The Rangers have finally disclosed the terms of Lundqvist’s deal, and it is worth a whopping $6.875 million per year for six years — a total of $41.25 million. The contract also includes a no-trade clause that kicks in during the 2009-10 season. The way his no-trade clause works is that if the team informs Lundqvist he is to be traded, he would be allowed to list 8 teams that he could not be traded to.
King Henrik is now the league’s highest-paid goalie, eclipsing the Canucks’ Roberto Luongo, who makes a paltry $6.75 million per year. Now he can definitely afford that swanky UWS apartment he bought last year.
