Quick’s original timetable was three months, which would have seen him return in mid-January, but Quick will be out closer to five months according to GM Dean Lombardi. The GM also added that they’re not ready “to throw the kitchen sink” at team’s goaltending problems, which means that they should continue to roll with Peter Budaj and Jeff Zatkoff in net.
Quick (groin) will not undergo surgery; expected to miss about three months.
Quick will undergo a non-surgical procedure, but will about three months with a groin injury according to GM Dean Lombardi. The Kings will likely bring a goalie in from another team because Jeff Zatkoff proved he is not the answer in his two starts since Quick got injured.
The Kings put Jonathan Quick (lower-body) on injured reserve on Thursday.
The Kings did not release much information on Quick’s injury, other than to say that it was of the lower-body variety and that he is week-to-week. With Quick sidelined for an unknown amount of time, the Kings will turn to the duo of Jeff Zatkoff and Peter Pudaj. Zatkoff will likely start on Friday after stopping 16 of 17 shots in relief on Wednesday.
Quick left Wednesday’s game with a lower-body injury and did not return. Kings’ General Manager Dean Lombardi said that it “could be a while” before Quick is back on the ice. The American born netminder is scheduled to undergo an MRI on Thursday and more details should be released following the results of that MRI. If Quick is to miss an extended period of time, look for Jeff Zatkoff to take over as the starter and for the Kings to possibly look for outside help.

Quick left after the first period and is not expected to return. The Kings’ netminder stopped 14 of 15 shots in the first frame, that included a dustup with Joe Pavelski following the Sharks’ goal. There is no word on when Quick suffered the injury, but expected an update in the next 24 hours.
In 2015-16, Quick won 40 games for the first time in his career and ranks second in the NHL with 76 wins over the last two seasons. During that stretch Quick is also seventh in GAA (2.23) and tied for 17th in SV% (.918). He has been extremely consistent from year-to-year and makes for a safe No.1 fantasy option behind one of the league’s best possession teams. Tonight he faces a Sharks team that he was 0-3-0 with a 4.40 GAA and .845 SV% against last season
