2004 Henrik Lundqvist Team Sweden Blue, Gold & White TPS Game Worn Gloves - Photo Match
Lot #327
These blue, gold and white goalie gloves by TPS were game worn by superstar goaltender Henrik Lundqvist in 2004 and during the 2004 Men’s World Ice Hockey Championships played in the Czech Republic. Lundqvist was drafted by the New York Rangers in the 2000 NHL Entry Draft. After 5 seasons in the Swedish Hockey League, Lundqvist came to the Rangers to start the 2005-06 season. With starting goaltender Kevin Weekes injured, Lundqvist made his NHL debut on October 8, 2005. Henrik finished the 2005-06 season with 30 Wins in only 53 starts and had a stellar GAA of 2.24, good enough to place him on the All Rookie team. The 2012-13 strike shortened season broke Henrik’s 30-Win streak at 7, with consecutive Win seasons of 30, 37, 37, 38, 35, 36 and 39, quite a run. That run made Lundqvist the only goaltender in NHL history to have 30 Wins in his first 7 seasons.

Henrik finished the 2013-14 season with 309 career Wins in only 9 NHL seasons, this places him 24th on the all-time Wins list and #1 on the New York Rangers Wins list. Imagine where he’d be if he didn’t spend 5 years playing in Sweden. He already has more career shutouts, 50, than any Rangers goalie in team history. Lundqvist is a 1st team NHL All Star, a Vezina Trophy winner and has played in 3 NHL All Star games. On the International stage, Lundqvist has a Gold Medal from the 2006 Winter Olympics in Turin, a Silver Medal from the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi and two Silver Medals, one each from the 2003 and 2004 World Championships.

These blue, gold and white TPS goalie gloves each have the player name “Lundqvist” stitched on the back. The blocker shows solid game use, while the catcher shows lighter use. Shown above are a number of beautiful photo matches of Lundqvist wearing this exact blocker during the 2004 World Championships. We have thus far been unable to match the catcher. An outstanding pre-rookie offering, worn by Lundqvist during his days with Team Sweden as they captured Silver during the 2004 World Championships.
