Kings' Quick suffers potentially serious injury vs. Sharks
Kings general manager Dean Lombardi didn't delve into specifics, but when asked about the lower-body ailment Quick suffered - which prevented him from coming out for the second period in Wednesday's season opener - he told Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider that his starter could be out "a while."
Quick made a league-high 68 starts last year, winning 40 games and recording five shutouts. He made 72 appearances the season prior.
Lombardi has invested an inappreciable portion of his payroll into his backup, Jeff Zatkoff, in large part likely because his starter traditionally takes on such a substantial workload.
Jack Campbell, Peter Budaj, and Tom McCollum are also in the system.
