Conn Smythe Trophy-winning goalie Jonathan Quick and teammates Matt Greene and Jarret Stoll joined coach Darryl Sutter, general manager Dean Lombardi and the rest of the Kings' brass Thursday to announce a million-dollar charity donation and a major team sponsorship agreement with McDonald's.
Sutter coached the Chicago Blackhawks during the NHL's last shortened season in 1995, so he knows its particular challenges.
