Jonathan Quick signed a ten year deal with the Los Angeles Kings earlier today.
The Los Angeles Kings won the 2012 Stanley Cup, and that's mainly due to the efforts of their solid goalie. Makes sense to keep him around, right? The Kings agreed to terms with goaltender Jonathan Quick on a 10-year contract extension, Kings President/General Manager Dean Lombardi announced today.
The NHL CBA stipulates that no new contract can be signed until July 1st, so there is nothing official signed yet, except it pretty much is official. The Kings Twitter feed made it more pronounced.
To clarify, that's 10 years after next year -- so 11 years in total of our goaltender being better than yours.— LA Kings (@LAKings) June 28, 2012
Quick's goalie efforts really made it hard. Quick saved 94.6% of shots on goal, put up three shutouts, and posted a 1.41 GAA on his way to a 16-4 postseason record.
