WASHINGTON --?Jonathan Quick will be Team USAs No. Nike Shoes Wholesale Australia . 1 starting goaltender for the 2016 World Cup of Hockey, coach John Tortorella announced Tuesday night. Fellow netminder Ben Bishop will serve as the backup.Quick led Team USA to a 3-2 win over Team Finland in the preseason finale Tuesday night at Verizon Center. He finished with 30 saves. After the game, Tortorella informed the team of his decision to name Quick the starter.A lot of things can happen in the tournament, but I believe in the body of work from all three goalies [including Cory Schneider], Tortorella said. Its a really hard decision. I think Jonathan has just done a little bit better than the other guys, so hell be our No. 1 guy to start the tournament.Quick, 30, helped Team USA to a silver medal at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver. He also played in the 2014 Games in Sochi, where he posted a 2.17 goals-against average and a .923 save percentage and he stopped five shootout attempts against Russia in a 3-2 victory.Ive only played with Quicky one time and that was in the [2014] Olympics, and you saw how good he was there, said forward T.J. Oshie. We definitely wouldnt have won the shootout without him. And then in the Canada game, he stood on his head. The Russia game before that, he made some really big saves for us.In my opinion, hes one of the best goalies in the world. He never gives up on plays. Hes got great hockey sense, and he can read where its going to go. I dont know if anyone has stronger legs than he does in net, so hes able to get across pretty quick. Its nice for a change to have him in our end.Quick won the Stanley Cup with the Los Angeles Kings in 2012 and 2014. He also won the Conn Smythe Trophy as the MVP of the 2012 Stanley Cup playoffs. He has 42 career shutouts in the NHL, the most by any American-born goalie. His 156 wins in the past five seasons are 30 more than any other U.S.-born goalie in that span.In the preseason for the upcoming best-on-best World Cup of Hockey tournament, Quick played two games for a total of five periods.Hes looking forward to starting against Team Europe in the first game on Saturday at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto.These last few games have been exciting, he said. If youve been watching them, teams have been playing with a lot of pace, everybodys fresh, everybody has their legs. Its not like the playoffs, when youve been playing for six or seven months, so itll be fun. Cheap Nike Shoes Australia .
