Hey everybody, I hope your doing well wherever you may be! For my first post I thought what could possibly be better than an up close look and description for what Jonathan Quick is using between the pipes, lets get started.

First of all I just wanted to let everybody know that below is the Jpeg files of Quick setup I made for those of you who are visual learners or just too lazy to read the article itself (kinda like myself), here it is.

Heres the picture for those of you who are visual learners

Too start off, lets begin with Jonathan’s goal pads. Quick uses Vaughn V4 7600 Professional custom goal pads, some of his mods include…

-Stock V4 Protection        -One break below the knee, both internal and external and no breaks above the knee     -Narrow V2 leg channel      -Top 2 straps are both nylon click-in straps, one of which is below the knee on inside and other is above the knee on the outside       -Custom V4 graphic with alternate coloured “dragon tails” on the left and right pads       -Quick typically goes through 3 pairs of pads per season and takes 2 practices to break them in before using them in games

Now we’ll go to his blocker and catch gloves..

-Stock V4 7600 Blocker and goes through 8 of them per season     -Stock V4 catch glove with the top of the T-web stiffened and Quick goes through 8 gloves per season alongside 3 practice glove with extra protection

Now for his Warrior Swagger goal stick…..

-Quick’s goal stick is almost identical to the retail version except a slight tweak to the stand mid-curve at the toe   -26.5′ paddle, 29.5″ Shaft and a lie of 14      -The color pattern is the same as the retail version       -Quick goes through over 100 sticks per season, I’m not even kidding!

Now Quick’s Vaughn Epic 8800 Chest Protector….

-Pro 2010 stock model    -Large sized chest protector with medium sized arms     -Additional 1/8″ of low density foam behind the forearms and bicep floaters

and last but not least, the skates that give Jonathan the most explosive powerful pushes in the world….

-Bauer Supreme One100 skates with One60 cowlings      -Sized 10 E/A with some slight undisclosed modifications to prevent lace bites       -Quick alternates 3 sets of blades in his skates only using them for 3-4 times before getting new ones to help maintain height, power and “freshness”      -Jonathan’s skates are sharpened to 3/8″ hollow with 60-120 profile on 4mm blades

Please not that a lot of the information in this post is from InGoal Magazine and here is the link to the post

So thats everything on Jonathan Quick’s gear setup. I hope you enjoyed this article and below is a picture with all the information above with just a little more colour and a picture of Quickie in action. Also I operate my own youtube channel so below are the links to my youtube channel, our Facebook fan page and our official twitter account!

New York Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist, Nashville Predators netminder Pekka Rinne and Los Angeles Kings puck stopper Jonathan Quick were announced Wednesday as finalists for the Vezina Trophy.

Lundqvist is back as a finalist after being among the final three from 2006 to 2008. The Swedish native helped back stop Rangers  to first in the east this year, finishing in the top 5 in every meaningful statistical category.

Quick was the biggest reason by far that the Kings were able to squeak into the playoffs, with an NHL-best 11 shutouts. He lost six separate games by a 1-0 score, as his teammates were a lowly 29th of 30 teams in goal production this season. In my opinion, Quick wins it this year.

Rinne is a finalist for a second consecutive season. In addition to being up for the award last season he finished fourth in Hart Trophy voting as league most valuable player. This season, the six-foot-five Finn faced more rubber than any other goaltender but still managed to finish fifth in save percentage. (more…)

Jeff Zatkoff

The Good: Zatkoff is a goaltender with size that is extremely poised, confident and mature. What sets Zatkoff apart from many other big goaltenders is his tremendous athleticism. He possesses great reflexes and is good in his lateral movements. Zatkoff is also a fierce competitor and does an excellent job of staying square to shooters. While Zatkoff does a good job of steering pucks away from the crease, his puck handling, particularly in controlling rebounds, is an area that has improved over the years.  (more…)

Jonathan Bernier

The Goalies Archive

The Good:  Bernier is a hybrid stand-up and butterfly goaltender with great reflexes, is very quick moving from post-to-post with tremendous puck-handling skills around the net. He plays big in big games – except his performance in the 2006 CHL Top Prospects game, wherein the young goaltender allowed six goals on 31 shots in 32 minutes of work.  He plays with supreme poise and confidence, and can steal a game all on his own. He is also capable of shaking off bad goals, getting the Kings back into action. Bernier is a cheap ($975,000), talented goaltender with a ton of upside. If it wasn’t for Quick, Bernier would be the starting goaltender in Los Angeles right now. (more…)

Jonathan Quick

Posted: January 13, 2012 by Steven Ellis in Los Angeles Kings

The Good: Jonathan Quick has good size, tremendous quickness (Ht: 6-1 Wt: 214), durability and an aggressive workhorse mentality. He is very focused, displays supreme confidence in his ability to stop the puck. He can often been seen making highlight-reel stops and bailing out the Kings, who don’t remember how to score.  Quick is an athletic butterfly style goalie who moves laterally across the crease well and stays square to the shooter. He sometimes plays high on the crease, with a solid glove hand, challenging the opposition and cutting down on the angles. He is also an intense competitor and is best known for never giving up on a play. Scouts say his best attributes  are his athleticism, competitiveness and confidence. All-Star Goaltender.

The Bad: He gets into trouble when he starts scrambling in the crease area.  He goes down too early during breakaways, leaving the top of the net exposed. Quick can give up bad goals on occasion that deflate his team. Consistency and his ability to get over bad goals will get better with time but until then Quick will continue to struggle with his consistency and his ability to rebound within a game. Isn’t always able to bail out his team.
