Rangers to retire Henrik Lundqvist’s #30 this season
The Rangers are wasting no time honoring the best goaltender in Rangers history. Lundqvist’s #30 will be raised to the rafters this season.

The Friday January 28th game, when Minnesota comes to New York, is the likely option here. It’s not too early or too late in the season. It’s also when Lundqvist’s best friend Mats Zuccarello will be in town. That’s the best time to do it, and I don’t think many would disagree.
