Although he's been hampered by a groin injury for much of the 2013-14 season, Jonathan Quick is universally recognized as one of the better goalies in hockey. Although his NHL debut came during the 2007-08 season and although he was named--but didn't see any action--to the 2010 U.S. Olympic hockey team, Quick truly became a household name in 2012. In 2012, Quick posted a 1.41 goals-against average and .946 save percentage to win the Conn Smythe Trophy as the playoff MVP, while leading the Los Angeles Kings to the first Stanley Cup championship in their 45-year history.
