Henrik Lundqvist [hɛn.'rɪk 'lɵnd.kvɪst] (born March 2, 1982, in Åre, Sweden) is a Swedish professional ice hockey goaltender for the New York Rangers of the National Hockey League (NHL). He has been nominated for the Vezina Trophy three times, finishing third the first two times with the third result yet to be released. His dominating play during his rookie season resulted in the New York media and Rangers fans giving him the nickname "King Henrik".[1] During the 2006 Winter Olympics in Torino, Italy, he led the Sweden national men's ice hockey team to their second Olympic Gold Medal.

Early life

Henrik and twin brother Joel were born to Eva Johansson and Peter Lundqvist. They grew up in Åre, Jämtland, an area where alpine skiing is the most popular winter activity, but Henrik and Joel chose to play ice hockey over the more popular winter sports. During the winters their kindergarten teachers used the kindergarten's 9x3 meter sandpit to freeze an outdoor ice rink where the twins would frequently skate. Their interest in hockey grew even larger when their father Peter took the twins to see Västra Frölunda HC play in Scandinavium, Gothenburg. Peter worked for a company who sponsored Frölunda, and Henrik and Joel saw many games in Scandinaium and Frölunda became their favourite team. In 1990 Henrik and Joel joined Järpens IF and started playing organized hockey for the first time. During one practice when the coach asked if anyone wanted to be a goaltender Joel grabbed and raised Henrik's arm and said that his brother would like to. In 1993 the family moved to Båstad, Scania, in southern Sweden to support older sister Gabriella's tennis career, and Henrik and Joel's hockey career. Henrik and Joel joined Rögle BK, and were both selected for Scania's team in Sverigepucken in 1995. Henrik was selected to play for Scania in TV-pucken in 1996, and in 1997 when Joel was also selected. During the 1997–98 season Henrik and Joel were extensively scouted by Västra Frölunda HC, and after having played for Rögle in the 1998 Scandinavium Cup in Gothenburg, Frölunda's junior team manager and U16 coach Janne Karlsson contacted their father Peter who told Henrik and Joel, about Frölunda's interest in them, while driving home to Båstad.

After having a successful pre-season, Lundqvist made his Elitserien debut in the season opener on September 21, 2000, in a 2–4 loss against Brynäs IF. Lundqvist bounced back and recorded his first win in the following away game against IF Björklöven, stopping 18 shots and only allowing one goal while being short handed. In his third straight start, Lundqvist allowed two early, first period goals in a game against Timrå IK and was pulled in favor of veteran keeper Håkan Algotsson. Lundqvist would dress for only ten more games this season and got only one start in a shootout loss to Djurgårdens IF. Lundqvist lost his roster spot to Canadian veteran keeper Pat Jablonski, who joined the team in October.

Malfeasance, I think in hindsight, that he didn't get to start in more games that season. He showed then that he was that good. He should have played more, no doubt about it.

Lundqvist played in nine games for IF Mölndal Hockey in the Swedish second tier Allsvenskan, before joining Frölunda's junior team in the J20 SuperElit in December. After his poor play in Allsvenskan, and a tough start in the J20 SuperElit, he allowed six goals in an exhibition game against Canada. National junior team coaches Bo "Kulon" Lennartsson and Mikael Tisell were worried and decided to have a talk with Lundqvist, where they questioned his motivation.[citation needed] Lundqvist's turning point came at the turn of the year at the 2001 World Junior Ice Hockey Championships in Moscow, Russia, where he led the Swedish national junior's team to a fourth place finish in the tournament. He spent the rest of the seasons in the J20 SuperElit where he played 18 games, leading the league in minutes played by a goaltender. In the playoffs, he led Frölunda to their second straight Anton Cup win, which came in a 5–2 win over Leksands IF in the final at the Stockholm Globe Arena.

A few days later on October 12, 2005, Lundqvist posted his first career NHL win against the Devils. His first career shutout came on October 17, 2005 against the Florida Panthers, and with it Lundqvist became the first rookie goaltender to record a shutout for the Rangers since John Vanbiesbrouck on January 2, 1985.[citation needed] During the season Lundqvist also became the first Rangers rookie to post 20 wins in a season since Mike Richter recorded 21 in 1990-91.[citation needed] Finishing the season with 30 wins, Lundqvist broke the Rangers rookie goaltending record of 29 wins, previously held by Jim Henry (1941-42) and Johnny Bower (1953-54).[citation needed] Lundqvist was among the league leaders in several categories: fifth in goals against average (2.24), fourth in save percentage (.922), 11th in wins (30), and tied for 16th in shutouts with two. His regular season success did not continue in the playoffs, where he appeared in three playoff games, posted a 0–3 record, a 4.40 goals against average, and an .835 save percentage in a series loss to the Devils.

The win was also the Rangers first home playoff win since Richter's shutout.[citation needed] For the second consecutive year, Lundqvist was a finalist being considered for the Vezina Trophy. Because Lundqvist was tied with Miikka Kiprusoff for third place in balloting, there were four finalists for an NHL individual trophy for the first time in league history.
