National Hockey League goalie Henrik Lundqvist announced Thursday that he will miss all of next season with a heart condition.

The 38-year-old said he’d been undergoing tests and tweeted, “The risk of playing without remedying my condition is too high, so I will spend the coming months figuring out the best course of action.”

Lundqvist signed a one-year deal with the Washington Capitals in October after 15 years with the New York Rangers.
