Kings agree with Quick on 10-year extension
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.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed, but multiple media outlets are reporting the value of the contract to be $58 million. It can't be signed until July 1 and will not take effect until the 2013-14 season. Quick will make $1.8 million next season in the final year of his current contract.

"We are very happy to have a long-term agreement in place with one of our top young players," Kings GM Dean Lombardi said.

The 26-year-old goaltender just finished one of the most dominant seasons in NHL history. In the regular season, he went 35-21-13 with a 1.95 goals-against average and .929 save percentage. His numbers were good enough to make him a Vezina Trophy finalist, but he lost out to Rangers goaltender Henrik Lundqvist.

Quick, however, won the trophies that matter most. He led the Kings to the first Stanley Cup in franchise history with a 16-4 record, 1.41 GAA and .946 save percentage in the postseason. The Milford, Conn., native won the Conn Smythe Trophy as the most valuable player during the playoffs.

Quick's goals-against average was the third-best in postseason history and his save percentage tied for first all time.

In 249 NHL games, Quick is 131-87-25 with a 2.30 GAA and .916 save percentage.

He was selected by the Kings in the third round (No. 72) in the 2005 NHL Draft.
Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
