Jonathan Quick and the Los Angeles Kings agreed to a 10-year contract extension Thursday. The deal will keep Quick in town until 2023.
Jonathan Quick and the Los Angeles Kings will be married for quite some time. The team announced Thursday that they've signed Quick to a 10-year contract extension that will go into effect in July 2013. RDS reports the deal is worth $58 million, or a cap hit of $5.8 million per year.
Quick is already under contract for the 2012-13 season under the three-year deal he signed in 2010-11.The new contract will keep Quick in black and silver until the 2022-23 season.
The Kings were fast to brag about the contract on Twitter, saying, "To clarify, that's 10 years after next year -- so 11 years in total of our goaltender being better than yours."
Quick led the Kings to their first-ever Stanley Cup in 2011-12, winning the Conn Smythe Trophy as postseason MVP and the Vezina Trophy. He earned $1.5 million per season under his last deal and the assumption is that this new deal will bring him much more than that relatively paltry sum.
