Rangers To Play Lundqvist's Former Team Frölunda In Exhibition Game

Who says you cannot go home again?  Henrik Lundqvist is going to do so with the New York Rangers and not just to play in Sweden this fall, but to play against his former team, Frölunda, which currently has brother Joel playing for them.  This news comes according to the Frölunda Indians website, which says New York will play the Swedish Elite League team in an exhibition before they start the regular season in Stockholm against the Kings.

The game will be played on either Thursday, September 29th or Friday September 30th.  If the Sweden return was not special enough for Lundqvist to kick off the 2011-12 season, now he gets to go back to where he played professionally at home before joining the Rangers.
