Quick's rehab assignment disrupted by bad weather
Los Angeles Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick will not play in the American Hockey League on a planned conditioning assignment this weekend due to weather that disrupted his travel plans.

Los Angeles Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick will not play in the American Hockey League on a planned conditioning assignment this weekend due to weather that disrupted his travel plans.

The plans to have Quick play for the Manchester Monarchs have been cancelled, Kings assistant general manager Rob Blake said Thursday.

Quick has not played since sustaining a groin injury Nov. 12. He was named to the U.S. Olympic team Wednesday.

LA Kings Insider said Quick was scheduled to fly from St. Louis, where the Kings play the St. Louis Blues on Thursday, to join the Monarchs for a road trip to Binghamton, N.Y., Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, Pa., and Hershey, Pa.

The Los Angeles Times said Quick's connecting flight through Detroit was cancelled due to weather, and the Kings did not want him to later be unable to get back to Los Angeles due to possibly more bad weather.

Instead, Quick, who has been practicing with the Kings during their four-game road trip, will return to California with the team. He could be back in the lineup sometime next week.

Quick, the 2012 Conn Smythe Trophy winner, is 10-5-0 with a 2.35 goals-against average and .905 save percentage this season.

Martin Jones and Ben Scrivens have filled in for Quick. The Kings went 14-2-3 without Quick before their current four-game losing streak.

Quote of the Day

I watched many times this year the series between the Russians and Canada in 1972, and he was a dominating player there. After I watched the tapes, I respect him a lot more because he turned the series around. He was the guy. In that time, he was the best in the world. It’s a big honor for me to tie him.
