It’s not everyday that a hockey player lands a long feature in Esquire Magazine, but Swedish hair model Henrik Lundqvist is a different breed. In the article, we learn that The King describes his look as clean, but with an edge. Lundqvist also talks about why good clothes can be a gateway drug into the world of watches.
The part I want to point you to is where the Rangers goaltender is asked who is the toughest player he’s ever faced. His answer: Alex Ovechkin.
There are a bunch of players in the league that stand out. I think [Alex] Ovechkin is one of the best goal scorers of all time, not only right now. If you look what he does—if someone was able to do that 20 years ago, I think they would have a lot more goals. It’s very impressive to see someone who plays like him score that many goals. He’s just very determined when it comes to scoring chances and trying to get the puck in the net.
It makes sense. Ovechkin currently has a 8-game goal scoring streak against the Rangers. He literally cannot stop scoring against them. On top of that, there was this precious moment in last year’s playoffs.
“All series, baby,” Ovechkin warns Lundqvist. “All series.”
The Caps lost the series, but Ovechkin kept his promise: he never stopped scoring.
Thanks to @7ML for the heads up.
