With many sport seasons approaching, it’s no surprise another of our favorite athletes graces a magazine cover.

New York Rangers goaltender Henrik Lundqvist is our latest cover man, the fashion-forward goalie graces New York based Gotham Magazine. Gotham writer Gerry Eskenazi, sits down with Lundqvist, or fans might know him as “King Henrik”, to get the scoop on a series of topics–upcoming hockey season, fashion, charity work, growing up in Sweden and his current life as a new-found New Yorker.

Eskenazi uncovers different layers of Lundqvist and shows readers “ how much he cares, and that for him it’s not just about the money and trophies but about bringing a title to his adopted city”. Keeping both of his homes, New York and Sweden in mind, Lundqvist emphasizes the important things in life. “New York is a special place to be an athlete. When you do well, I don’t think there’s a better place to play—it’s so exciting and rewarding. But when you struggle, it can definitely be a challenge.” Lundqvist says.

Charity work and family, also are of great importance to Lundqvist. “When I first came to New York, I was impressed seeing all the money and time people put into charity work. I’ve decided to start my own foundation to try to do a little bit more here and reach out to people back home in Sweden”. Most importantly, Lundqvist gives readers advice which can apply to all, no matter our backgrounds. “You just have to manage your expectations and the pressure that other people put on you, and that you put on yourself” We’re excited to see Lundqvist and co. prepare for another run at the Stanley Cup this year, hopefully with a win in the works for our city.

On favorite Brands:

You were on the Vanity Fair best-dressed list this year. What are your go-to labels these days?
HL: I’ve been wearing a lot of Swedish stuff. It’s almost like when you leave your country, you love it even more; you’re proud of everything that comes out of it. There’s a brand called Tiger of Sweden I’ve been wearing. I really love Ralph Lauren, Stefan-F or John Varvatos for a little more rock ’n’ roll style. On off-days, I’m a jeans, leather jacket, and boots type of guy. For me it’s not so much about the brand, but about a good fit. I’m not someone who needs the most expensive brand.

There is nothing more timeless than the perfect suit. Lundqvist tells readers “five days out of the week we’re in a suit” and we do not mind. The tones of burgundy against the grey is not only an upcoming trend for fall but a combination which will always be quite swank.

Charcoal double-breasted pinstriped suit ($3,195), white three-ply cotton dress shirt ($395), burgundy silk striped tie ($205), and burgundy silk pocket square ($100), Ermenegildo Zegna. 663 Fifth Ave., 212-421-4488. 18k white-gold 40mm Altiplano timepiece, Piaget ($20,000).
This all navy ensemble could do no wrong. One word for this look at it is perfection. A Rangers jersey looks great on Lundqvist, but the classic suit look follows.

Double-breasted pinstriped suit, Hickey Freeman ($1,495). 543 Madison Ave., 212-586-6481. Blue slim-fit button-collar dress shirt, Brunello Cucinelli ($615). 683 Madison Ave., 212-813-0900. Navy wool-blend tie, Stephen F ($250). Polka-dot pocket square, The Tie Bar ($8). 41mm Heritage Black Bay steel case watch with aluminum crown, Tudor ($3,100).
