UPDATED: Lundqvist calls it a career, retires as a Maple Leaf

After a 50-game, 26-win season, 'The King' decides to hang up his skates at 39 years young - and seems poised for a modeling career.



Henrik Lundqvist announced his retirement from BEARD Hockey on Monday, bringing a 16-year career to a close in the city where he may end up being enshrined down the road.


The retirement is of course pending the use of a retirement save, which Maple Leafs GM Sean Hanley may use next month to retain Lundqvist's services for one additional season.


The Toronto Maple Leafs, who acquired Lundqvist in March from Seattle, played the 39-year old goaltender often over the second half of the 2020-21 season. He went 20-11-2 to bring the Leafs into a tie for a playoff spot at the end of the season, which went to Boston on a tiebreaker.


Overall, Lundqvist finishes his BEARD Hockey career with 50 games, a 26-19-5 record, a .902 save percentage, and a 3.02 goals-against average.


"I greatly appreciate the opportunity given to be by Toronto and the league," said Lundqvist, who may or may not immediately be signing a modeling contract this summer. "It was a great run and we came up just short, but for me, it's time to ride on."
