The Kings, who captured their first Stanley Cup in franchise history last month, are up for the Best Team award. They also are nominated in the Best Upset category after becoming the first No. 8 seed in NHL history to win the Stanley Cup.

Individually, goaltender Jonathan Quick is up for the Best Championship Performance Award and Darryl Sutter is nominated in the Best Coach/Manager category. Quick went 16-4 in the postseason with a 1.41 goals-against average and .946 save percentage. Sutter went 25-13-11 after taking over for Terry Murray behind the bench in the regular season.

Quick, who was a finalist for the Vezina Trophy, also is nominated in the Best NHL Player category along with Steven Stamkos of the Tampa Bay Lightning, Henrik Lundqvist of the New York Rangers, Evgeni Malkin of the Pittsburgh Penguins and Claude Giroux of the Philadelphia Flyers.

FANS CAN VOTE HERE. With the exception of the Best Team award, all voting must be completed by 8:59 p.m. ET, with the show airing at 9 p.m. on ESPN.

Quote of the Day

Philadelphia is where I started my NHL career and this is where I want to be so I am really happy. This definitely gives me a lot of confidence by the Flyers showing that they have confidence in me. I know they want to see me get better as a player and this is the place to do it.

— Zac Rinaldo to the Flyers website on signing a two-year contract extension with Philadelphia
