Lundqvist’s emotional display moves more than just Rangers fans

USA Today

Following yesterday’s loss to the Capitals, Henrik Lundqvist showed the world that hockey players are more than just a bunch of people wearing the same clothes every night. When asked by MSG reporter John Giannone about the trade that sent his longtime teammate and close friend Mats Zuccarello to Dallas, King Henrik couldn’t get the words out of his mouth.

This was a rare moment in the sports world – seeing a superstar athlete struggling to fight back tears after a teammate is traded. Lundqvist’s actions were noticed by many, both in the sports world and elsewhere.
