The Other Lundqvist

from the Star-Telegram,
Rookie center Joel Lundqvist should find his way onto the Stars' roster at some point. But whether Lundqvist is able to win a job in training camp or during the season, he'd love to do it by Dec. 14. That's the date when Dallas hosts the New York Rangers and goalie Henrik Lundqvist, Joel's twin brother. Henrik, a phenomenal rookie last season, also led Sweden to the Olympic gold medal this year and became a media sensation in New York. By contrast, Joel is relatively unknown outside of his native country, where he spent the past six seasons with Frölunda of the Swedish Elite League. Henrik is among People magazine's "100 Most Beautiful People." Joel, his identical twin, is nowhere to be found in the issue.
