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.

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.

Henrik Lundqvist (neck) is still not skating but has been working out on the stationary bike.

Lundqvist was injured a couple of weeks ago when hit in the neck by a puck. He played one more game before the Rangers shut him down. He is out at least another two-three weeks and it may be a lot longer than that. He had a 25-11-3 record with a 2.25 GAA and a .922 save percentage when he was put on the injured reserve list.

Henrik Lundqvist said he could have suffered a stroke if he would have continued playing with a vascular injury.

"If I kept playing I would have run a big risk of having a stroke" said Lundqvist. The Rangers' goaltender was hit in the throat by a shot on January 31st and the team announced that their star goaltender will miss about three weeks. He started his team's next game against Florida, but said he was suffering from headaches after that game. Cam Talbot will get the majority of the starts during King Henrik's absence.

The Rangers have announced that Henrik Lundqvist will miss three weeks because of a vascular injury.

"Henrik Lundqvist suffered a vascular injury on Saturday. We have been conferring with leading medical experts to ensure the best possible care," said the team in a statement. "Henrik will remain sidelined at least three weeks, until he is re-evaluated and we have completed the process of conferring with the medical experts." Lundqvist was hit in the throat by a shot on Jan. 31. He felt light-headed and was experiencing headaches in Monday's game against Florida, so he didn't play on Wednesday and he has been kept off the ice.

The New York Rangers have not confirmed reports that Henrik Lundqvist will be sidelined for at least a month.

"I have no updates at this time," coach Alain Vigneault said after Friday's practice. "Obviously, Hank is not coming on the trip and when the organization has an update for you, they'll share it with you." The team has only said that Lundqvist won't play on Saturday because of a neck injury. Lundqvist hasn't skated since Monday and there's evidence to suggest that this will be much longer than a day-to-day issue.

Henrik Lundqvist (neck) is expected to miss at least a month.

That's a substantial blow to the New York Rangers given how much he means to this organization, but not necessarily a crippling one if he is able to return prior to the end of the regular season. It certainly helps that the Rangers already have an eight-point cushion in the battle for a playoff spot. The other thing working for the Rangers is the fact that Cam Talbot has been a more than capable alternative to Lundqvist so far this season. Talbot will be under far more pressure now, but he's worth grabbing in fantasy leagues.
Feb 6 - 12:31 PM

Henrik Lundqvist is being listed as day-to-day with a neck injury.

The Rangers said that "further updates will be provided when more info is available." Lundqvist was hit in the throat by a shot on Saturday and this injury is related to that. Cam Talbot will handle New York's goaltending duties until Lundqvist returns.
Feb 4 - 4:36 PM

Henrik Lundqvist will not play Wednesday because of an upper-body injury.

Coach Alain Vigneault said the Rangers netminder is being checked out for something related to his throat, which was struck by a puck last Saturday. Lundqvist was able to play on Monday against Florida and he won both of those contests. Cam Talbot will start Wednesday's game versus Boston instead.
Feb 4 - 12:02 PM

Henrik Lundqvist will start on Wednesday against Boston.

Lundqvist will be going for his third straight victory. He has a 1.85 GAA and .937 save percentage in 33 career games against the Bruins.
Feb 4 - 5:28 AM

Any concern about the health of Henrik Lundqvist vanished Monday night when the Rangers' goalie kicked out 33 shots in a 6-3 victory over the visiting Florida Panthers.

Lundqvist took a shot to the throat Saturday night and there was a bit of speculation that he might not be able to play against the Panthers. But he did, and he was pretty effective, increasing his record to 25-11-3, despite all the Florida shots. Lundqvist's goals-against average is 2.25 and his save percentage is .922. He is, as it said on an earlier Rotoworld post, a fantasy beast.

Henrik Lundqvist will get the nod in net Monday night against the visiting Florida Panthers.

After taking a shot to the throat Saturday night, Lundqvist is feeling good enough to start Monday night versus the Panthers. This will be the King's 39th start of the season where he will look for his 25th win. In 29 career games versus Florida, Lundqvist has an impressive 1.76 goals-against-average and .938 save percentage, including five shutouts. His career numbers against the Panthers match his current numbers during his past 19 games this season: 15-4-0 record, 1.76 GAA, and a .939 save percentage. Needless to say, Lundqvist is a fantasy beast.

Henrik Lundqvist says he is dealing with some headaches and light-headedness after taking a shot to the throat in the Rangers’ 4-1 win Saturday night.

Lundqvist’s mask had been slightly lifted by Ryan McDonagh’s stick during a battle in front and the throat protector was not in the right spot when the shot was taken. Lundqvist took several minutes to collect himself, but remained in the game, making 31 saves. After the tilt, Lundqvist said he is not dealing with concussion symptoms. "Obviously it’s not fun when it happens," Lundqvist said. "I’m actually glad, it could’ve been a lot worse. I feel lucky."

Henrik Lundqvist made 31 saves in the Rangers’ 4-1 win over the Hurricanes on Saturday night.

Lundqvist and the Rangers seemed to avoid a major injury when he was hit in the throat with a shot that eluded his neck flap early in the second period. Lundqvist needed several moments to be looked at by the trainers and collect himself, but he would stay in the game. Afterwards, Lundqvist said he was a bit light-headed and had headaches, but there are no concussion worries. The Rangers had no business being in this one in the first half, but that’s why they pay King Henrik top dollar. He has a 2.23 goals-against average and .922 save percentage this season.
