GREENBURGH, N.Y. (AP) Just two days after surprisingly watching from the bench for a second straight game, No. 1 goalie Henrik Lundqvist agreed to a long-term contract extension with the New York Rangers on Wednesday.
Lundqvist, in the final season of a six-year, $41.25 million deal, agreed to a seven-year contract reportedly worth $59.5 million. His salary-cap charge would rise from $6.875 million to $8.5 million and make him the NHL's highest-paid goalie.
More importantly, it should keep him starring on Broadway for the rest of his career.
