Henrik Lundqvist has not yet gotten any preseason action in.
How could he, when he was playing for Team Sweden at the World Cup of Hockey up in Toronto? The Swedes made it to the semifinals, so they were busy up until about a week ago.
And from there, it takes a bit of time to get back properly. There’s disbanding, there’s recovery, there’s physically getting yourself back to the place you’re going to live for much of the year.
But now, Lundqvist is finally - finally - back where he belongs. And he says hi.
Great feeling to be back on the ice today with the boys. Really excited to get going. Almost 4 months away from NYC, so happy to be back!— Henrik Lundqvist (@HLundqvist30) October 1, 2016
Four months away from NYC? That’s a really long time. Too long. Hopefully he won’t be going anywhere for a really long time this season!
Oh yeah - that looks much better.
