L.A. Kings goalie Jonathan Quick has undergone surgery to repair wrist damage, the club revealed on Tuesday.

The Kings confirmed the procedure after a report from Yahoo Sports said parents with kids enrolled in Quick’s summer goaltending camp received an email that the 28-year-old goalie wouldn’t be in attendance following “emergency surgery.”

Per Yahoo, that email said Quick was hurt in the Stanley Cup Final versus New York, but the Kings said he was actually injured during their second round playoff series against Anaheim. They also confirmed it was indeed a wrist injury, but failed to specify if it was right or left.

The O.C. Register reports that Quick will be out 10-12 weeks rehabbing and that, should training camp open in mid-September — 11 weeks from now — he could be sidelined for the start.

It won’t be the first time the ’12 Conn Smythe winner faces a long summer of rehab. Following L.A.’s first championship win, Quick underwent back surgery that sidelined him through November, though he didn’t miss any training camp or game action due to the lockout.

      Using half-assed quotes/apostrophes to say ‘brave & valiant’ makes it sound like you’re being sarcastic.

    If he had wrist surgery there is a good chance the doctor had to put in a steel plate and screws into the wrist area. Wonder if surgery was on his glove hand or the blocker side. Surprising the Kings did not just say Jonathan has an upper body injury if they are intent on keeping things a secret.

      No need to keep it a secret now, the Cup is securely back where it belongs. The team certainly did a good job of “keeping things a secret” when it counted most: Through the finals.

    Winning the Cup with a messed-up wrist. Now THAT’S dedication to hockey. Quick’s a warrior just like the rest of his team.

    GKG!
