This time last year, Jonathan Quick was, by all reasonable standards, no higher than fourth on the Kings’ goalie depth chart. He enters camp this year as the favorite to earn the job, based on his strong rookie season last year.
I asked Quick if he prepared any differently, or had a different mindset, heading into camp this year.
“Not really,” Quick said. “I still have a lot to prove. I only played a half season last year, and I know that nothing is going to be given to me. I still have to play my way on to the team.”
