Jonathan Quick hates giving up goals.
Like... a lot.
So it's probably a good thing that the LA Kings goalie picked up the William M. Jennings Trophy for the 2017-18 season.
The Jennings Trophy is an annual award given to the goalkeeper(s) having played a minimum of 25 games for the team with the fewest goals scored against it. Winners are selected based on regular-season play.

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.

Quick appeared in 64 games, ranking in the top 10 among goaltenders in wins (9th; 33), goals-against average (10th; 2.40) and shutouts (t-4th; 5).
"It's kind of been our identity for a long time," Quick told LA Kings Insider. "We try to defend well in our own end. Our forwards take pride in helping out, and I think we've obviously done it well for a long time. Even though we kind of mixed a few things up to get some more chances offensively, we still always have it in the back of our head how we have to play in our own end."
The Kings face the Vegas Golden Knights in the opening round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
