Last season, Quick saw the most action on a Kings team that allowed a League-low 203 goals, eight fewer than the Nashville Predators (211) and 11 clear of the Boston Bruins (214).

He earned his second career Jennings Trophy as well as the second in franchise history, adding to the one he claimed with Los Angeles in 2013-14 en route to winning the Stanley Cup.
