Henrik Lundqvist health update: "Good news from the doctors"
Henrik Lundqvist was in Cleveland when he updated fans on Instagram. "Good news from the doctors," he wrote. "My heart inflammation is down and it's all moving in the right direction. Been months since I was really active, hoping to be 100% soon."
The health news came with a photo of the New York Rangers great outside the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland. With his update, Lundqvist wrote: "What do you do with extra time in Cleveland? You go to Rock & Roll Hall of Fame of course."
In the photo, the always fashionable Swede wore sunglasses with a leather jacket, dark pants, and some seriously white shoes.
Henrik Lundqvist last played in the NHL in 2020. He planned to return with the Washington Capitals in the 2020-21 season, but his heart issues thwarted that plan and he ultimately retired.
Today, Lundqvist is an in-studio analyst for the New York Rangers on MSG and with the NHL on TNT. We continue to wish him well.
