"My little girl is here!! Everyone is doing great. She did not get the memo of me returning to practice today so we'll try that again," he said via Twitter on Friday evening.
Lundqvist was scheduled to participate in his first practice since being diagnosed with a vascular injury in his neck Feb. 3.
He was injured Jan. 31 against the Carolina Hurricanes when a shot from forward Brad Malone deflected off the stick of Rangers defenseman Ryan McDonagh and struck Lundqvist in the throat. He remained in the game and then defeated the Florida Panthers two nights later before being diagnosed with the injury. On Tuesday doctors gave him the clearance to begin practicing.
