Jonathan Quick is expected to be out 3-6 weeks for the Los Angeles Kings following surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his knee.
The 32-year-old goalie missed a 4-3 win against the New York Rangers on Sunday because of what was called a lower-body injury. He was placed on injured reserve Thursday.
Quick is 0-3-1 with a 4.55 goals-against average and .845 save percentage in four games. He missed five games earlier this season because of a lower-body injury sustained during practice Oct. 6.
"Injuries do happen and not sure there's anything in particular you can point to in this situation," Kings coach John Stevens told LAKingsInsider.com on Tuesday.
"I think he's done a good job of really staying on top of everything, his preventative maintenance, his daily routines, so these things happen sometimes and you have to deal with them."
Jack Campbell likely will start most of the games with Quick out. He's 3-4-0 with a 2.72 GAA and .912 save percentage in seven games. The Kings recalled Peter Budaj from Ontario of the American Hockey League on Sunday.
The Kings play the Philadelphia Flyers at Staples Center on Thursday (10:30 p.m. ET; FS-W, NBCSP+, NHL.TV).
