Powered by imdb

Henrik Lundqvist was born in Are, Sweden on March 2, 1982, son of Eva Johansson and Peter Lundqvist. He has an identical twin, Joel (also a professional hockey player), and an older sister, Gabriella. Henrik - "Hank" to his teammates - was selected by the New York Rangers in the 7th round of the 2000 NHL entry draft and made his NHL debut on October 8, 2005. He started with a bang, breaking the Rangers' franchise record for wins by a rookie goaltender, with 30. It was early in his second season that New York fans bestowed on him his nickname, "The King of New York", or just "King Henrik." Since that time he has established himself as one of the top netminders in the NHL; posting 6 consecutive 30+ win seasons to start his career, an NHL record. He is also well known among Ranger fans and the people of New York for his strong personal style and Scandinavian good looks, having been named "Sexiest Man on Ice" in 2009 by Page Six magazine and featured on People magazine's annual "100 Most Beautiful People" list in 2006. He is the co-owner of a restaurant, Tiny's, in the TriBeCa neighborhood of New York City. In August 2011, he married his longtime girlfriend Therese Anderson, and in October 2011 began his 7th season as the Rangers' starting goaltender.  See full bio on IMDb »
