New Haven Register Names Quick Sports Person Of The Year

The New Haven Register has named former UMass hockey goaltender, current Los Angeles Kings' star Jonathan Quick its Sports Person of the Year for 2012:

"An impressive array of NHL greats have made their way through during the 45-year history of the Los Angeles Kings. Marcel Dionne, Luc Robitaille, Rogie Vachon and even Wayne Gretzky all had one common factor. None could bring the Stanley Cup to Hollywood.

That changed over the course of last season when a mixture of moving parts -- midseason coaching change, trades, minor league recalls -- all came together at the right time. The Kings, seeded eighth in the playoffs, won their first Cup. And at the root of their success was a goaltender from Hamden.

Jonathan Quick, at 26, proved to be a rock between the pipes. Confident, quick and never rattled, he was a difference maker. In the process, he became only the third U.S.-born player awarded the Conn Smythe Trophy as the most valuable player in the playoffs. For his effort, Quick has been named the Dave Solomon Memorial Register Sports Person of the Year."
