The Vegas Golden Knights defeated the Vancouver Canucks 4-3 Tuesday night with Jonathan Quick starting in his sixth game with his new team. Quick stopped 31 of 34 shots en route to his 375th career NHL win, making him the second-winningest American-born goaltender in NHL history.
Quick officially passed John Vanbiesbrouck (374 wins) and trails only Ryan Miller (391 wins). Quick has played in 46 fewer games than Miller did in his career thus far at 37 years of age. The Golden Knights acquired Quick from the Columbus Blue Jackets/Los Angeles Kings at the 2023 NHL Trade Deadline.
Here's what head coach Bruce Cassidy, Alex Pietrangelo, and Teddy Blueger had to say about their teammates' achievement.
"He's a competitive guy in there and I think he has been a really good guy for the room. He's a good pro and hopefully, the young goalies will learn from that (Jiri) Patera was here, and Logan (Thompson) is young to a certain extent. He has a calmness in net and has been battling hard for us," said Cassidy.
"I just found out (about the milestone)… He's had a really good career. You have to play at the top of your game for a long time (to stay in the league) and he has been. I know firsthand playing against him in the playoffs when he was in LA and I was in St. Louis. He's fun to watch and to talk to," said defenseman Alex Pietrangelo.
"He's played awesome. Every game he has been in he has made some huge saves, especially very timely saves to keep us in games to prevent some goals," said Blueger.
The Golden Knights will play the Calgary Flames next on Thursday at 6:00 p.m.
