Time for more hockey hotties. This time, let’s focus on New York Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist. He’s in the news these days because of a vascular injury sustained during a recent match with the Carolina Hurricanes. Apparently, this injury is so bad it will sideline the hockey star for the next three weeks.
From the statement released by the NY Rangers HQ:
Henrik Lundqvist suffered a vascular injury on Saturday. We have been conferring with leading medical experts to ensure the best possible care. Henrik will remain sidelined at least three weeks, until he is revaluated and we have completed the process of conferring with the medical experts.
That’s kinda bad, no? Let’s hope he recovers well and that he come backs with a bang!
Henrik Lundqvist Shirtless Photos. Anyhoo, because we are all about shirtlessness here at Famewatcher, here are some shirtless photos of the 32-year-old hockey hunk.
In 2005, he posed shirtless for a charity calendar. What a gorgeous guy!
In 2014, he signed on as a celebrity spokesmodel for a Swedish apparel brand called Bread and Boxers. Here’s a shirtless Henrik during a photoshoot for the brand:
And here’s the Bread and Boxers ad as displayed in a store:
He’s very sexy and very manly, no? [Want more Swedish mean’s underwear? Go check out this Bjorn Borg underwear line.]
What prompted the multi-awarded Swedish hockey star to sign on with Bread & Boxers? Here’s what he told Women’s Wear Daily:
I always wanted to be involved in building a brand, but the right opportunity hadn’t presented itself until now. The line is beautiful and comfortable — essential, really — which is what attracted me to Bread & Boxers. I wore the products and loved them. It’s that simple. [It’s] styled with a clean, Swedish aesthetic, so the pieces are perfect for me whether I’m traveling city-to-city for hockey, or just enjoying my time in New York City. Sport and style are both important aspects of my lifestyle.
We tried looking for Henrik modeling Bread & Boxers underwear but, sadly, we didn’t find any. But here are some male models to show us what the brand’s products are like.
Sleep well, Mr. Model, Bread & Boxers have got you covered.
Here’s Henrik looking cool in his Bread & Boxers tees and jeans.
Want to know more about Henrik’s fashion style and choices? Here’s what he told the Mr. Porter Style Council back in 2012. It is important to note that this was before Henrik discovered the awesomeness of Bread & Boxers.
