THE KING IS BACK!!
NHL superstar Henrik Lundqvist has made his return to the ice … less than 2 MONTHS after undergoing a serious open-heart surgery.
As we previously reported, the 38-year-old Washington Capitals goalie opted out of the upcoming NHL season last month … citing an existing heart condition that would prevent him from playing.
Lundqvist underwent a 5-hour procedure — an aortic valve, aortic root, and ascending aortic replacement — and has been on the road to recovery ever since.
Now, the future Hall of Famer has resumed his position between the pipes … and judging by the vid he posted Tuesday morning, the dude looks GREAT!!
“The best type of workday!” Lundqvist captioned the vid as he makes a quick save.
It’s a huge step in the right direction for Lundqvist, who said Tuesday also marked the first time he was allowed to drive since the surgery.
Keep it up, King!!
