Kings activate goalie Quick from IR after 24-game absence
LOS ANGELES (AP)
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).
