Off the Post: Rangers Fall to Flyers 4-0, Henrik Lundqvist Comments – On Friday, the New York Rangers fell to the Flyers 4-0 in their first of a four game game regular season series. The Rangers kept is close, and headed into the third period down 1-0. The Flyers planted the dagger in the third, scoring three goals to secure the win. Despite the loss, Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist was the second star of the game with 42 saves. After the game, he spoke with Russ Cohen about the tough loss.

Lundqvist has been ever present in net for New York since the 2005 season. He made his debut on October 8th, 2005. He would earn his first win a few days later on October 13th. His first shutout came in his rookie season when he held the Panthers scoreless on October 17th, 2005. He would finish that season as a finalist for the Vezina Trophy. You’ll find his rookie cards among many 2005-06 Upper Deck Hockey Products including his Young Guns rookie card in Upper Deck Hockey.

For the next few years, Lundqvist earned himself the nickname “King Henrik” for his spectacular athletic ability and work ethic. His play over his rookie contract earned him multiple extensions and team MVP awards. He was the first Rangers player to earn the team MVP award five consecutive times. On December 4th, 2013, Lundqvist signed a seven-year contract extension with New York. Look for Lundqvist’s cards among Upper Deck’s 2018-19 catalog of NHL hockey cards including O-Pee-Chee, MVP, Series One and many more to come!
