Kings' GM: Goalie Jonathan Quick likely out another month

LOS ANGELES, Nov. 20 (UPI) -- Injured Los Angeles Kings goalie Jonathan Quick will be out of action for at least another month, General Manager Dean Lombardi said Wednesday.

Lombardi told a Toronto radio station the Kings' starting goaltender will remain on the shelf until at least Christmas "if things go according to plan."

Quick, the 2012 Conn Smythe Trophy winner, sustained a serious groin strain in the overtime of the Kings' Nov. 12 shootout loss to Buffalo.

Since then, backup Ben Scrivens has picked up the slack in spectacular fashion, going 4-0-0 with a 1.00 goals-against average and .963 save percentage.

He recorded back-to-back shutouts Friday against New Jersey and Sunday against the New York Rangers.

Los Angeles has gone 6-0-1 in its last seven contests and is in fourth place in the Pacific Division.
