There were rumblings that Henrik Lundqvist might be added to the growing list of players bowing out of the 2016 World Cup of Hockey, but apparently that’s not true.
ESPN’s Joe McDonald reports that Lundqvist did not suffer an injury playing golf. He’s expected to practice on Monday and it sounds like he’s good to go for Sweden.
Now, if there are any further developments, PHT will pass along word. At the moment, it sounds like a dodged bullet for Sweden, Lundqvist, the New York Rangers and fans of high-level goaltending.
Sorry, Erik Johnson, it looks like you’re still pretty lonely when it comes to golf injury jokes.
