Pete Jensen of NHL.com compiled a list of the top active NHL players without a Stanley Cup ring.
Atop the list was New York Rangers goaltender Henrik Lundqvist who will be entering his 14th NHL season at the start of the 2018-19 season. The Swedish goaltender has been one of the best goaltenders since entering the league, winning 30 games in 11 of his 12 full NHL seasons. However, with the Rangers entering a rebuilding phase, the 36-year-old goaltender might need to find another team if he wants to lift the Stanley Cup. He has three years remaining on his deal at a cap hit of $8.5million. The complete list can be seen by clicking on the link below. Jun 9 - 5:33 PM

Henrik Lundqvist is optimistic about new Rangers bench boss David Quinn.

Lundqvist also doesn't believe it matters that Quinn will be moving to the NHL after spending the previous five seasons and much of his coaching career in the NCAA. "I’m excited to see what he can bring to the table," Lundqvist said. "College or NHL, to me it really doesn’t matter. What matters is the knowledge of the game and how to use it the best way possible. Every time you get a new coach it’s an opportunity to learn new things and see the game a little different. I’m looking forward to getting to know [Quinn] and his style of coaching." The goaltender also added that he's in good health. He's already started skating rather than waiting until early August like he normally does.

The Rangers are looking for their next head coach to be someone who will be able to develop their young players.

The Rangers have made some efforts to rebuild and it will be the next bench boss' job to make the most out of the young talent they have and will acquire through that process. "We’re looking for someone who can develop players and develop a team," executive chairman Jim Dolan said. "We want someone who is going to be able to work with young players — all of our players, really — so that they and we improve from one stage of the season to the next and we’re better at the end of the year than at the beginning." Dolan added that he felt former head coach Alain Vigneault was good for a developed team. It seems though that the Rangers want something different going forward and given the roster they're likely to dress, that makes sense.

After announcing that they would begin a rebuild, the New York Rangers told Henrik Lundqvist that they would attempt to trade him if that's what he wanted, but he decided to stay with the franchise.

"We told Hank that if he didn’t want to ride it out through this process, we’d find a good landing place for him," executive chairman Jim Dolan said. "But he said that he wanted to stay and see it through. I’m very happy that’s the way he feels. I think with him at the top of his game, that gives us our best chance of competing for a playoff spot next year." Lundqvist is 36-years-old, so it would be entirely understandable if he didn't want to be around for the Rangers' rebuild. At the same time, this is the only team he's ever known, so we can also understand why he would want to finish out his career in New York. He had a 26-26-7 record, 2.98 GAA, and .915 save percentage in 63 games in 2017-18, which aren't great numbers by his standards, but the Rangers' woes as a team likely contributed to this being a down year for him.

Henrik Lundqvist will not suit up for Sweden at the upcoming World Hockey Championships in Denmark.

Instead the Rangers goalie will undergo platelet-rich plasma treatment for his injured knee. He will need to rest and relax for three weeks before he can start with his off-season training schedule. Lundqvist is not an elite goaltender anymore and should be drafted as a middling second goalie in most pools after going 26-26-7 with a 2.98 GAA and a .915 save percentage.

Henrik Lundqvist was dealing with a knee injury this season.

Lundqvist still played in 63 games, but that injury might partially explain his decline in 2017-18. He finished with a 26-26-7 record, 2.98 GAA, and .915 save percentage. Now that the season's over, he's going to have an MRI on his knee to determine if it needs any work done.
Apr 10 - 12:09 PM

The New York Rangers aren't necessarily looking for a head coach with NHL experience as a bench boss.

It looks like Rangers GM Jeff Gorton wants to evaluate a wide range of options before picking Alain Vigneault’s successor. "We’ll look anywhere," Gorton said. "I think ‘fresh’ is a good word. We’re looking for somebody that can help us get back to an identity we want to get to. We’re looking to go through this process and hear some ideas from some people about how we can move forward with the makeup of our team." While Gorton is willing to consider those without NHL experience, he does want someone with some past coaching experience, so picking a high-profile retired player like Mark Messier would seem to be a non-starter. Rather, it sounds like the Rangers might be looking to the AHL pool to find the Rangers' next bench boss in addition to evaluating more veteran options.

Henrik Lundqvist allowed five goals on 40 shots in loss to the Philadelphia Flyers.

Lundqvist never stood much of a chance with the Flyers skating circles around his teammates all afternoon. The 36-year-old goaltender will miss out on the post-season for the first time since the 2009-10 season when the same Flyers eliminated the Rangers in the very last game of the regular season. King Henrik will go into the off-season with a 26-26-7 record, a 2.98 goals-against-average and a .915 save percentage.
Apr 7 - 5:59 PM

Henrik Lundqvist will play between the pipes in the Rangers' finale on Saturday.

Before that, Lundqvist will be getting Thursday's game off. This has been a rough campaign for him as he has a 26-25-7 record, 2.95 GAA, and .915 save percentage in 62 games this season.
Apr 4 - 3:21 PM

Henrik Lundqvist allowed five goals on 44 shots in Tuesday's 5-2 loss to the New Jersey Devils.

The Devils beat Lundqvist twice in the first four minutes of the game and they never looked back. Three of the goals he allowed came while the Rangers were shorthanded. Lundqvist has now dropped has six of his last seven games. He has a 26-25-7 record with a 2.95 goals-against-average and a .915 save percentage this season. He probably can't wait for this season to be over.
Apr 3 - 9:57 PM

Henrik Lundqvist will get the call for Tuesday's game against New Jersey.

Lundqvist was excellent in Saturday's win over Carolina when he stopped 40 shots. He has a record of 26-24-7 this year with a 2.91 goals-against average and .916 save percentage.
Apr 3 - 5:43 PM

Henrik Lundqvist doesn't want to see the 2018-19 campaign be dismissed as a transitional season for the Rangers.

The Rangers have been focused on rebuilding this season and have made trades to that effect. Lundqvist, 36, understands that, but he wants to see the Rangers bounce back in 2018-19. "Next year has to be about winning and nothing else," he said. "I understand that the end now has been about the young guys getting used to the league and getting confidence, but next year is not about the process. It’s about winning games." Lundqvist will also be looking to bounce back as this has been a rough campaign with him as he's posted a 2.91 GAA and .916 save percentage in 61 contests. That high GAA is at least in part due to the Rangers' aforementioned rebuilding process though.

Henrik Lundqvist made 40 saves in a 2-1 victory over the Carolina Hurricanes on Saturday night.

Lundqvist got the start in the second of a back-to-back for the Rangers. He got the best of Carolina on Saturday, shutting the door on all but one shot. Lundqvist's record improves to 26-24-7 with a 2.91 GAA and a .916 save percentage.

Henrik Lundqvist will get the start in Saturday's game against the Hurricanes.

Lundqvist owns a 25-24-7 record with a 2.94 goals-against-average and a .915 save percentage this season. The Rangers lost to the Bolts last night, but Ondrej Pavelec was between the pipes for that one.
Mar 31 - 6:33 PM

Henrik Lundqvist is the Rangers' probable starter Saturday night against the Hurricanes.

Backup Ondrej Pavelec started and lost Friday night's contest against the Lightning giving up six goals on 43 shots, so it is a very good bet Lundqvist will guard the net Saturday night. Lundqvist has a 25-24-7 record with a 2.94 goals-against average and .915 save percentage this season.
