Henrik Lundqvist made his debut as an expert.
Then he was surprised – with an impeccable joke from his former goalkeeper colleague.
Henrik Lundqvist was the face of the entire New York Rangers organization for 15 seasons, as he was also one of the best goaltenders in the world. It was a heavy message for Lundqvist to end his career, which he was forced into due to a heart problem that was discovered.
The clean joke
But Lundqvist hasn’t completely given up on hockey, and last night when the Rangers made their home debut against the Dallas Stars, Lundqvist made his TV expert debut for Madison Square Garden’s own TV production. . The Swedish goalkeeper icon was accompanied in the studio by a presenter, as well as former goaltender Steve Valiquette, who served as a goaltender in the Rangers organization for most of his career.
Steve Valiquette was then, like all the other goalies back when Lundqvist was a Rangers goalie, a clear second goalie and during the Rangers era he had more to sit in the cabin than on the ice because it wasn’t was not the easiest thing. to prick “King Henrik”. And when Lundqvist made his studio debut as an expert, that’s exactly what Valiquette joked about.
“As if I were in a time machine!
When the cameras were on, Valiquette was sitting in the studio with a cap and a towel wrapped around his neck, as a second goalie often does when he is seated in the booth during games, and so just like Steve Valiquette does this often sitting down while Lundqvist excelled on the ice for the Rangers.
– It was exactly what it looked like for a few years, with Henrik Lundqvist in the middle and center, and Steve Valiquette next to it with a cap and a towel. We just wanted you to feel comfortable and at home, says the host.
Henrik Lundqvist also followed the joke, and responded quickly:
– I have the impression of coming out of a time machine! Steve with a towel and a chance to talk about Ranger hockey with all the fans back home. It feels good and thank you for giving me this chance, he said.
