A Glam Slam:
He’s recognized by many as one of the best-dressed athletes, but Henrik Lunqvist wasn’t always a fashion maven. In a new feature on MrPorter.com, the Swedish goaltender and sports style icon admitted that he wasn’t very into clothes until the age of 16 or 17. And hockey is partly responsible for his sartorial upgrade.
“I started to make my own money as a hockey player which was a big step in being able to buy clothes. I remember my first really big purchase was a leather jacket. It was a big deal. It was expensive for me at the time. I was a little nervous about it, I went for it, I used it for a year and then I threw it out.”
Within the video, “The Way I Dress,” Henrik discusses his fashion evolution which included learning from mistakes to develop a sense of style that made him feel most comfortable. And as with many pro athletes, making the move to New York meant provided opportunities for a wardrobe upgrade.
“Coming from Sweden I had a different style compared to a lot of Americans and Canadians. I heard a lot of comments about my style, my suits and my skinny jeans. It was definitely a different look.”
Nowadays Lundqvist’s fashion sense rarely comes into question. Instead, he’s the leader of a fashion-consious New York Rangers team and he’s known for his impeccable suiting style. In “The Way I Dress,” he can be seen getting ready for a night on the town, with a fitted tux from Yves Saint Laurent, a crisp white shirt from Burberry Prorsum and a bow tie from Lanvin.

There have been a few injuries among the Rangers and the prospects over the past few weeks, none of which have really been publicized too much. But it’s worth noting the following guys who have been injured (anything that says current means they are currently battling the injury):

Listen I know it's not for the Rangers but this is a sweet goal by Derek Stepan for his Finnish team KalPa (:30 mark)...

...you don't normally see highlight reel goals from Stepan like that. Maybe he's looking to add some some razzle dazzle to his game overseas. Let's hope he doesn't bring back some of the defensive deficiencies...

"I still don't think, if (the NHL owners') last quote is 'great offer, but you need to make another and we're not budging,' I don't know what a mediator is going to be able to do."

Actions often speak louder than words. As the NHL and the players are stuck in a PR battle, it's easy for each side to spin things however they want them to appear. Actions, though, speak for themselves.
Some players made the best of the situation and helped to organize a charity game in Atlantic City, a trip that was not so convenient for many of the attendees (Henrik Lundqvist...
