Former Rangers and current Citals goalkeeper Henrik Lundqvist is still months away from making a final decision about his future in hockey after returning to the ice for the first time since undergoing open-heart surgery a few months ago.

The day after he posted these clips, he tweeted a clarification to all fans who thought he would soon be back on the rink in the NHL.
