A photographer Ola Rockberg was at Henrik's Gold in the Net camp this summer and took some amazing photos. Henrik is at the camp only one day each week, but I bet that day is the highlight of everyone's week! Just think, you're a kid that has grown up with Henrik as your goalie idol especially after he helped Sweden win gold in the 2006 Olympics. And now you get him to help coach you! These kids have got to be freaking out.

Here's a group shot.
Henrik is laughing even though he's wearing atrocious knee high socks. What is wrong with his knee? He's said before that he's knock kneed, but is that lump part of the knock kneedness or is it bulging thigh muscle?
He looks so much older than 28 doesn't he?
Henrik remembering a funny hockey story that he's about to regale his young audience with. At least that's what it looks like.
Henrik is sad knowing someone photographed him wearing knee high white socks with shorts! If he has sandals on too I'll start crying. See his wonky knee?
They're hanging on his every word!
Another amazing photo of Henrik as Coach. When he's done with the NHL, if he goes back to Sweden to be a full time coach, I'm going to cry. How will we ever see him again? You know he probably will though. Wouldn't that be amazing if he coached a team to Olympic gold?
He looks so good as an instructor, really helping those kids out.
Where else can you go to get coaching from a current NHL player, Vezina trophy finalist, and Olympic gold medalist?
Henrik passing on knowledge of how to make those spectacular saves.
