Report: Henrik Lundqvist did not suffer a golf-related injury

New York Rangers v Pittsburgh Penguins - Game Five

PITTSBURGH, PA - APRIL 23: Henrik Lundqvist #30 of the New York Rangers shakes hands with Ian Cole #28 of the Pittsburgh Penguins after being eliminated in Game Five of the Eastern Conference First Round during the 2016 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs at Consol Energy Center on April 23, 2016 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

There were rumblings that Henrik Lundqvist might be added to the growing list of players bowing out of the 2016 World Cup of Hockey, but apparently that’s not true.

ESPN’s Joe McDonald reports that Lundqvist did not suffer an injury playing golf. He’s expected to practice on Monday and it sounds like he’s good to go for Sweden.

Now, if there are any further developments, PHT will pass along word. At the moment, it sounds like a dodged bullet for Sweden, Lundqvist, the New York Rangers and fans of high-level goaltending.

Sorry, Erik Johnson, it looks like you’re still pretty lonely when it comes to golf injury jokes.
