Henrik Lundqvist wants his career to end just like Ray Bourque’s did: ‘I want to see myself lift that Cup and I want to do it in Washington’
Henrik Lundqvist listed a variety of reasons for signing with the Washington Capitals on Friday after spending the first 15 years of his career with the New York Rangers.
“I think for a few weeks now, I’ve been doing my homework on different scenarios and options for me,” Lundqvist said. “I have to say, the Capitals checked every box when it comes to a team that understands winning, a great coaching staff, and (giving me) an opportunity to play some games.
“Those were the main factors. Starting with a chance to win. At this point of my career that’s the most important thing.”
Lundqvist is hoping history repeats itself and he can end his career just like Hockey Hall of Famer Ray Bourque did 19 years ago.
