Henrik Lundqvist Covers Page Six Magazine
New York Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist has dashing sartorial sense and sex appeal, so he’s already caught the eyes of NYC’s fashionistas. Here’s what he had to say in the latest issue of Page Six Magazine:
On doing a shirtless photo shoot if he was offered a David Beckham-esque deal of $5 million: “I don’t have a problem showing my body, but I have more respect for my girlfriend [fellow Swede, Therese Andersson] than to do that. [But if I was offered $5 million] yeah, then we could start talking. Absolutely.”
On his former teammate and notorious NHL antagonist Sean Avery: “Sean’s one of a kind. When Page Six Magazine put me on its Top 25 Best Dressed list [September 2008] with the caption “Sean who?” I gave it to my brother [fraternal twin, Joel, a center for the Dallas Stars, Sean’s former team] to put in Sean’s stall in the locker room. Sean didn’t think it was very funny.”
On his fashion sense and Dior, Hugo Boss, and Tiger of Sweden wardrobe: “[The New York Rangers all] wear a suit every time we travel. So it’s pretty much five days a week in a suit. There’s a lot of space in my closet dedicated to that. And I never wear T-shirts! I don’t want to wear something that’s not me.”
On his game time intensity: “Winning is everything to me, so when it comes to game day, I don’t like to talk much. I get angry easily. If I have a bad game, people stay away.”
On his plans for 2009: “I’m always looking to see what’s next. I never get satisfied. Otherwise, you stop getting better. My focus is to go all the way [to the Stanley Cup] this year.”
