Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Henrik Lundqvist
Henrik Lundqvist was born May 2, 1982 in Are, Sweden. The seventh round, 205th overall selection of the New York Rangers in the 2000 NHL Entry Draft, Lundqvist honed his skills in the SEL.

For seven seasons, Lundqvist suited up for Vastra Frolunda leading the club to the 2003 Swedish Elite League championship. In his final season with the club before opting to make his North American debut, Lundqvist posted a 33-8-3 record, along with a 1.79 GAA and .936 save percentage.

In the fall of 2005, Lundqvist made his NHL debut with the Rangers and was instrumental in leading his team to the post season.

Lundqvist immediately emerged as one of the NHL's premier goaltenders. In his first three seasons with the Rangers, he posted impressive goal-against-averages of 2.24, 2.34 and 2.23 respectively and was nominated for the Vezina Trophy each year.

At the 2006 Olympic Winter Games held in Turin, Italy, Lundqvist was a key member of the Swedish team that captured the gold medal. He allowed only 12 goals in the tournament and posted an impressive .907 save percentage.

After a three year hiatus from Vezina nomination, Lundqvist was again on the ballot following a sparkling 2011-12 season. His microscopic 1.97 goals-against-average and impressive .930 save percentage were enough to earn the "King" his first Vezina crown as the NHL's best goaltender.

On February 11, 2017, Lundqvist recorded his 400th win in a 4-2 victory over the Colorado Avalanche. In doing so, Lundqvist became the twelfth player in NHL history to record 400 wins and the the first by a European-born goaltender to accomplish the feat.
