Henrik Lundqvist will be back between the pipes on Saturday at Boston or Sunday against the Washington Capitals.
"I think we'll have a discussion tomorrow, I'll see how it feels," Lundqvist said Thursday. "It's hard to say no to a game right now when you've been away for that long at the same you have to be smart about it. But I feel pretty close to being ready. We'll have that discussion tomorrow and we'll decide what game." He will dress as Cam Talbot's backup on Thursday night. Mar 26 - 4:04 PM

Henrik Lundqvist (neck) is officially off of the long-term injured reserve list.

Just in case you needed further proof that Lundqvist is ready to return. Lundqvist will serve as the backup goaltender on Thursday and will likely start on either Saturday or Sunday.
Mar 26 - 9:54 AM

Henrik Lundqvist (neck) is ready to rejoin the New York Rangers.

That's based on the fact that third-string goaltender Mackenzie Skapski has already been sent to the minors. Lundqvist will probably serve as the backup goaltender on Thursday before starting on Saturday or Sunday. His return will lead to Cam Talbot falling back into the number two slot, although Talbot could still end up getting a couple more starts this week.
Mar 25 - 12:23 PM

Henrik Lundqvist (neck) resumed practicing with the Rangers on Tuesday.

Lundqvist hopes to return to the Rangers' lineup before the end of the week. "That's my goal," said Lundqvist. "I need at least one or two more skates to work on my timing, I feel close. If you ask me, I wanted to play last week ... I'm expecting to play this week, what day, I'm not sure." His last game was on Feb. 2. Although Cam Talbot has done a great job filling in for Lundqvist, that doesn't change the fact that Lundqvist is expected to serve as the team's number one goaltender once he's ready.

Coach Alain Vigneault expects Henrik Lundqvist to be back on the ice with his teammates on Tuesday.

"The next team practice is on Wednesday and we'll have a morning skate on Tuesday which he'll be a part of," Vigneault said. "Until I see him and talk to him and know how he feels, I don’t have a time frame for you." That means Cam Talbot will probably play three games in four nights, starting with Saturday's match versus Carolina. Lundqvist was slated to be at practice on Friday, but he left the team to be with his wife so he could welcome his second daughter into the world.

Henrik Lundqvist has left the Rangers to be with his wife for the birth of their second child.

Lundqvist would have otherwise participated in his first practice since being temporarily shutdown due to a vascular injury in his neck. As you might expect, he won't join the Rangers on their one-game road trip to Carolina on Saturday.
Mar 20 - 1:02 PM

Henrik Lundqvist, the New York Rangers' longtime starting goalie, doesn't have a specific date when he might return to his team's lineup but he said Wednesday he is eager to resume his familiar role.

Lundqvist spoke to the media at Madison Square Garden Wednesday for the first time since the Rangers announced Tuesday he was cleared by doctors to begin practicing. "Hockey is such a big part of my life, and when you miss if for that long you feel a little off," Lundqvist said. "Physically I feel great, so now it's about getting out there and getting the timing right, getting comfortable in practice and game situations. When you're out this long, you start missing everything about the game. You miss coming to games and the pressure of the games; it made me appreciate the game even more." Lundqvist was injured Jan. 31 against the Carolina Hurricanes when a shot from forward Brad Malone deflected off the stick of Rangers defenseman Ryan McDonagh and struck Lundqvist in the throat. He remained in the game and then defeated the Florida Panthers two nights later before being diagnosed with a vascular injury in his neck.
Mar 18 - 10:35 PM

GM Glen Sather said Wednesday that Henrik Lundqvist needs about 10 days before he can resume playing.

"Just because he was cleared doesn't mean he's ready to return," Sather said. "I'd say a week to 10 days, probably closer to 10 days. The other thing about this is we want him ready for the end of the year. We're going to make the playoffs. He's gotta get some games." Lundqvist hasn't played since Feb. 2, but he was initially injured on Jan. 31 when he was struck in the throat by a shot.
Mar 18 - 6:51 PM

Henrik Lundqvist (neck) has been given the green light to take part in Rangers' practices.

That's a big step forward for Lundqvist, but there's still no timetable for his return. He hasn't played since Feb. 2, but he has been on the ice and taking low shots recently. Given how well Cam Talbot has done in Lundqvist's absence, the Rangers shouldn't feel pressured to rush the former Vezina Trophy winner.
Mar 17 - 3:52 PM

Look for Henrik Lundqvist (neck) to return to action as soon as he is medically cleared.

Lundqvist has been taking shots as he has been out since the beginning of February with a vascular injury. "When he’s cleared, I don’t expect it to be too long before he’s in goal," coach Alain Vigneault said. "My understanding is that his workouts have been very intense, so it shouldn’t take too long." Stay tuned.

Henrik Lundqvist (neck) was on the ice prior to Monday's practice.

Lundqvist took some low shots from goalie coach Benoit Allaire. There's still no timetable for his return though and he's now missed over a month due to the injury.
Mar 10 - 11:35 AM

After missing a little over a month, there's still no timetable for Henrik Lundqvist's return for a neck injury.

Lundqvist did talk about his condition a bit on ABC's "Live with Kelly and Michael" though. "I feel good," Lundqvist said. "It's hard to know, though, how a blood vessel heals. I just have to trust the doctors here. We constantly do check-ups. I'm skating on the ice. I try to stay in shape and as soon as they clear me for contact I want to be ready to play. But it's tough. I've been out a month." In the meantime, goaltender Cam Talbot has done a solid job of filling the void.
Mar 6 - 11:16 AM

Henrik Lundqvist (neck) has been on the ice working with Rangers goalie coach Benoit Allaire.

Lundqvist spent about 45 minutes on the ice Monday morning and was taking shots. He'll be re-evaluated next week and until then it remains unclear how much longer he'll be sidelined.
Feb 24 - 10:34 AM

Henrik Lundqvist (neck) should be re-evaluated next week.

If Lundqvist gets through this, he can ramp up his rehab and get closer to returning. Look for Lundqvist to be out at least three more weeks, barring any setback. He is 25-11-3 this season with a 2.25 GAA and a .922 save percentage.
Feb 22 - 8:16 AM

Henrik Lundqvist (neck) skated before practice on Thursday.

He did some cardio work on the ice, while wearing equipment and did some drills. Lundqvist was slated to miss a minimum of three weeks, but it will probably be longer than that.
