Los Angeles Kings 6’ 1” 220-pound starting goaltender Jonathan Quick, from Milford, CT, turned 28 years-old on January 21. Let’s take a look at his accomplished career so far.

A silver medalist for Team USA in the 2010 Winter Olympics, 2012 All-Star, 2012 Stanley Cup Champion, and 2012 Conn Smythe Trophy winner, 2012 Vezina Trophy Finalist, and 2012’s Best NHL Player for the ESPY Awards, are just some of this phenomenal goaltenders honors.

Before the NHL Quick started his career playing for the Avon Old Farms from 2002-05, the UMass Amherst from 2005-07, the Reading Royals from 2007-08, and the Manchester Monarchs from 2007-08. Quick was the Kings 72nd overall pick in the 2005 NHL Entry Draft.

He began playing for the Kings in 2008 when Erik Ersberg suffered a groin injury and Quick proved to be a talent to look out for, receiving a spot as the third star of the week for his third week in the NHL. That season he was third among NHL rookie goaltenders in wins, goals-against average, save percentage, shutouts, appearances and saves.

Quick’s point blank saves and magical way of stopping the puck earned him the nickname “brick-wall” amongst fans during the franchise’s first Stanley cup win.

Quick is married to wife Jaclyn, and has a daughter named Madison (who will be 4 years-old in March) and son Carter born on April 9, 2013.

This is Quick’s first year playing in his 10-year, 58-million dollar contract.

In 310 regular season games Quick recorded, 2.30 Goals Against Average, .915 Save Percentage, and 27 Shutouts. In 50 playoff contests he recorded 2.03 Goals Against Average, .929 Save Percentage, and 7 Shutouts.

May this be just the beginning of greatness! Happy Birthday Jonathan Quick!
