Los Angeles Kings activate star G Jonathan Quick from injured reserve; missed 24 games

LOS ANGELES, Calif. - Goalie Jonathan Quick is back in uniform for the Los Angeles Kings after a 24-game injury absence.

The Kings activated Quick from injured reserve shortly before their game against the Vancouver Canucks on Saturday night.

The 2012 Conn Smythe Trophy winner hasn't played since he injured his groin late in a game at Buffalo on Nov. 12. Quick is 10-5-0 this season with a 2.35 goals-against average and a .905 save percentage.

Quick was named to the U.S. Olympic team on Wednesday for the second time.

Ben Scrivens also dressed for the Kings, which meant Martin Jones was likely to be a healthy scratch.

Jones won his first eight decisions after making his NHL debut last month. He still leads the league in save percentage (.950) and goals-against average (1.41).

Quote of the Day

(The tribute) was great, brought back a lot of memories. I felt I wanted to give them the thank you they deserved. I understand the booing and it was expected. They are great fans.
