The Rangers have announced that Henrik Lundqvist’s #30 will be retired on January 28th when the Rangers host the Minnesota Wild.
James Dolan said in a statement, “Over the franchise’s history, only 11 Rangers players have earned the honor of having their numbers raised to the Garden rafters, where they forever serve as inspiration for others to follow. For 15 seasons, Henrik Lundqvist embodied everything the Rangers organization stands for – excellence, commitment, pride, and leadership. It is only fitting that his No. 30 will now join the legends who have come before him.”
Chris Drury said in a statement, “It was an honor to play with Henrik for four seasons and watch his career evolve as I’ve moved through the organization. Having his No. 30 etched in history forever is so well-deserved for a man who has done so much for the city of New York, on and off the ice. It will be a special moment for the entire organization.”
