New York Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist has been absolutely beastly on net, in this year's Stanley Cup playoffs. The Montreal Canadiens, their opponent in the Eastern Conference Final, lost Game 2, not so much because of the absence of their injury starting goalie, as it was the presence of the Rangers' starting goalie. King Henrik, as he is respectfully known, & Co. absolutely stoned the high-flying, high-pressure Canadiens. Enjoy the highlight reel above.
But here we are talking fashion. Because their ubiquitous profile in the media, athletes really have loads of opportunity to present themselves creatively and fashionably. Fans don't often see who they really are and what they really look like, underneath a mountain of gear or in the swirl of their sport.

So off the ice, Lundqvist is in perfect position to showcase his handsome looks and easygoing style, which I imagine the guys want to emulate and the ladies want to be with.
I am often glad to see athletes get into business, while they're still in the midst of their sports. What they do has such a brutal, wearying impact on their body, that 30s is old and a prompt for retirement. In fact it was early this year we saw Bread & Boxers Announces Partnership with Henrik Lundqvist. I imagine the King has positioned himself in good stead for that inevitable transition to retirement.
Thank you for reading, and let me know what you think!
