Moving Quick to the long-term injured reserve is no shock, as the Kings revealed that he could be out at least another month with a groin injury. The 27-year-old has had an up-and-down season so far, while Ben Scrivens has impressed so far in relief.
The Kings’ offense has really dried up the last two games, as their two consecutive OT losses are hardly Scrivens’ fault. They’ve only scored a single goal in that duo of contests, so getting Carter back. The 28-year-old has five goals and nine points in 14 games this season after an almost-comical 26 goals and seven assists in 48 contests last season.
Los Angeles hopes to end this brief skid against the Canucks in Vancouver tonight.
