Henrik Lundqvist is recovered from the knee injury he suffered during the 2017 World Hockey Championship.
Lundqvist helped lead Sweden to a gold-medal victory despite suffering a Grade 1 MCL sprain in his left knee during the semifinal round. "I've been skating a few times now and I feel good," Lundqvist said. "Obviously, I have some work ahead of me, but it's a similar feeling. ... When you step on the ice, that's the time for me when I really ramp it up and increase the workload, and I enjoy that." The Rangers netminder added that his off-season training wasn't disrupted by the injury and he is getting ready for training camp. Lundqvist is looking to be more consistent in 2017-18 after he felt the lows last year "were a little too low." Aug 10 - 5:24 PM

Henrik Lundqvist suffered a knee injury at the World Hockey Championship.

Lundqvist and Team Sweden won the gold medal at this year's tournament. Lundqvist confirmed the news to a newspaper in Sweden. He's expected to be on the shelf for anywhere between four and six weeks. That still gives him plenty of time to get healthy before the start of the regular season.

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.

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.
