Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist signs with Roger Federer's agent

Roger Federer's longtime agent is branching out beyond tennis.

The agency headed by Tony Godsick -- who has worked with 17-time major champion Federer for nearly a decade -- 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.
