Henrik Lundqvist says inflammation around his heart has ended his comeback bid with the Capitals this season
Henrik Lundqvist announced the results from a recent doctor’s appointment on Sunday.
Lundqvist revealed that his comeback bid this season with the Capitals is effectively over after doctors found inflammation around his heart. Lundqvist says his “stretch goal” was to rejoin the team at the end of the season. While he feels good, he said his heart “isn’t quite ready.”
The future Hall of Famer says he needs “a few months more of rest and steady recovery” to regain his full health.
