Henrik Lundqvist is known as “King Lundqvist,” but did you know his kingdom includes an actual professional hockey team? And that it’s not even the team he plays for? The New York Rangers goalie actually owns the Washington Capitals. That’s according to Wikipedia, so you know it’s true. It’s actually not true, of course. The Rangers netminder doesn’t own an NHL team. However, one Internet prankster decided to alter the Capitals’ page on Wikipedia by editing it to say that Lundqvist — not Ted Leonsis — is the owner of the club. It’s since been changed back, so it’s not the first scoop in Wikipedia entry, rather the latest in a long line of pranksters editing pages. As one of the NHL’s best goalies, Lundqvist could make the claim that he “owns” many teams in the NHL. His numbers against the Caps, however, probably aren’t good enough to back that up. He’s 15-7-3 with a 2.56 goals against and a .907 save percentage against Washington for his career. Good numbers, sure, but not quite “owning.” Lundqvist did pitch a shutout against the Caps on Wednesday night, stopping all 22 he shots he faced in his first shutout of the season. See a screen shot of the Wikipedia entry before it was edited via Imgur and Reddit. Filed under: Headlines, New York Rangers, NHL
