New York Rangers goaltender Jonathan Quick of Milford, Connecticut made National Hockey League history on Saturday when the Rangers defeated the Arizona Coyotes 8-5 at Mullett Arena in Tempe, Arizona. Quick won his 392nd NHL game all-time, and in the process became the all-time leader in NHL regular season wins by American born goaltenders. Of his 392 NHL wins since the 2007-08 season, 370 have come with the Los Angeles Kings, 17 have come with the New York Rangers and five have been with the Vegas Golden Knights.

Who had the old record?

Ryan Miller of East Lansing, Michigan had the previous NHL record as he had 391 regular season wins with the Buffalo Sabres, St. Louis Blues, Vancouver Canucks and Anaheim Ducks from 2002 to 2021. Miller had 41 wins with the Sabres in 2009-10 when he won the Vezina Trophy.

Where does Quick rank for most wins all-time?
