For a guy that just had his heart operated on nearly a month ago, Henrik Lundqvist looked amazing in his first time back on the ice since the surgery. It’s unclear whether he is trying to prepare himself to get back with the Washington Capitals or if this is just him getting some doctor ordered exercise to get his heart going. Either way, it’s great to see.

This off season Lundqvist signed a one year deal with the Washington Capitals and had every intention of suiting up for his new team in what would be his “last ride” so to speak, in an attempt to finally win a Stanley Cup.
It was a surprise to everyone including Henrik when he announced he would have to step away from the game without having laced them up for the Capitals once due to his heart condition that required him to go under the knife for open heart surgery.
Although it is great to see the King back on the ice, if he even does have plans to return to the NHL it will likely not be for a few months or perhaps not till next season.
