Henrik Lundqvist led Team Sweden to 2-1 shootout victory over Canada in the gold medal game of the 2017 World Championship.
Lundqvist stopped 42 of 43 shots prior to the shootout and didn't surrender a single goal in four shootout rounds. He's certainly going into his summer training on a much more positive note after his Rangers were eliminated by the Ottawa Senators in the second round. He decided to play for Team Sweden in part because his brother Joel was the team captain, who he hadn't played with for 12 years. May 21 - 5:58 PM

Henrik Lundqvist will play for Team Sweden in the 2017 World Championship.

"My brother [Joel] is the captain there and I haven't played with him for 12 years," Lundqvist said. "Also the fact that we're not part of the Olympics. I see this as an opportunity to play for my country one more time and with my brother. I'm going to go there and try and finish really strong this season and I'm going to reflect." Lundqvist is 35 years old, so it's not too much of a stretch to say that this really could be his last time competing with Team Sweden, given that the NHL won't be participating in the Olympics. Henrik's brother, Joel Lundqvist, has played in 134 NHL games, but has been playing in the Swedish league since the 2009-10.

Henrik Lundqvist allowed three goals on 25 shots in Tuesday's 4-2 elimination loss to the Ottawa Senators.

Lundqvist closes out the postseason with a 6-6 record, a 2.25 goals-against-average and a .927 save percentage.
