  • Rangers' Nils Lundkvist: Out Sunday

    Lundkvist (illness) will not suit up Sunday against Nashville, Dan Rosen of NHL.com reports.

    Lundkvist was a late scratch Sunday and will be replaced by Libor Hajek. The 21-year-old has four points through 21 games as a rookie this season. He'll be questionable ahead of Tuesday's tilt with Colorado.

  • Rangers' Nils Lundkvist: Lights lamp for first time

    Lundkvist scored a power-play goal on four shots in Wednesday's 7-3 loss to the Avalanche.

    Lundkvist tallied his first NHL goal at 18:15 of the first period, giving the Rangers a brief 2-1 lead. The 21-year-old is up to four points in 20 games this year. He's added 24 shots, 15 blocked shots and a plus-1 rating, but he'll likely continue to see a sheltered role on the third pairing as he adjusts to the pace of the NHL.

  • Rangers' Nils Lundkvist: Gets first career power-play point

    Lundkvist dished out a power-play assist in Wednesday's 4-1 win over the Flyers.

    Lundkvist helped set up Jacob Trouba's point blast, as New York's second power-play unit opened the scoring just 3:41 into the contest. The Swedish rookie is seeing sheltered minutes on the third pairing and skated only 13 minutes in this one, but Lundkvist posted double-digit goal totals in each of his last two seasons in the Swedish Hockey League before making his way stateside. Lundkvist should eventually add more offense to his game, but the 21-year-old is currently focused on learning the ropes in the NHL, which explains his meager three points through 16 games.

  • Rangers' Nils Lundkvist: Gathers assist Friday

    Lundkvist picked up an assist and went plus-2 in Friday's 6-5 overtime loss to the Oilers.

    Lundkvist set up Filip Chytil for the opening goal Friday. The 21-year-old Lundkvist hasn't secured an everyday role in the lineup yet, playing in eight of the Rangers' 11 contests. He's collected assists in each of his last two games, adding six shots on net, seven blocked shots and an even plus-minus rating while seeing sheltered minutes on the third pairing.

  • Rangers' Nils Lundkvist: Scratched after getting first point

    Lundkvist was a healthy scratch for Sunday's 3-1 win over the Kraken.

    Coach Gerard Gallant said he wanted to get Lundkvist some rest as the Rangers began their west coast road trip, so Jarred Tinordi filled in for the second time this season. The 21-year-old rookie just picked up his first NHL point in his seventh appearance, and Lundkvist's production in Sweden before coming stateside suggests he has a high offensive ceiling, though he may not realize it this year with the Rangers content to bring Lundkvist along slowly. Expect him to be back in the lineup Tuesday in Vancouver.

  • Rangers' Nils Lundkvist: Secures entry-level contract

    Lundkvist inked a three-year, entry-level deal with the Rangers on Thursday.

    Lundkvist has spent the past four seasons playing for Swedish club Lulea HF, for which he tallied 14 goals and 18 assists in 52 games this year. Selected by the organization with the 28th overall pick in the 2018 NHL Draft, the 20-year-old blueliner could make his way to North America next year, though he'll likely start out with AHL Hartford before getting a chance to break into the NHL.

  • Rangers' Nils Lundkvist: Left off training camp roster

    Lundkvist isn't participating in Rangers training camp.

    Lundkvist signed a one-year extension with his SHL club in June and was never going to be an option for the Blue Shirts to begin 2020-21, so it isn't exactly surprising that he was left off the team's training camp roster. The 2018 first-round pick has been fantastic for Lulea HF in Sweden this year, racking up seven goals and 17 points while posting a plus-3 rating in 27 contests. He'll be in the running for a spot on the Rangers' roster in 2021-22 and could even join the team down the stretch this year after his SHL campaign wraps up in March.

  • Rangers' Nils Lundkvist: Sets new U-20 SHL scoring record

    Lundkvist recently became the first under-20 defenseman in Swedish Hockey League history to tally 25 or more points in a single season.

    Lundkvist has posted six goals and 25 points in 36 games for Lulea this season. Viewed as a fringe first-round prospect when the Rangers selected him No. 28 overall in 2018, Lundkvist's offensive game has grown by leaps and bounds over the past year-plus worth of action. Lundkvist is yet to sign his entry-level deal with New York, but that formality should be completed at some point this coming spring. Expect Lundkvist to challenge for a roster spot with the Rangers in the fall of 2020.

  • Rangers' Nils Lundkvist: Off to hot start

    Lundkvist (lower body) has registered three assists in his first four games of the year with Lulea HF.

    Lundkvist picked up a lower-body injury during the Rangers' summer prospect tournament, but that doesn't appear to have slowed him down. Considering the 19-year-old notched just 10 points in 41 games last year, it seems that he may have begun developing his offensive game, which will only improve his chances of making the move to North America next year.

  • Rangers' Nils Lundkvist: Injured in summer tournament

    Lundkvist suffered a lower-body injury in Sweden's 2019 World Junior Summer Showcase game against the United States on Saturday, Corey Pronman of The Athletic reports.

    There was no immediate word on the severity of the injury. Even if the issue is deemed to be minor, Lundkvist will almost certainly be shut down for the remainder of the brief summer tournament. The 28th overall selection in the 2018 draft, Lundkvist will return to his native Sweden to play for Lulea this season. There's a chance he could cross the pond in the spring of 2020.
