Henrik Lundqvist is a Swedish goalie on the New York Rangers.

Lunqvist was drafted by the Rangers in 2000, and has developed into one of the top goaltenders in the league. He then went on to play five seasons with Frolunda HC of the Swedish Elitserien, winning two titles in 2003 and 2005. He joined the Rangers in 2005, after the lockout, and won the starting job quickly, winning 20 of 54 starts in his rookie year and posting a 2.24 GAA. He was nominated for the Vezina Trophy in that season, as he was in each of the past two as well.

Lundqvist played for Team Sweden at a number of international competitions, including the 2006 Winter Olympics, where he won gold. He also won gold at the 2002 Inline Hockey World Championships, and two silver medals at the 2003 and 2004 World Championships.
