Rangers Roundup: Lundkvist on NY, Zibanejad on going home, and Henrik’s brother not happy on his treatment

Plenty of news coming out of Sweden this morning directly from the mouths of people you want to hear from. Let’s dive right in.

Nils Lundkvist

In a recent Swedish interview, Nils was asked about playing in New York next season. He answered plainly, “Nothing is definite. But I’m sure to give it a try, and then we’ll see what happens.” Nils then added, “Everyone who plays hockey has a dream to play over there, that’s mine too.“

Lundkvist who had a record breaking U20 season in the SHL told Forever Blueshirts the same in an interview done on February 12th.

Mika on going home

Since the league announced the postponement, Mika has been living with his girlfriend and her mom at his apartment in NYC. “We have mostly sat in the apartment, played Yatzy and video games and taken it easy,” he told Swedish paper Sportsbladet. When explaining the decision to return home he said, “It feels unreal everything. You have never been in such a situation before. But I look forward to coming to Sweden, you want to be with your family this time.“

Henrik Lundqvist undecided

In the same article from SportBladet, Henrik via text said he wasn’t sure what he and his family would do at this time about returning to Sweden. However, the story from Johan Rylander speaking with Hank’s twin brother Joel who is very unhappy with how his brother is being treated.

Obviously, I suffered with him. Just considering his career in Rangers, how he has delivered over the years – even last year. It is clear that I would have liked to have seen a different arrangement – and that the Rangers had treated him better! That’s just how it is. I think they have done it very strange. I have suffered with him, that’s a fact.
