Jonathan Quick of the Los Angeles Kings won his second career William M. Jennings Award on Sunday. The William M. Jennings Award is presented to the goaltender or goaltenders who have played a minimum of 25 games and play for the team that has given up the least number of goals in the National Hockey League's regular season.
The Kings gave up a National Hockey League least 203 goals this season. Quick had a record of 33-28-3 in 64 games this season with a goals against average of 2.40 and save percentage of .921. In the 3677 minutes Quick played this season, he gave up 147 goals.
Quick previously won the William M. Jennings Award in 2014. That year the Kings gave up a National Hockey League least 174 goals. Four years ago Quick had a record of 27-17-4 in 49 games with a goals against average of 2.07 and save percentage of .915.
Quick won the award even though the Kings gave up more than 200 goals as an organization in 2017-18. It was the first time since 2005-06 that a goaltender won the award when his team gave up 200 goals or more. In 2005-06, Miikka Kiprusoff of the Calgary Flames won the award as the Flames gave up a NHL least 200 goals.
The Kings now are preparing for the 2018 Stanley Cup Playoffs against the Vegas Golden Knights. For tickets to game three of the first round playoff series at the Staples Center on April 15, please click here.
