Los Angeles Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick is day to day with a lower-body injury and will be re-evaluated next week, the team announced, according to Jon Rosen of Fox Sports West.

Quick was injured in the first game of the season and didn't return until Oct. 18, though The Athletic's Lisa Dillman notes his most recent injury is not the same as before.

Injuries aside, Quick's start to the season has not been ideal, as he's 0-3-1 with an .845 save percentage and a 4.55 goals-against average.

The Kings have struggled with or without Quick in the crease, though, opening the season with a 2-7-1 record.

Veteran netminder Peter Budaj has been recalled from the AHL, though Jack Campbell will likely handle the bulk of the starts in Quick's absence. Campbell has been stellar when called upon, owning a .917 save percentage and a 2.67 goals-against average.
