Lundqvist talking to Swedish tabloid, Aftonbladet on why he will not be joining team Sweden at the I.I.H.F. World Championship in Germany next month
“I’ve been doing physical therapy for a week but the knee doesn’t get any better, so I have to say no. It doesn’t feel OK to go. It’s both physically and mentally demanding to play in the Worlds when you are not 100%.”
Back in 2008 their were rumors of Lundqvist taking weekly cortisone shots in his knees.
...not sure the legitimacy of this quote as a Swedish tabloid also broke the cortisone shot rumor that Steve Zipay debunked. Either way it is a bit concerning.
...maybe the Rangers do need to draft at goalie at #10 in June.
