Player of the Week - Feb. 9

The Hockey News’ player of the week for Feb. 2 to 8 is Los Angeles Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick. Yes, that’s correct. A Kings goaltender is our POW.

Don’t believe us? Check out the numbers. The 23-year-old Milford, Conn., native went 3-0-0 with a 1.67 goals-against average, .950 save percentage and grabbed a shutout for good measure.

Quick, the 72nd selection of the 2005 draft, blanked Ottawa last Tuesday to begin his run, gave up four goals to white-hot Washington, but still came away with a 5-4 victory – and as one THN staffer put it, allowing four goals to the Capitals these days is like allowing two to any other team. Quick finished his honor-worthy week by making 25 saves in a 3-1 victory over the fifth-overall New Jersey Devils.

For the season, Quick is now 10-6-0 with a 2.38 GAA, .920 SP and three shutouts. His unexpectedly stellar play even allowed the Kings to trade incumbent No. 1 Jason LaBarbera to Vancouver earlier this campaign.
