LOS ANGELES, Calif. - Goalie Jonathan Quick has agreed to a 10-year contract extension with the Los Angeles Kings.

The Kings announced the agreement on Thursday for their Conn Smythe Trophy-winning goalie, who led Los Angeles to its first Stanley Cup championship earlier this month.

Quick can't sign the deal until Sunday, but he will be under contract through the 2022-23 season.

Quick just finished a career-making year. He was among the NHL leaders in many goaltending categories and made his first All-Star team while setting the franchise's single-season records for shutouts, save percentage and goals-against average. He was a finalist for the Vezina Trophy.

Quick was even better in the post-season, winning 16 of the Kings' 20 games with a 1.41 goals-against average and a .946 save percentage and three shutouts.
