Henrik Lundqvist is done with hockey.

The legendary New York Rangers netminder announced his decision to retire on Friday after 15 incredible seasons in the NHL.

“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,” said Lundqvist.

“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.”

The 39-year old posted a 459-310-96 record, 2.43 goals-against average, .918 save percentage and 64 shutouts over a span of 887 career games, all with the Rangers organization.

He had signed with the Washington Capitals last season, but was unable to play due to a heart condition. He underwent successful open heart surgery in January.

This season is already a write off for the Montreal Canadiens, we know that. But this is essentially the icing on the cake for what has become a disastrous season for the 2021 Stanley Cup finalists.

The team announced that veteran netminder Josh Allen will be sidelined for at least the next eight weeks due to an undisclosed lower body injury.

He hasn’t played since hurting himself during the team’s 5-1 loss to the Boston Bruins on January 12th.

Allen has posted a 5-16-2 record with a 3.15 goals-against average and .901 save percentage in 24 games this season.

Jack Eichel expected to be out another ‘month or two’ before making Golden Knights debut

It may take a little longer than initially expected for Jack Eichel to make his highly-anticipated Vegas Golden Knights debut.

Golden Knights bench boss Peter DeBoer spoke to the media about Eichel’s recovery timeline, and essentially put to bed the rumours that the All-Star forward could return is imminent.

“It’s going to be at least a month or two months before he plays,” said DeBoer.

“Being around the guys every day, he’s going to be coming on the road with us, on the trip at the end of the month here and start traveling with us, which provides great team-building opportunities”

The 25-year old star, who is currently practicing with the team as a no-contact participant, was traded to the Golden Knights in a blockbuster deal back in early November 2021 that sent forwards Peyton Krebs and Alex Tuch, a top 10 protected first-round pick in the 2022 NHL Draft, and a second-round pick in the 2023 NHL Draft to the Buffalo Sabres.

Eichel has not played since March 7, 2021 due to a lingering neck injury, which led to him having controversial artificial disk replacement surgery shortly after he was acquired by the Golden Knights on November 12.

The former second overall pick has posted 139 goals and 216 assists over a span of 375 combined games and six NHL seasons.
