Who Said It?

I can’t even remember the last time I’ve been away from hockey as long as I have been now. It feels so strange. Everything is off. Nothing is the way it’s supposed to be. It’s hard to imagine that it’s almost Christmas but the season hasn’t even started yet.

I miss it so much. I miss the game. I miss the excitement. I miss the challenge of pushing myself every day. I feed off competing. I feed off the energy.

I’ve tried to be positive. I have to admit that I never thought we would be out this long. I’ve never gone through anything like this before. The first couple of weeks were weird but then when I realized we might be out for a long time, I started to freak out a little bit. It’s hard to explain.

You feed off the game. It’s your life. I never imagined it would be this difficult for me not to play and how much I would miss it. I guess you take it for granted that you will always play.

I was close.  I guessed Jimmy Howard.

The big takeaway from that fluff piece is…’ The King?’  That’s Henrik Lundqvist’s nickname?

Well, at least I have another reason to hate the Rangers.

The King.

HockeyinHD—I’m pretty sure people have been calling him “King Henrik” for a long time now.  Seems funny to see it as just “The King,” but I’m sure that’s what it’s referring to (and of course the nickname is a reference to all the King Henrys throughout history—and in Sweden they have a king—so I don’t mind).
