Henrik Lundqvist wrote a letter to his 8-year-old self in The Players Tribune.
Lundqvist talks about how he became a goalie, growing up and playing with his brother Joel and coming to New York to join the Rangers.
On being a goalie, Henrik says "being a goalie is 90% mental. If you are stuck in your own thoughts or dwelling on negativity you won't have the mental focus necessary to compete and succeed. Nobody tells you this when you're a kid, but the best way to get in the right mindset is to start by having fun. The rest you'll figure out."
