Lundqvist Uncertain Of Future With Rangers

Lundqvist Uncertain Of Future With Rangers

New York Rangers’ Swedish Goalie Henrik Lundqvist spoke with Swedish papers about what he sees happening when his current contract is up after the next two seasons.

Lundqvist is 37, and has two years remaining on his contract that was signed in 2013, each with a cap hit of $8.5 million.

The Rangers finished sixth in the Metropolitan Division this past season with 78 points, and missed the playoffs for the second consecutive season.

Since New York has stated to its fans that they are in the process of rebuilding the team in February of 2018, the Rangers have traded to acquire several draft picks, along with free up future cap space.

With Lundvist up in age, and the Rangers looking to make big changes regarding the future, who knows what the Rangers have in mind.

Lundvist stated he wishes to stay in New York for the entirety of his career, however is currently unsure if that will happen.

This past season Lundvist had a goals against average of 3.07, a save percentage of .907, and only started 52 games; statistically his worst season since being drafted in 2005 by the Rangers.

New York is expected to be an extremely active team this off-season, which certainly creates the possibility of some interesting decisions made by management.
