Washington Capitals’ Henrik Lundqvist won’t play for upcoming NHL season due to heart condition

“It’s still very hard for me to process all of this,” Lundqvist said in a video posted on social media by the Capitals. “And kind of shocking, to be honest.”
Calling it “a pretty tough and emotional day,” the longtime New York Rangers goaltender, who joined the Capitals this offseason, said he has been undergoing various tests on his heart “for several weeks.”
“After lots of discussions with doctors around the country, and finally receiving the last results earlier this week, I unfortunately won’t be able to join the team this year,” Lundqvist said.
Lundqvist, 38, expressed gratitude toward the Capitals in another post on Twitter, saying, “I will take the next few weeks to be with my family and I’ll be back to share the next steps.”
This offseason, Lundqvist consented to a one-year manage the Capitals worth $1.5 million following a 15-year run with the Rangers. He turned into an unhindered free specialist in a packed field of goaltenders.

“While we are all saddened as hockey fans that we will not be able to watch Henrik tend goal for the Capitals this season,” Bettman said, “we are also thankful that he will be getting the necessary medical care.”
The Rangers additionally offered their help via web-based media.
“We have no doubt that Henrik Lundqvist will face this challenge with the same fierce determination and grace that made him one of the greatest goaltenders to ever play the game of hockey, and an inspiration to all of us,” the team’s statement said. “He and his family are in our thoughts during this difficult time. He will always be a part of the New York Rangers family.”
Lundqvist is a five-time finalist for the Vezina Trophy, winning the honor for the NHL’s top goaltender in 2011-12.
He has showed up in 887 NHL normal season games, in addition to 130 in the end of the season games, and he approached a title in 2014, driving the Rangers to the Cup Final. He lost postseason arrangement to the Capitals in 2009 and 2011, at that point killed them in 2012, 2013 and 2015.
He hadn’t partook in the end of the season games with New York since 2017 until two games in the passing round of the extended, 24-group end of the season games this previous summer.
“The risk of playing without remedying my condition is too high,” Lundqvist wrote on Twitter, “so I will spend the coming months figuring out the best course of action.”
Greg Chappell encourages Australia to not view the India trip as a “sideshow” because “there is red-hot fury and embarrassment among our fans”
According to former Australia captain Greg Chappell, the team’s first two Test losses in India have left the nation’s supporters furious, perplexed, and ashamed.
After falling behind 2-0 in their four-match Test series against India, Australia has now lost the Border-Gavaskar Trophy four times in a row. Australia lost both games in the span of three days, with India mercilessly exposing Australia’s hitters’ deficiencies against spin bowling. Although the second day of the second Test was a competitive match, the Australian batters meekly gave up in the third, and former captain Greg Chappell claims that the performance has disappointed the home crowd.
According to Chappell, Australian cricket as a whole has to start ranking India trips on par with or even higher than the Ashes. The fact that our squad has displayed such little grit thus far in the series has enraged the Australian public, and rightfully so. The sight of a batsman being out on the first ball while doing the reverse sweep and acting like this series is not important for the future pisses off. Australian cricket needs to understand that taking on India is not a sideshow but rather the main event, equal to or perhaps greater than The Ashes, he said.
Australia was bowled for 177 and 91 in its two innings, contributing to India’s 400-run victory in the first Test, which it lost by an innings and 132 runs. In the first two days of the second Test, they performed well, reaching 263 runs in the first innings and nearly gaining a commanding lead before being bowled for 113 runs on Day 3. India secured a 6-0 victory and a commanding 2-0 lead as a result. Since 2015, Australia has not been able to defeat India in a Test series, either at home or abroad.
Highlights from the England vs. South Africa Women’s T20 World Cup 2023 semifinal: SA won the championship by 6 runs over ENG
Highlights from the England vs. South Africa Women’s T20 World Cup 2023 semifinal: Up until South Africa rallied and advanced to the championship game’s final three overs of the innings, England was coasting along in the chase.
Highlights from the England vs. South Africa Women’s T20 World Cup 2023 semifinal: After holding South Africa to 164/4, England was coasting when the final three overs of their innings changed the course of the match. At the end of the 16th over, England had scored 131 runs, and even though South Africa claimed the important wicket of Nat Sciver-Brunt in the 17th, England appeared to be able to continue scoring at the same pace. Ayabonga Khaka, collecting three wickets, bowled what might be remembered as the game-changing over of the tournament.
The victory was subsequently secured by Shabnim Ismail’s dismissal of England captain Heather Knight in the final over. Previously, South Africa’s powerplay inning got off to a poor start, but the openers picked up the pace and put up a stout defence. Ending with a half-century, Laura Wolvaardt’s opening partnership with Tazmin Brits produced 96 runs. With Brits’ second consecutive half-century, who had previously failed to reach 140 in this competition, South Africa grabbed control and was poised to surpass 170.
Following a sensational 19th over from Sophie Ecclestone in which she claimed two wickets, South Africa reached 164/4 after the 20th over went for 18. For the first time ever, South Africa has advanced to the T20 World Cup final, where they will take on the formidable Australia on Sunday.
The change in African soccer
African footballers are used to playing on the world’s football fields with only a handful of elite players who play in the best European leagues. What about the other lesser known players? They are trying to break through by taking side roads.
the results obtained by Morocco will have repercussions and will allow Africa to reap important gains in line with its footballing power.
I think that every African country should take an example from Morocco in the last world cup we saw Morocco go very far in the Competition.
Today we are going to speak mainly about Congo I think that they must begin by investing in the youth infrastructure construction of center there is so much talent in this country it is a pity that there is only one stadium in the capital of Kinshasa as a sports adviser all its young people have a dream is to come to play in Europe but before extinguishing this dream I think that the base must be solid a competition of age must be created for the young people so that it can evolve well from this moment there we will be able to consider to make the necessary (sports adviser, player’s agent) to go and see his young players in order to find the best talents to pass the next step
