Los Angeles Kings goaltender and star Jonathan Quick has tentatively agreed to a 10-year contract extension, the team announced in a statement Thursday. 

The deal will lock up Quick through the 2022-23 season when he will be 36. He had one year remaining on his current contract.

Under the NHL’s collective bargaining agreement, Quick cannot sign the new deal until July 1.  Specifics surrounding his new deal are not yet known.   

Quick had a special year for the Stanley Cup champion Kings, winning the Conn Smythe Trophy for his outstanding performance in the playoffs. He was also a Vezina Trophy Finalist and was named an NHL All-Star.   

In 20 postseason games, the Milford, Conn., native filled up the stat sheet leading all playoff goalies with a 1.41 goals-against average and a .946 save percentage. He was also responsible for three postseason shutouts. 

The Kings originally selected Quick in the third round of the 2005 NHL Entry Draft.  

The Kings have been busy this week, finalizing new contracts with forwards Jarret Stoll and Colin Fraser on Monday.

Both would have been unrestricted free agents.
