The New York Rangers' Henrik Lundqvist doesn't just endorse underwear in commercials and play in bands on top of being one of the NHL's best goaltenders. He plays tennis too, and well.

On Thursday night, Lundqvist teamed up with tennis great John McEnroe in a celebrity tennis match against world No. 1 Novak Djokovic and actor Ed Norton. A match-point rally lasting over a minute rewarded Lundqvist and McEnroe with the win.

The tournament benefited McEnroe's charity, the Johnny Mac Tennis Project, which provides both financial assistance and tennis scholarships to kids in the New York City area. You can learn more about the charity here.
