Henrik welcomes you to the blog! LOL I just love this photo. So cute!
From here we've got some quotes from Henrik at practice this morning.
“I don’t look back too much,” said Lundqvist. “It’s more important to look ahead and be on the right side of things. But I do know that we have to be more consistent than we were last season. We played some really good hockey last year, but we were not nearly consistent enough.” He was happy to hear of the club’s signing of veteran goalie Martin Biron back on July 1.
“It was a really good move,” said Lundqvist, who won 35 games last season while posting a 2.38 goals against average and a .921 save percentage. “I don’t think for a regular season that 72 games is too much, but if you want to play into June, it is too much. And that should always be our goal, to go deep into the playoffs and play into June.”
And this quote from @stevezipay
Lundqvist on his early arrival: "I'm a slow starter...other guys, It doesn't matter, long as you're ready. No excuses for not being ready."
Now on to more photos!
This guy just cannot take a bad photo! Doesn't he look good?
LOL I can't just hear a New York accent with a Swedish accent saying "How YOU Doin'?".
This Vanna White photo is my absolute favorite! Henrik looks like he's about to crack up.
The Rangers Tribune got an interview with video with Henrik.
Nick Montemagno: What are your expectations for the season this year and are you looking forward to it yet?
Henrik Lundqvist: Ah, my expectations. Well I am happy to be back and all of the guys are excited to be back. I can't wait to start camp and get going. I guess we will see how it [the season] goes.
NM: How have the informal pre-camp skates been going?
HL: Very great. They are a lot of fun.
NM: I heard Zuccarello-Aasen had a slick goal on you this morning. (Referring to a nifty goal scored at yesterday's skate)
HL: (Laughing) Oh yeah, he is really good.
If you want to see 13 pages of photos from the event, go to Rob Loud Photos. And that's 13 pages of thumbnail photos! Here's my favorites:
I wish he'd taken his sunglasses off for at least some of the photos. But the amazing thing about this photo (other than he's happy to have his own bus or is that an iphone in his pocket?) is how small he is! He is so much bigger than life in the net but compared to the guy next to him and the girl, he's really not the big goalie I thought he was. He's not exceptionally tall or wide. I just thought with all those amazing saves, his larger than life presence he was a big guy in life. Huh. He's still amazing and gorgeous!
Again, Henrik is adorable and awesome!
Henrik is waiting for you to ride him. *ahem* I mean his bus, of course.
He looks quite smug here. And in a very superhero pose! I expect lots of upcoming "Henrik threw him under the bus" jokes during NY Rangers games from here on out.
