Kings goalie Quick out with groin strain

Los Angeles Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick has a grade-2 groin strain, according to Kings coach Darryl Sutter.

The Kings had sent Quick back to Los Angeles on Wednesday for further examination and an MRI test showed the injury.

Sutter said Quick can begin rehabilitating the injury immediately, but said there was no timetable for him to return.

In his absence, the Kings called up Martin Jones from their American Hockey League affiliate to back up Ben Scrivens, who will start Thursday against the New York Islanders.

"We’re obviously confident in him," Sutter told reporters. "We haven’t seen him play that much. His [first] start on the road this year was a shutout in Florida, and he’s been in [five] times and has played really well for us off the bench, so we’re looking forward to seeing him."

Quick was injured in overtime of the Kings' game Tuesday at the Buffalo Sabres when he stretched to make a save.

Quote of the Day

I don't have a crystal ball. Predicting is a real complicated thing. If we stay healthy, have enough depth and get the good goaltending we think we're going to have, you can go all the way. But a lot of things have to happen. There's going to be a lot of teams that think the same thing. Everyone made deals. We're all are optimistic about where we'll end up.
