Henrik Lundqvist spent 15 years as a New York Ranger, winning 456 games and a Vezina Trophy in 2012.
But after getting bought out by the Rags earlier this month, the 38-year-old goaltender signed a one-year, $1.5 million contract with the Washington Capitals, hoping to have a Ray Bourque moment of his own.
Recently, Lundqvist visited Washington DC for the first time with his family. Today, he rocked a Capitals jersey for the first time.
“Trust the process,” wrote Lundqvist online.
Lundqvist rocks a mostly white bucket with a white glove, white blocker, and white pads. Only his red, white, and blue colored stick is the only reminder of his days in New York.
Rangers fans did not handle Lundqvist’s new video well.

The King will likely end up being the backup goaltender in Washington, supporting and mentoring second-year goaltender Ilya Samsonov who is recovering from an ATV accident he suffered in the spring.
