The Kings had never done a 10-year deal. Not with defenseman Drew Doughty, not with center Anze Kopitar and not even going back to the days of hockey legend Wayne Gretzky. That barrier was broken Thursday with the team's 10-year contract extension with Conn Smythe-winning goalie Jonathan Quick. Those familiar with the deal but not authorized to comment on the details said it was worth $58 million, noting it tapered off in the final three years, making it salary-cap friendly. The extension kicks in after next season when Quick is to make $1.7 million, a bargain for a playoff most valuable player.

To say Jim Carey has struggled this season is putting it mildly. "I'm not going to win the Vezina," he said wryly. "Surprise."

He led the league with nine shutouts, was among the leaders with 35 victories and a 2.26 goals-against average and set team records for victories, games, minutes and saves.

Corey Perry is what hockey commentators call abrasive, an agitator. Opponents use words that can't be shared in polite company, yet they always welcome his fierceness when they're united by national or All-Star colors. But hockey is not a polite game and the Ducks right wing played it this season with a new edge and excellence. Perry, 26, led the NHL with 50 goals and collected a career-best 98 points while lifting the Ducks to fourth place in the West. Center Ryan Getzlaf struggled with injuries and others stumbled, but Perry consistently gave more than anyone knew he had. Still, his surprise was genuine Wednesday when he won the Hart trophy as the NHL's most valuable player, beating out NHL scoring champion Daniel Sedin of Vancouver and Tampa Bay veteran Martin St. Louis and becoming the Ducks' first Hart winner.
