King Henrik Lundqvist did a Q&A with a meet and greet at iPlay America in Freehold , NJ this past December. This sold out event was nothing short of incredible! As Henrik made his way to center stage around 3:30 pm all that could be seen was a sea of red, white, and blue Rangers jerseys and all that was heard was “HENRIK, HENRIK, HENRIK”!
Henrik was very humble and answered questions from the audience for over an hour. Discussing everything from pregame routine, how to move on from bad losses, advice for upcoming goaltenders, most memorable career achievements/moments, and my favorite question and answer of the day was “If you had a guaranteed chance at the cup with a different team would you leave the New York Rangers to get that cup before you retired?” You can hear the entire crowd roar “OHHHHHHHHH”! Without hesitation Hank answered, “The commitment I made a few years ago to this organization and the commitment they made to me, I feel this is the place I want to play my entire career”. Needless to say, the crowd erupted in cheers and applause.
After the Q&A hundreds of fans lined up for the meet and greet where they got a professional signed picture of themselves with the future Hall of Famer Henrik Lundqvist.
This event was extremely well organized and we would like to thank iPlay America for allowing us to be part of it!
Here are some pictures we snapped that day!
