Henrik Lundqvist is famous for his work between the pipes as the oft-unbeatable goalie of the New York Rangers.
With a save percentage of .940 and seven shutouts on the season, one might think that the King works so hard on the ice that he doesn’t have time for anything else.
False. Every once in awhile he takes off the goalie gloves to learn some new chords.
Yes, this dreamboat of a hockey player also plays guitar. In a band. With John McEnroe.
On Wednesday, Lundqvist and McEnroe’s band, “The Noise Upstairs”, performed at a music venue in New York City as part of a “Rock of Dreams” concert. The event benefitted MSG’s Garden of Dreams Foundation and the Johnny Mac Tennis Project.
Lundqvist said after the event:
“It was great, and I am so happy that it happened…It was sold out, and I don’t have the final numbers, but I know we raised a lot of money for The Garden of Dreams and the Johnny Mac Tennis Project. That was the goal: to have a fun night and to raise a lot of money.”
In case the picture above wasn’t enough for you, there are more where that came from. So, King Henrik, Most Valuable Popstar? (Just kidding, he’s a rockstar, but MVR just doesn’t look right).
And in bonus Lundqvist coverage, guess who just announced he’s going to be a dad!
