POLL: Player of the Month (January)

Last month Jonathan Quick was denied the hat trick when Dustin Brown garnered 41% of the votes – capturing the title of Player of the Month for December.

The Kings starting goaltender had been a back-to-back winner, having captured the title in October with 51% of the votes and November with 52%, beating Justin Williams both times.

We’re probably going to have a new winner this month though. Brown had just three points in January, so he’s not going to repeat. And the goaltending wasn’t stellar for more than half the month, so Quick may not get many votes.

However, he did make a strong run the final week – including a 2-0 shutout over the Boston Bruins and 3-2 shootout victory over the San Jose Sharks.  Those numbers earned him the NHL’s second star of the week earlier today.  Will it be enough?

On another positive note, Jarret Stoll bounced back from a disappointing December and had a strong month.

Here’s the list…

(in alphabetical order)

Anze Kopitar – eight points (1g, 7a) and was plus-1

Jonathan Quick – record of 4-6, one shutout, gave up an average of 2.2 goals in 10 starts

Ryan Smyth – ten points (5g, 5a) and was plus-7

Jarret Stoll – nine points (6g, 3a) and was plus-2

Justin Williams – seven points (3g, 4a) and was plus-6

Who gets your vote?


Poll closes tomorrow at noon.
