lundqvist camera strap.

This thing is awesome! It says Lundqvist across the back of the neck and in the front on strap it says NYR and the other 30. Perfect! I think I need to buy this before I go to the NY Rangers/Minnesota Whatevers game in November.

The next crafty item are Swedish Lapland bracelets on Etsy also.
You'll notice they don't actually say Henrik or Lundqvist or show his mug. But Henrik has been spotted wearing them! OMG Be just like Henrik and wear a Swedish Lapland bracelet! And the bracelets are pretty neat anyway.

From Henrik Lundqvist

Notice about four of the bracelets on Henrik's wrist in this photo.


Henrik Lundqvist's Bandit Radio Interview

Saturday, August 21, 2010

Thanks to reader Anna we have a summary of what Henrik was discussing with Bandit Radio during his interview. The interview while he was wearing the alleged leather pants.

From Hendrick Henrik Lunquist Lundqvist Lundkist

The interview summary:
They asked which NHL arena is best and which worst, and Henrik answered that Pittsburgh is worst but that they're building a new one. They also talked a bit about MSG, Henrik told for example that the ice actually is on the fifth floor of the building.

They talked a bit about injuries, Henrik said that for him it's mostly the knees and hips and that his knee is not perfect yet. He has basically been playing injured all year last season but he loves to play and is not there to sit on the bench. He's just learned to deal with the injuries.
They say the schedule is much tighter in NHL than in Sweden, hardly any time to give yourself a rest and a lot of travelling.

He also said he saw Denzel Washington in a Broadway play and that he was very good.

One of the interviewers said that they had spoken on the phone when Henrik was in NY for the first time, while he was still staying in a hotel. He had asked him what it was like to drive in NYC, and Hank had answered without a second of thought "I HATE it". Henrik laughed about that and said he had gotten used to it now and it's not a problem anymore.

Then they talked about the kayak accident, he basically told what we already knew about it. Henrik said they had been surprised by the wind, and one of the interviewers answered that they must have been even more surprised to see Henrik Lundqvist there. Hank answered that when he took the hand of one of the kayak guys to help him onto the boat, the first thing the guy said was: "I recognize you!!". They laughed quite a bit about that.

Henrik's Knee Is Still Painful.

Friday, August 20, 2010

This is not good news. According to Expressen even though Henrik has had a three month vacation he still has knee pain and even had a cortisone shot a month ago. Dear god what's going to happen this season if Henrik is going into the season still with knee pain?

Henrik was interviewed after NHL player's training in Frölundaborg. I believe this quote is about being on the New York Rangers team.

You're miserable, so far, really unlucky. And you are as surprised every year that is so bad. But, sadly, it is, "he says and laughs.

Yeah. It is bad. It doesn't seem like switching teams to get the Stanley Cup is an option for Henrik though.
He makes no secret of the fact that he is in the NHL to win the titles. But he has never thought about changing club address to more easily reach them.

Henrik also thinks that it will be a battle at the end for a playoff spot. As always.

For the past two weeks Henrik has been training and building his body back up with ten other NHL players in Frölundaborg. Hank still considers Gothenburg home but really likes New York City.

The other NHL players that Henrik is training with are: Daniel Alfredsson of the Ottawa Senators, Erik Karlsson of the Senators, VICTOR Stålberg of the Toronto Maple Leafs, Fredrik Sjöström of Toronto Maple Leafs, Joakim Andersson of Detroit Red Wings, Fredrik Pettersson of Atlanta Thrashers, LARS OR of Montreal, PHILIP LARSEN
of Dallas Stars, Loui Eriksson of Dallas Stars.

I'm a bit surprised they're all training together. Won't they learn Henrik's style and weaknesses? Will Henrik learn theirs?


Henrik Lundqvist at Tiger of Sweden Fashion Show

Thursday, August 19, 2010

Henrik showed up at the Tiger of Sweden fashion show during the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week. He was the best dressed there. No, seriously.

From Hendrick Henrik Lunquist Lundqvist Lundkist

I want you to go here and scroll down through all the pictures till you see a handsome and very tan guy dressed snazzy and remotely normal. It's Henrik.

You'll see why I mention 'normal' when you scroll through those photos. I especially love the ZZ Top wannabe and the Christmas silver tinsel shoulders chick. Are they all on crack over there? Who leaves their house looking like that?

He's got some amazingly long eyelashes, doesn't he?
