The NY Rangers will open their season in Stockholm, Sweden this fall. All of Henrik's Swedish fans (the whole country?) can now fight to get tickets. This is actually really nice for the all the Swedes that can't make it to the US to catch their national hero in a game.
"It's going to be very exciting," said Henrik Lundqvist, who backstopped Sweden to a gold medal at the 2006 Olympics. "I heard some talks about it for the last few weeks, and to go to Sweden and play a couple of games, maybe even go to Gothenburg (for a preseason game) if that's going to happen - that's my hometown (and home of Frolunda, the team Lundqvist played for in the Swedish Elite League from 2000-05) and that would be very special."
