Jonathan Quick helped seal the deal in the U.S. Men's Hockey Team decisive win over Slovakia Thursday.

Quick racked up 22 saves, and only allowed one goal in the 7-1 victory. A goal for the L.A. Kings, Quick is a Milford native and a graduate of Old Avon Farms boarding school in Avon, Conn. He is 28 years old.

The men's team also includes two other players with Connecticut ties:

  • Max Pacioretty, a New Canaan High School Ram for one year before transferring to Taft in Watertown. The standout forward has been with the Montreal Canadiens since the Habs drafted him in 2007.

  • Kevin Shattenkirk, a 24-year-old New Rochelle, NY, native and 2004 graduate of The Brunswick School in Greenwich, Conn., plays professionally for the St. Louis Blues.
Both Shattenkirk and Pacioretty saw action on Thursday — Shattenkirk had an assist, and Paul Stastny put one in off a rebound shot by Pacioretty.

The men's team will play Russia at 7:30 a.m. on Feb. 15. It will be broadcast on NBCSN.
