Note: Henrik Lundqvist Skated Yesterday/Hopeful An Extension can be done

Henrik LundqvistHenrik Lundqvist skated yesterday for the first time since the Rangers were eliminated by the Bruins in the second round of the playoffs.

Mattis Wikstrom, of Expressen, caught up with Lundqvist who skated for an hour and said that he is in the process of getting his rest but also starting to focus on next season and the goals that he has.

He was asked about John Tortorella and said that the team had good success with him as head coach and that personally, Lundqvist had some of his best seasons when Tortorella was coach.

Lundqvist said that he has spoken with new assistant coach, and fellow Swede, Ulf Samuelsson.

In terms of a contract extension, Lundqvist said that he has spoken with the Rangers about it and said, via google translate, “I hope we … yes, we’ll find a solution.”

One of the players that Lundqvist skated with, Fredrik Pettersson, said that the Lundqvist’s claims of being out of shape are “bull—-.”
