Goalie Profiles: Jonathan Quick of the L.A. Kings
The Los Angeles Kings' goaltending record book is dominated by one man. Whether regular-season or postseason records, practically every significant franchise achievement for goalies is held by Jonathan Quick.
Jonathan Quick is a native of Milford, Connecticut and was selected by the Los Angeles Kings in the third round (No. 72) of the 2005 NHL Draft. Quick spent two seasons at the University of Massachusetts before a meteoric rise through the ECHL and the American Hockey League. His NHL debut came against the Buffalo Sabres on 12/6/2007 where he stopped 15 of 17 shots in the win.
A two time Stanley Cup Champion, Quick helped LA win the first of two championships in 2012. In the 2012 season Quick played in his first All-Star Game, made the NHL 2nd All-Star Team, was a Vezina Trophy finalist, and also won the Conn Smythe Trophy as playoff MVP. In the 2012 playoffs, he led all goalies with 16 wins, a 1.41 GAA and a .946 save percentage as the Kings won their first Stanley Cup since entering the NHL in 1967. Two years later, Quick helped the Kings win their second title after a regular season when he won the Jennings Trophy.
Quick recently played in his 700th regular-season game, on 3/13/2022 against the Florida Panthers. Quick became just the 30th goaltender in NHL history to reach the 700-game mark. He is only the fourth American to reach the 700 game plateau and the only goalie to do so in a Kings uniform.
