Fans of the NHL are very aware of how a superstar player is performing throughout the year, whether it’s good or bad.  Fantasy hockey is becoming more and more popular with each season and social media even allows fans to follow their teams with up-to-the-minute information.  What you don’t often hear about is their off-ice activities – unless it is something negative.

The players of the National Hockey League have lives “off the ice”.  This week we look at the most popular New York Ranger, and arguably the best goaltender in the league right now, Henrik Lundqvist.

 Most might have heard that Henrik, once a very eligible bachelor, has recently tied the knot.  In the second week of this past August, Lundqvist and now wife Therese Anderson were married in the Caribbean.  

Although the information about his wedding may seem like common knowledge to most loyal followers, Did you know that Henrik is a part owner of a small restaurant in New York City called ‘Tiny’s’?  With no intention of actually making money on this endeavor, Lundqvist simply enjoys spending time here with friends and family sometimes after a home game.

 When he’s not playing hockey, practicing or spending time at Tiny’s, Henrik spends time with his friends and frequents charity events, helping raise money for the less fortunate including the Children’s Tumor Foundation. 

It seems Henrik is loving his stay Manhattan.  There are many spots that he has been known to frequent including La Esquina in Nolita, The Gramercy Park Hotel’s Rose Bar and Club 1 Oak.  Henrik also likes stopping by Sean Avery’s place, Warren77, to show off his guitar playing skills for the crowd and possibly enjoy a Grey Goose and Red Bull or two. 

It’s not all about NYC for Henrik though he splits time between his Manhattan penthouse and his place in Gothenburg,Sweden during the year.  He also has a place in South Beach,Miami but that is considered more of a vacation spot. 

Henrik enjoys golf and playing with his Swedish band, Boxplay, back in his hometown and hopes to start a second band in New York. However, King Henrik can’t come up with a good name so for now that is on hold. 

Right now Henrik is living the good life in the greatest city in the world and is quickly making a name for himself as one of the great starting goalies the city has ever seen.  While a Stanley Cup Championship might help him seal the deal, he will have to settle for Olympic gold.
