Washington Capitals

NHL CapHit: $1,500,000 Puckpedia Profile

The Capitals have signed Henrik Lundqvist to a one-year contract worth $1.5 million.

After a 15-year Hall of Fame career in New York, Lundqvist signs a one-year contract with Washington to split time with 23-year-old Ilya Samsonov. Since posting a .920 SV% in 2016, Lundqvist has gone 85-81-24 with a 2.96 GAA and .910 SV%. For Lundqvist to have better numbers in 2021, the Capitals will need to be better defensively than they were under Todd Reirden.

The Rangers have bought out the final year of Henrik Lundqvist's contract.

Lundqvist had one-year left with an $8.5 million cap-hit and the buy-out will cost the Rangers $5.5M in 2021 and $1.5M in 2022. The future Hall of Famer spent 15 years with the Rangers, going 459-310-96 with a 2.43 GAA, .918 SV% and 64 shutouts. The 2011-12 Vezina Trophy winner was 10-12-3 with a 3.16 GAA and .905 SV% in 2020 and will likely land with a goalie-needy team to wrap up his career.

Lundqvist gave up a goal on the first shot that he faced in Game 1 but settled in, stopping 34 of 37 shots in a 3-2 loss. He was a surprise starter with Igor Shesterkin deemed "unfit to play" and that will be the case again in Game 2. Lundqvist has now lost his last three playoff starts dating back to 2017, giving up 11 goals on 99 shots (.889 SV%).

Many were expecting to see Igor Shesterkin in Game 1 but he was deemed "unfit to play" so the veteran Lundqvist will get Game 1 vs. the Hurricanes.

In his last playoff appearance (2017), King Henri was 6-6 while posting a 2.25 GAA and .927 SV% in 12 games.
