Lundqvist secured a one-year, $1.5 million contract with Washington on Friday, Pierre LeBrun of TSN reports.

Lundqvist will don another sweater for the first time in his 15-year NHL career. With 459 career wins, King Henrik currently sits second among active goalies behind only Vegas' Marc-Andre Fleury. With the Caps, Lundqvist can at best hope to split time with Ilya Samsonov, who had an excellent debut season in 2019-20. However, if the youngster struggles, Lundqvist figures to immediately jump into a starting role.
