Veteran goaltender Jonathan Quick is coming back for at least one more season.

According to a report from National Hockey League insider Pierre LeBrun, Quick has agreed to terms on a new deal with the New York Rangers. The deal will be just a 1 year contract and will carry a very reasonable cap hit of just $825,000, although there are some bonuses in the deal that could push that number up a little.

Quick is of course one of the most recognizable goaltenders in the National Hockey League as a long-time member of the Los Angeles Kings franchise and a multi-time Stanley Cup champion and brings with him a wealth of experience along with a championship pedigree.

Although Quick's role has diminished in the latter stages of his career he has shown himself to be a serviceable backup, most recently as a member of the Vegas Golden Knights. Quick appeared in 10 regular season games for the Golden Knights, recording a 3.13 goals against average and a .901 save percentage over that stretch.

The Rangers no doubt view him as an ideal type of backup to have behind a young star goaltender like Rangers' own Igor Shesterkin.
