In The Hockey News, they look at each team in the league and decide which current player is the most hated by that team’s fans.
For the Islanders, that player is Henrik Lundqvist.
They write “Maybe fans hate Henrik Lundqvist because they look in their own team’s net and see the oft-injured Rick DiPetro taking up valuable cap space. Maybe it’s because Lundqvist had a 2007 run-in with an Isles ice girl trying to clear the snow around his net. Regardless, the suave goalie always will get a rough reception at Nassau-and, soon enough, at Barclays.”
Lundqvist is 13-7-1 in his career at the Nassau Coliseum.
