Heart inflammation ends Henrik Lundqvist’s comeback bid for this year
Henrik Lundqvist can’t catch a break, as inflammation in his heart has ended his comeback bid for this season.
Last week’s checkup showed some inflammation around the heart that now requires a few months more of rest and steady recovery.
While it’s not what I hoped for, I know this is all part of the process of getting back to 100%.

Lundqvist, after being bought out by the Rangers, Lundqvist signed with the Caps, but never got to play due to a heart condition. He was on the ice as late as February, but obviously his health matters more.
Hopefully Lundqvist gets to 100% soon and is able to return to the ice. He has a lot of hockey left in him, and I think we’d all like to see him recovered and playing again.
