LOS ANGELES — 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, but wouldn’t specify which wrist was hurt.
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 resume skating around the time Los Angeles opens training camp in September.
Quick was injured during the Kings’ second-round series victory over the Anaheim Ducks, but kept playing while Los Angeles won its second NHL title in three years. Although the injury didn’t prevent him from playing, team doctors suggested surgery after the season ended.
The 28-year-old Quick just completed the first season of a 10-year, $58 million contract with the Kings, who rewarded him after his dominant 2012 run.
