Milford honors LA Kings Goalie Jonathan Quick
Milford Mayor Ben Blake has declared it Jon Quick Day in the city because the L.A. Kings goalie, who led his team to the Stanley Cup Championship was born in Milford. The big question remains whether Quick will bring the famed cup to Milford.
Players are allowed to bring the Stanley Cup home with them for a period of time.
