So much for the Cam Talbot “controversy” on Broadway.
After months of will-he-or-won’t he speculation, goaltender Henrik Lundqvist has signed a seven-year, $59.5-million extension with the New York Rangers. The deal carries an $8.5-million cap hit and makes him the NHL’s highest-paid goaltender. Actually, as per capgeek.com, Lundqvist will be the league’s fifth-priciest player next season, behind only Alex Ovechkin, Evgeni Malkin, Sidney Crosby and Corey Perry, a.k.a. four Hart Trophy winners.
