Henrik Lundqvist revealed at Blueshirts United that he had Rick Nash over to his apartment a few weeks ago to get to know him better.
Lundqvist said that he was very up front with Nash about his move to the Rangers.
“I told him ‘you deserve this. You deserve to play on a big stage, you are a great player’ I think there is a great opportunity for us and for him to show the hockey world how good he really is. I don’t think he has gotten enough attention to his game. I’m excited he is here and I know he is excited to be here.
