"It's a great accomplishment. It's something I'm looking forward to do at the end of the month," he said, talking about the Jan. 29 game after the Kings skated in El Segundo in advance of Thursday's game against the Dallas Stars at Staples Center.
"But right now we've got a lot of things going on here. We've got a big game tonight against Dallas. That's ultimately what we're all focused on."
The only other Kings goalies to make an All-Star team were Terry Sawchuk in 1968, Rogie Vachon in 1973, 1975 and 1978, and Lessard. Quick enters Thursday's game with the fourth-best goals-against average (1.93), fifth-best save percentage (.934), a league-leading six shutouts and eighth-best number of wins (18).
Quick said he didn't know any of the other all-stars and that he found out he would be taking part in the game in Ottawa when Coach Darryl Sutter gave him the news on the ice at the end of the morning skate. He joked that his teammates didn’t treat him like an all-star.
