Henrik Lundqvist Has Said Goodbye To His Teammates In New York

Henrik Lundqvist has been the King of New York City since he was drafted 205th overall in the 7th round of the 2000 NHL entry draft. King Henrik has reigned for two decades, but the Rangers have two other elite level goaltenders that need to develop and play more minutes. The writing has been on the wall for some time, and he has reportedly said his goodbyes as his reign in New York is over.
New York Rangers defenseman Libor Hajek revealed in an interview with a Czech news outlet that Lundqvist has said goodbye to his friends and teammates in New York.
"After the last match with Carolina, Lundqvist said goodbye, saying it was his last match. He said he didn't know what would happen to him if the Rangers bought him out or went somewhere else."
Lundqvist has one year left on his 7 year deal worth $8.5 million per year. Trading him will be near impossible with that cap hit, but he may be able to play elsewhere if the remainder of his contract is bought out.

Will he continue to play? Will he retire? Nobody knows.
