Jonathan Quick reportedly out until late December
Dean Lombardi has revealed some news on Kings' goaltender Jonathan Quick's estimated return.
Kings GM Dean Lombardi was a guest on Sportnet's Hockey Central earlier today and had an update on Jontathan Quick:
@LAKings gm dean lombardi tells hc@noon that John Quick will be out another month. Prob until xmas. #sportsnet— Daren Millard (@darenmillard) November 20, 2013
Initial reports speculated that Quick could be out 3 to 6 weeks. A Christmas return date would put Quick in the 6 week recovery timeframe.
This pill is currently being made very easy to swallow given the recent play of NHL shutout leader Ben Scrivens. The Kings have won 4 in a row since Quick's injury, while Scrivens has recorded 2 shutouts and a .963 save percentage in that span.
