King Henrik has found his new home.
Henrik Lundqvist signed a $ 1.5 million one-year deal with the Washington Capitals when the free agent window opened on Friday.
Lundqvist would still make $ 4.5 million for the upcoming season, $ 3 million as part of his buyout with the New York Rangers.
The 38-year-old spent the first 15 seasons of his career with the Rangers, receiving five All-Star selections and the Vezina Trophy in 2012. New York announced it would buy out Lundqvist's contract on September 30th.
The reigning starter of Capitals, Braden Holtby, is an unreserved free agent, so Lundqvist will almost certainly be working with Ilya Samsonov in 2020-21.
Lundqvist set a 10-12-3 record last season with a saving of 0.905 percent, a GAA of 3.16 and a GSAA of -4.16 (goals saved above average).
