Many pro athletes around the globe have gone above and beyond for their organizations and their communities amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Some offering up funds to pay part-time arena staff and others affected by the virus. Others share their wealth out into the broader community, much like what Henrik Lundqvist has done in New York.

QZ

On Wednesday evening, Lundqvist, along with his wife, announced that they would be donating $100,000 to The Food Bank for New York City.


It's fantastic to see athletes stepping up for their communities during a time of need. The generous donation is expected to help feed over 8000 less fortunate people and provide over 68,000 meals in all.

In the grand scheme of things, seeing everyone band together and offer up what they can to help the less fortunate navigate this devastating situation is very humbling. Thankfully for the people of New York, "The King" has made it evident that he has their backs during a time crisis.



There is much speculation that Lundqvist's time in The Big Apple is coming to a close, with just one year remaining on his contract, at an $8.5M cap hit. Perhaps this act of generosity is just another way to show the team and the community where his heart and his allegiance truly lies.
