Los Angeles Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick underwent surgery on his wrist Tuesday and will be prohibited from on-ice activity for 10-to-12 weeks, Yahoo Sports reports. The Kings did not disclose on which wrist the surgery was performed.
Quick reportedly sustained the injury during the Kings’ second-round playoff series against the Anaheim Ducks, and while it was not considered severe at the time, a postseason MRI determined surgery was necessary. The timetable puts his availability for September’s training camp in question, and it is possible he could miss the start the regular season.
Quick went 27-17-4 over 49 starts during the 2013-14 regular season, leading the Kings to the Jennings Trophy for the NHL’s lowest team goals-against average despite the fact he missed the first 24 games with a serious groin injury.
He then started all 26 of the Kings’ playoff games, going 16-10 during their Stanley Cup championship run, posting two shutouts and a .911 save percentage.
