Kings Injury Update: Jonathan Quick might not be ready for preseason games

By on 9/14/2014 11:00:00 PM

According to Ryan Dadoun of NBC Sports, Los Angeles Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick is still recovering from his wrist surgery and might not be able to start playing just yet. Quick's surgery took place back in June, and was only expected to take 10-12 weeks to recover. Although he is still hoping to be ready for training camp, it is still a question of whether or not Quick can play.

General Manager for the Kings, Dean Lombardi, says that whether Quick plays for the season opener will be a game-time decision. However, with the Kings lacking a third goalie, this could prove to be a challenge for the team. According to Lombardi, the players' performance during training camp determines their position on the team, as a try-out type camp. If Quick can't play at training camp, he might serve as the back-up goaltender to Martin Jones.

Quick finished the 2013-2014 regular season with a .915 save percentage, and a 2.07 goals against average. He helped take the Kings win the Stanley Cup, with a spectacular .911 save percentage, and a 2.58 GAA in the playoffs.
