New York Rangers Star Henrik Lundqvist Signs with Team8 Agency

By Community | October 31, 2014

Sports agency Team8, headed by Roger Federer’s long-time agent Tony Godsick, will represent New York Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist for off-ice marketing deals.

Lundqvist led the Rangers to the Stanley Cup finals last season and helped Sweden win a silver medal in hockey at this year’s Sochi Olympics. His Rangers contract is worth $59.5 million over seven years.

Lundqvist is the first athlete from a sport other than tennis to be represented by Godsick’s agency, TEAM8.

Godsick left IMG in 2012; TEAM8 launched last year.

Aside from Federer, the agency’s tennis clients are 2009 U.S. Open champion Juan Martin del Potro and 2014 Wimbledon semifinalist Grigor Dimitrov.
