The team award that inexplicably goes to an individual!

While some of the biggest awards tonight come with a level of mystery, some of the winners have been known since the regular season wrapped up, and one of them is going right to Jonathan Quick.

The William M. Jennings Trophy, awarded to the goalkeeper of the team with the fewest teams scored against it, will be going to Jonathan Quick for the second time. Quick previously received the Jennings after the 2013-14 season.

This year, Quick and the Kings allowed 203 goals, just barely edging out the Nashville Predators, who allowed 211.

And while individual statistics aren’t considered in the Jennings, Quick did have an excellent year, recording a save percentage of .921, his highest since his 2011-12 campaign, and a goals against average of 2.40.

Hey, he’s only got three more to go in order to catch up with Martin Brodeur!

Congratulations to Jonathan Quick (with stick taps to Darcy Kuemper and Jack Campbell) on the award!
