The position of goalie has an inherent romanticism: masked men clad with cool armor, serving as the last line of defense. They play entire games, with an unparalleled ability to impact outcomes. When they're on, they can single-handedly defeat a giant foe. They are the consummate underdogs and towering superheroes all at once.

Henrik Lundqvist - 2012 Vezina Award Winner
I realized I didn't post photos of Hank after he won the Vezina at the 2012 NHL Awards.
His lovely wife, Therese, wasn't able to attend the Awards show due to her advanced pregnancy, so here is a photo of the two of them at an event on June 12, 2012.
Such a beautiful couple, and I look forward to the happy news when their little girl is born.
