Lundqvist Shows Off New, Shorter Pads

Last week, Henrik Lundqvist expressed safety concerns about the NHL's recommendation to shorten the length of goaltender's leg pads. Well it looks like those recommendations have become a reality as the Rangers netminder tweeted out a pic of his new, shorter pads….

Here's Lundqvist on the new pads…
