Quick, 27, has missed L.A.'s past 24 after sustaining a lower-body injury on Nov. 12 against the Buffalo Sabres. He traveled and practiced with the team during the recent four-game road trip through the Midwest. The Kings returned home Saturday to host the Vancouver Canucks.
Quick has played in 16 games this season and has a 10-5-0 record, one shutout, a 2.35 goals-against-average and a .905 save percentage. Earlier this week he was named to the U.S Olympic Team for the second time.
It's such a privilege to be one of these 80 great players to do this milestone, and it doesn't get better than this doing it where I started. It means a lot to me. A big thanks goes to all the players tonight who helped me to achieve that and also all the players through my career.
