Jonathan Quick surgery: 'Minor' back procedure for Kings goaltender

Publish date:

The Los Angeles Kings announced that goaltender Jonathan Quick, signed to a 10-year, $58 million extension in early July, had a "minor surgical procedure" on his back on Thursday to repair a disc fragment and an inflammatory cyst.

Quick will be sidelined for about a week and then begin rehab. The team said that his recovery should take about six weeks total, which would bring him to the start of training camp (assuming no lockout).
