Goalie Jonathan Quick Signs 10-year Extension with Kings
Los Angeles, CA
Jonathan Quick will be minding the net for the Los Angeles Kings for 10 more years.
The 2012 Stanley Cup champions have signed Quick to a 10-year contract extension, keeping the goaltender in Los Angeles until the 2022-23 season.
"We are very happy to have a long-term agreement in place with one of our top young players. At this point we prefer to comment more on or around July 1," Kings general manager Dean Lombardi said in a statement.
Quick will sign the deal July 1, the date set by the collective bargaining agreement (CBA) for players who have one year remaining on their current contracts.
Due to CBA constraints, financial details of the contract were not available but a source said the deal is worth $58 million, which would mean a salary-cap hit of $5.8 million for the Kings.
The contract will be front-loaded, in terms of cash, because Quick will be 37 years old when the contract extension expires, the source added.
Quick won the Conn Smythe trophy due to his valuable role in the Kings' playoff run en route to the Stanley Cup.
In 20 playoff games, Quick compiled 16 wins while leading all playoff goaltenders with a 1.41 goals-against average and a .946 save percentage. He also tied for first with three postseason shutouts.
Quick finished second in Vezina Trophy voting this season, and in the regular season he ranked 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 set franchise single-season records in shutouts (10), save percentage (.929) and goals-against average (1.95). His outstanding season earned him the Kings MVP (Bill Libby Memorial Award), Best Defensive Player and Most Inspirational Player (Ace Bailey Memorial Award) trophies.
In 249 career NHL regular season games all with the Kings, Quick is 131-87-25 with a 2.30 GAA, .916 save percentage and 24 shutouts.
