Jonathan Quick’s Daughter Stole The Show At Last Nights Post-Game Press Conference (Video)
L.A. Kings coach Darryl Sutter and 2012 Conn Smythe Trophy winner Jonathan Quick aren’t the most loquacious guys in the NHL. Thus, when they sat down with a room full of reporters following the Kings’ Stanley Cup victory over the New Jersey Devils last night, the members of the media probably weren’t expecting to get a whole lot of material.
Then Jonathan Quick’s 2-year-old daughter, Madison, showed up, and all that changed.
For four solid minutes, while Sutter and Quick fielded questions from reporters, the rambunctious Madison stomped around the podium, waiving a Kings flag and uttering all kinds of toddlerisms. It was probably the first cute post-game press conference in the history of the NHL. And amazingly, the two grownups who were supposed to be in the spotlight actually managed to stay somewhat focused.
But the best part of the whole thing came at the 4:18 mark of the video below. That’s when the L.A. goaltender makes his best save of the playoffs—by saving his daughter from choking.
Here’s the whole adorable thing:
I love how, after saving his little girl, Jonathan Quick just sits down calmly, apologizes for the “M&M crisis,” and continues on. Surely, it’s those nerves that make him such a damn fine goaltender.
