With the NHL regular season winding down, we have learned which netminder will be taking home the 2014 Jennings Trophy. For the first time since the 2009-10 season when Martin Brodeur won the award, we have a goalie claiming sole possession of the award.
Jonathan Quick of the Los Angeles Kings brings home the award this season, thanks to a goal from New Jersey Devils defenseman Marek Zidlicky against the Boston Bruins.
The Jennings Trophy goes to netminders who have played at least 25 games on the team that finished the season with the fewest goals allowed. Zidlicky broke the tie, and with his goal against Boston, and Quick then wrapped up the award with the Kings season in the books.
Quick would have shared the award with teammates Martin Jones and Ben Scrivens, but neither player made enough appearances to qualify.
