2. Jonathan Quick 

It was a down year for Quick, by his standards. It was a down year for the Los Angeles Kings entirely, as they failed to even qualify for the playoffs last season.

Quick did manage six shutouts, the fourth most in the league. His .918 save percentage ranked 17th in the league and his 2.24 goals-against average was the sixth best.

Oddly enough, Quick seemed to have gotten plenty of help from the team around him. He faced an average of 26.03 shots per game, which was the lowest number among goalies to have played 2,000 minutes. He still had a good season, but it was a disappointing one by his standards.

Perhaps the wear and tear of two Stanley Cup runs in four seasons had slowed Quick down. With a full offseason to recharge his batteries, Quick and the Kings should be right back in the fold of playoff contention for the Western Conference.
