Henrik Lundqvist was one of the most dominant players we’ve seen over the past decade. And he definitely has a place in New York Rangers history as one of the best goaltenders to lace em up.

In doing so, the 39-year-old sent a long message to social media to make his announcement.
“For the last 30 years, I have devoted my life to the game of hockey…and now it’s time to walk away from the game I love and begin a new chapter,” Henrik Lundqvist wrote. “The future excites me. I’ve met so many amazing people over the years that will help to guide and inspire me in my new journey.”
