LOS ANGELES (AP) - Los Angeles Kings goalie Jonathan Quick will be off the ice for up to three months after undergoing wrist surgery.
The Stanley Cup champion Kings confirmed their star goalie had surgery on Tuesday. They wouldn't specify which wrist was injured.
Quick was injured during the Kings' second-round series victory over the Anaheim Ducks, but kept playing while Los Angeles won its second Stanley Cup title in three years. Team doctors suggested surgery after the season ended.
The 2012 Conn Smythe Trophy winner is likely to be off the ice for 10 to 12 weeks, which means he would be ready to practice about when the Kings open training camp in September.
Quick won the Jennings Trophy for the Kings last season with the NHL's lowest goals-against average.
