Ten-Year Extension For Jonathan Quick

LOS ANGELES – The 2012 Stanley Cup Champion Los Angeles Kings have agreed to terms with 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.

Bernier is on the block looks like, if he wasn’t already before.

Wow! 10 years for a goalie is like 17 years in forward/defenseman years. My math is correct, I’ve checked it twice.

Very few goalies can stay at an elite level for a long period of time. Brodeur being one of them.

Not so sure.  It’s possible of course, but neither Martin Jones or Zatkoff are ready to step in as a viable backup, so why not wait another year and make a move when he’s an RFA?

Quick’s a lot more durable than Dipietro will ever wish he was.  This is a safe signing for both sides.

Samuel L. Jackson’s character from “Unbreakable” is a lot more durable than Dipietro will ever wish he was.
