Jonathan Quick’s sole winner of Jennings Trophy

New Jersey Devils defenseman Marek Zidlicky scored on Bruins goaltender Chad Johnson at 7:12 of the first period in this afternoon’s game, breaking the tie between Boston and the Los Angeles Kings for the fewest goals allowed.

Given that Los Angeles has played in its last game, that means that goaltender Jonathan Quick is the sole winner of the Jennings Trophy in 2013-14. The award goes the goaltender(s) that participate in at least 25 games with the team that finishes with the least goals allowed.

Quick only played in 49 contests, but because the rest of the starts were split between Martin Jones and Ben Scrivens, neither netminder played enough to qualify for his share of the award.

This is the first time that the Los Angeles Kings have ever captured the Jennings Trophy, but it’s the fourth time that a team coached by Darryl Sutter has claimed it. Quick is also the first goaltender to obtain sole possession of the award since it went to Martin Brodeur for his work in 2009-10.

    Shame that Jones/Scrivens won’t get their names on that trophy, as they certainly contributed to the Kings good defensive form.

      Absolutely. If they didn’t play as well as they did in Quick’s absence, then he wouldn’t be getting the award today.

      Well, frankly, it should go as much to the rest of the team for team defense, as well. I agree with Sutter, who said it’s really best suited as a team award.

    Quick is one of the top 3 goalies in the league right now. Well deserved and a pleasure to watch. The LA Kings are really gonna be solid in net for years to come, barring injury, since this guy hasn’t even primed yet.

    Well deserved.

    Another trophy for Quick.

    Hopefully as he gets older he will get even better so he does not have to rely on his amazing athleticism alone.

    Great goalie.

    GKG!

    MAY GOD BLESS JONATHAN QUICK !!!

    Aldog83 – I’m with ya man, however I remain ‘concerned’ about Jonathan’s long term prospects, given his aggressive and cutting-edge style of play ? As you know, the butcher’s bill is always ‘highest’ for those who choose to fight in the vanguard (Horatio Nelson). Nonetheless, on with the show as they say, eh ? :)

    GO COMRADE QUICK !!! …. TODAY, TOMORROW AND FOREVER !!!!!!!!!!
