Kings trade Jonathan Quick, who led team to two Stanley Cup titles, to Blue Jackets: reports
Jonathan Quick was in between the pipes when the Los Angeles Kings won their first two Stanley Cup championships in 2012 and 2014, but his time on the West Coast appeared to be over Tuesday night.
The Kings agreed to trade Quick to the Columbus Blue Jackets for Joonas Korpisalo and Vladislav Gavrikov, according to multiple reports. Both teams have yet to officially announce the trade with the NHL’s deadline on Friday.

Quick was reportedly unhappy with the trade as Los Angeles defeated the Winnipeg Jets 6-5.
The Kings selected Quick with the No. 72 overall pick in 2005 after he guided UMass to the program’s first-ever NCAA Men’s Ice Hockey Championship appearance. A few years later, he took over the starting job from Jonathan Bernier and in 2012 he was a finalist for the Vezina Trophy.
