Hamden celebrity of the week
Jonathan Quick, National Hockey League Goalie
Quick is currently the goalie for the Los Angeles Kings and won the Stanley Cup in 2012 and 2014. At age 33, he holds the record for the most appearances and starts for Los Angeles and has the winningest record in a single Kings season with 40 wins and 23 losses. Quick grew up in Hamden and attended Hamden High School before transferring to Avon Old Farms, a preparatory school known for its hockey program. Ray and Mike’s Deli, a local favorite, named one of their sandwiches the ‘Quickwich’ in honor of Quick’s first Stanley Cup win.
