On Friday night in Chelsea, legendary New York Rangers goalie (and legendarily handsome Swedish clotheshorse) Henrik Lundqvist invited a hundred or so friends and supporters for cocktails, lamb chops, and a short film to celebrate and support his Henrik Lundqvist Foundation, which supports a number of children’s charities. “When Hurricane Sandy hit, I wore a specially created goalie mask in a game and then sold it for charity,” Lundqvist says. “It ended up making $60,000, so recently I thought, ‘Let’s do that again, but let’s film it.’ ” The resulting series of six television shows on the MSG Network features interviews with King Henrik’s friends including John McEnroe, Michael J. Fox, Mario Batali, Tiësto, Jeff Gordon, and the FDNY’s own Rescue 1 company—as they set out together on each episode to design a custom goalie helmet for charity.
