Quick Diagnosed with Grade 2 Groin Strain; Could Miss Anywhere from 2 to 8 Weeks
After leaving Tuesday’s game in Buffalo with a lower-body injury, Los Angeles Kings’ fans anxiously awaiting word on not only what but how serious No. 32’s injury was.
We found out on Thursday as an MRI revealed that Quick has suffered a grade 2 groin strain.
While an exact timetable has yet to be announced, the 27-year-old backstop could miss anywhere from two to eight weeks. With Jeff Carter, Jarret Stoll and Kyle Clifford all sidelined in addition to Matt Greene being placed on long-term injured reserve, this is certainly a dark time for the Los Angeles Kings.
However long they expect to miss him, life without Jonathan Quick for the Kings will begin Thursday night on the road versus the New York Islanders.
