The LA Kings have recalled goaltender Peter Budaj from the Ontario Reign of the American Hockey League, Kings Vice President and General Manager Rob Blake announced today.

In addition, Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick has been placed on injured reserve.

Budaj was acquired in an offseason trade that sent Andy Andreoff to the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Budaj was with the Kings for two seasons from 2015-2017, appearing in 54 games with a 28-20-3 record, a .916 save percentage, 2.15 goals-against average and seven shutouts.

The 36-year-old native of Banska Bystrica, Slovakia appeared in one game this season for Ontario, earning the win, posting a .833 save percentage and a 4.88 goals-against average.

Per LA Kings Insider, the length of his stay will be determined after Quick is further evaluated.

"In terms of after today, we're going to have to wait and see," Stevens said to LA Kings Insider. "He'll get a further evaluation today and see exactly what the timeline looks like, and when we get someone in here today, I'm assuming if [Quick's] not ready to go, then that player will stay with us."
