Will The 'Quick' Signing Pay Off For Rangers Hockey?

Igor Shesterkin started his career under Henrik Lundqvist, now a seasoned vet and face of the Rangers’ franchise, he will now get another hall of fame goalie to work with.

Several weeks ago the New York Rangers signed Jonathan Quick to a 1-year/$925K contract. Quick spent 2022/23 split between the Kings and Golden Knights. Quick posted a 16-15-6 record over 41 games with a 3.41 GAA, .882sv% and two shutouts.

The signing guarantees that Jaroslav Halas will not be back and it wasn't even reported that New York had any conversations of that possibility, instead going right to Quick.

Quick is widely regarded as one of the best goaltenders in NHL history, winning three Stanley Cups and has a spot in Toronto, waiting for him once he retires. However, the Connecticut native has been on the decline over the past several seasons and will be a backup in New York.

It is not expected that he will get much playing time with Vezina Trophy winner Shesterkin expected to carry the bulk of starts. Nevertheless the championship presence of Quick could pay off in the lines and player development, it will definitely pay in ticket prices.
