Rangers goaltender rewarded for solid play

Johnathan Quick is having a resurgence of sorts since arriving in the Big Apple and, according to one insider, the veteran goaltender's efforts are being rewarded as a one-year contract extension that will keep him around for another season.

The three-time Stanley Cup winner who split time last season between the Los Angeles Kings and Vegas Golden Knights holds a 13-5-2 record as Igor Shesterkin's backup this season on Broadway who themselves are in search of their first Stanley Cup trophy since the 1993-94 season.


Having a veteran presence behind arguably the best up-and-coming or best goaltender in the league is a smart decision by General Manager Chris Drury and the rest of the Rangers brass and if his cap hit comes in at a reasonable number, it does not hurt either.


As Quick approaches 40 years of age, you'd have to imagine that his career will be coming to a close soon, but one should wonder if the Rangers are legitimate contenders this April and if they will still be there by June.
