The best goalie in the world is a Winged Beaver. He lived in Jennings dormitory, ate his meals in the Refectory, and can tell you who Diogenes was. Jon Quick is just like any other alumnus, except for one thing... his name is etched into Lord Stanley's Cup.
Jon Quick '05 is on top of the hockey world, leading the LA Kings to their first Stanley Cup in franchise history. Los Angeles sent the New Jersey Devils packing with a 6-1 win on Monday night to end the series in six games and leave Hollywood in hysteria.
Quick collected even more hardware as he became only the third American-born recipient of the Conn Smythe trophy. Amazingly, he is now the 2nd Avon graduate to capture the NHL playoff's highest honor as the Most Valuable Player.
Congratulations to Jonathan Quick and the LA Kings!
