Because I swore to not write one post on the NHL lockout last month, hockey has pretty much been invisible on this blog. That is going to change today, because I could not help but pass along these exquisite images of New York Rangers’ Henrik Lundqvist, Brad Richards, Brian Boyle, and restricted free agent Michael Del Zotto, as they recently posed for Esquire during their unfortunate elongated period of free time this fall. The images were just released today, so I thank DKC for sending them over to me. Enjoy!
I don’t know about you, but I would much rather see Henrik Lundqvist in front of a camera than a net during the lockout, in order to stay healthy and relaxed in order to get ready for the season, if that season ever comes. There’s just something about goalies playing in other leagues during work stoppages that scares me. Anyway, it looks like they’re having fun, as well as sticking around New York City during their time off, which makes for good team bonding.
