Want Henrik Lundqvist‘s helmet? Well, it’s yours if you have enough money.

In an effort to help the victims of Hurricane Sandy, the Vezina Trophy winning goaltender announced on Twitter that he will auction off his helmet.

Lundqvist isn’t the only person associated with the sport that has decided to do something to help the recovery effort. St. Louis Blues and Nashville Predators alumni will play a charity game to raise money for storm relief.

The New York Isladners’ AHL-affiliate, the Bridgeport Sound Tigers are also offering free tickets to this weekends games to give those impacted by the storm a chance to enjoy themselves during these difficult times.

Fans going to the Bridgeport Sound Tigers can also bring non-perishable food for those victimized by the storm.

Lundqvist plans to reveal more details regarding the auction on Monday. The picture to your upper right was provided by Lundqvist via Twitter.

    Okay, now how many of you other players are going to join HL and help out? Although I’ve been harping on how important it is for fans to keep their wallets in their pockets when it comes to hockey, this is certainly an exception to that rule. Here’s hoping bidders are generous.

    Not even a Rangers fan, but if you’re not approving of this you’re just an awful human being. Same goes for any thumbs down on supportive comments for Henrik’s story, if you click thumbs down you are acknowledging you’re an awful person.

    Dina handlingar är ett utmärkt exempel på hur människor bör bete sig !
    Trots att jag är ett fan av Los Angeles Kings, jag verkligen respekterar din “anständighet” och “klass”. Bästa hälsningar och lycka till alltid … Blomfeld
