The hockey world went into complete shock when Henrik Lundqvist made it known he wouldn't be suiting up for the Washington Capitals this season. The long-time New York Ranger made his way to Washington via free-agency and unfortunately, health concerns pushed back his debut.

Lundqvist has been very open and honest about his newfound heart condition, in this video:

The love of course poured in as Lundqvist is one of the 'good-guys' of the NHL and is beloved by teammates, fans and media alike.
