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

I was going nuts and I saw [Subban], he was going crazy, and the ref had no idea where to go. [Subban] was skating to me, and I was skating to him and the ref was right in between us and I don't know, I kind of hit him pretty hard, I thought, but those were some emotions and I'm pretty sure he understands that.
