Henrik Lundqvist Net Worth $35 Million
Henrik Lundqvist grew up the small town of Are with his identical twin brother Joel, and although alpine skiing was the most popular sport in the area, the brothers decided to play ice hockey; their father frequently took them to see Frolunda games and their interest towards hockey grew stronger. After having a successful junior career in Frolunda, Lundqvist was shifted to the senior squad, for whom he made his debut in September 2000.
Although he started his professional career with a loss, Lundqvist then recorded his first win in the following game against IF Björklöven, allowing only one goal in the process. He quickly emerged as the country’s top goalie, and drew interest from the NHL in the early 2000’s. Lundqvist played for Frolunda in 180 games, won two titles and averaged 1.96 goals against with a .927 save percentage. His net worth was established.
The New York Rangers selected Lundqvist as the 205th pick overall in the 2005 NHL Draft, and he made his debut on 8 October against the New Jersey Devils and their legendary goaltender Martin Brodeur in a 3-2 overtime defeat. In his rookie season, Henrik recorded 30 wins and got into the NHL All-Rookie Team with the likes of Sidney Crosby, Dion Phaneuf, Alex Ovechkin, Andrej Meszaros, and Brad Boyes. He was also a finalist for the Vezina Trophy, the award for the best goaltender of the season.
His popularity among the Rangers fan base constantly grew, so Lundqvist earned the nickname “KingHenrik” in just his second year in the NHL. He made it to the playoffs with the team, and the final list for the Vezina Trophy once again, which secured him a new one-year deal with New York worth of $4.25 million. In 2008, Henrik became the highest-paid goalie in the league with a fresh contract worth $41.25 million over six years, which increased his net worth by a large margin, and the following year he was selected for his first All-Star game appearance.
He will be remembered as the first goaltender to win at least 30 games in his first 11 seasons, the record he set in 2016; he had finally won the prestigious Vezina Trophy 2012. In March 2013, Lundqvist surpassed the iconic Brodeur recording his 43rd shootout win, and the Rangers offered him a new seven-year massive deal worth of $59.5 million, increasing further his net worth. In 2015, Henrik led his team to the Eastern Conference finals, but they lost to the Tampa Bay Lightning in seven games.
Lundqvist has been a regular member of his national team since 2002, and he won World Championships in hockey in 2002, silver medals in 2003 and 2004 WC, gold in the Winter Olympics in Turin 2006 and silver in Sochi 2014.
Regarding his personal life, Henrik Lundqvist married Therese Andersson in 2011 and has two daughters with her. Henrik used to play guitar in a local Swedish rock band called Box Play. He owns a restaurant in Tribeca called “Tiny’s”.
Henrik and his wife founded the Henrik Lundqvist Foundation in 2014, a non-profit organisation which was established to help with health and education for children and families in need.
