LOS ANGELES, CA — The Los Angeles Kings, 2012 Stanley Cup Champions and parent club of the Manchester Monarchs, have agreed to terms with former Monarchs goaltender Jonathan Quick on a 10-year contract extension, Kings President/General Manager Dean Lombardi announced today. Under the Collective Bargaining Agreement, the new deal cannot be signed until July 1.
Quick, in addition to being a Stanley Cup Champion, is also a Conn Smythe winner, Vezina Trophy Finalist, NHL All-Star and Kings MVP who will call Los Angeles home through the 2022-23 season.
Quick had a record-setting year in 2011-12 for the Kings and ranked amongst the NHL's best in every major goaltending category. He was even better during the 2012 Stanley Cup Playoffs as he led the Kings to their first-ever Stanley Cup championship.
In 20 postseason games Quick compiled 16 wins while leading all playoff goaltenders with a 1.41 goals-against average (third best all-time for goalies with at least 10 games played) and a .946 save percentage (tied for third best all-time for goalies with at least 10 games played). He also tied for first with three postseason shutouts.
Quick's regular season NHL rankings were the following: first in shutouts (10), second in goals-against average (1.95), tied for fifth in wins (35), tied for fifth in save percentage (.929) and fourth in games played (69).
Quick, who was selected as the Kings MVP (Bill Libby Memorial Award), Best Defensive Player and Most Inspirational Player (Ace Bailey Memorial Award), set franchise single-season records in the following categories: shutouts (10), save percentage (.929) and goals-against-average (1.95). Quick also set a club record with three straight shutouts (October 18-22) and a consecutive scoreless streak of 202:11 (third period October 15 through first period October 27, stopping 92 straight shots). He's the first Kings goalie to win 30-plus games three straight seasons and the second to win 20-plus games four straight seasons.
The All-Star netminder allowed two-or-fewer goals 46 times during the regular season (31-8-7 in those games) and allowed one goal or shut out the opposition 27 times (18-5-4 in those games). Quick, who played for Team Alfredsson at his first All-Star game January 29 in Ottawa, was named an NHL Star of the Week three times during the regular season.
In 249 career NHL regular season games (all with the Kings) Quick is 131-87-25 with a 2.30 goals-against-average, .916 save percentage and 24 shutouts.
Among the Kings all-time franchise leaders Quick's rankings are the following: third in wins (131), first in goal-against-average (2.30), first in save percentage (.916), second in shutouts (24) and third in appearances (249).
The 26-year-old from Milford, Connecticut was originally selected by the Kings in the third round (72nd overall) in the 2005 NHL Entry Draft.
Quick collected a 17-13-2 record, a 2.48 goals-against-average and 0.921 save percentage in 33 games over parts of two seasons with the Monarchs from 2007-09.
