Report: Jonathan Quick likely heading to the Eastern Conference!

He could be on his way East!



The Los Angeles Kings pulled off one of the most stunning trades last season ahead of the National Hockey League Trade Deadline, sending franchise legend goaltender Jonathan Quick to the Columbus Blue Jackets in a move that almost nobody saw coming. The Jackets then pivoted and dealt Quick to the Vegas Golden Knights. 

Things worked out in the end for Quick, however. He and the Vegas Golden Knights would eventually advance all the way to the Stanley Cup Final, where they would quickly dispatch the Cinderella Florida Panthers in five games to capture their first title in team history. Quick will now have his name on the hallowed chalice for a third time.

The thought was that Quick could just elect to go out on top and ride off into the sunset of retirement as a Cup champion. However, according to former NHL goaltender and current analyst Kevin Weekes, Quick is interested in one last go around in the NHL - but closer to his home state of Connecticut. 

Weeks had the following to say just minutes ago on Twitter, hinting that Quick was on the verge of signing with the New York Rangers: 

It looks as though the Rangers could be moving on from backup goaltender Jaroslav Halak, who has stated his intent to keep playing for at least one more year. A veteran like Quick could look good in the blue, red and white of the Rangers while spelling Igor Shesterkin once in a while. 

He's coming off the final year of the 10 year, $58 million deal that he inked with the Kings after their Cup win of 2012.
