Mr. 300

Arguably one of the best goaltenders of his time, Henrik Lundqvist etches in his 300th win today against the Detroit Red Wings. 

Lundqvist was drafted 205th overall by the New York Rangers back in the 2000 entry draft. Hank would continue to play in Sweden for Vastra Frolunda HC Goteborg until the 2005-06 season when he would make his rookie debut with the Rangers. His rookie year, Hank recorded a total of 30 wins, a save percentage of .922, two shutouts, and a goals against average of 2.24. Pretty spectacular for a 23 year old rookie. Hank's talent would prove enough to make it to the Swedish Olympic hockey team in 2006 where he would help the Swedes win gold. He was also a huge factor in the Swedish silver medal in Sochi.


Hank proves that he is the King of New York essentially every season, especially with the numbers he puts up; averaging 33 wins. For this season alone, Hank is ranked third in the league for shutouts, 20, and ninth in goals against at 117. If this isn't enough, he also has an NHL career total save percentage of .920 and a goals against average of 2.27. If he is able to keep these numbers up and remain the talented goalie that he is, there is really no question he will be inducted to the Hockey Hall of Fame when the time comes.
