The 32-year-old Quick has missed the Kings’ past 12 games due to a lower-body injury. When healthy this season, the veteran has struggled, posting an 0-3-1 record, .845 save percentage and an underwhelming 4.55 goals-against average.
Kings netminder Peter Budaj has been assigned to the AHL’s Ontario Reign in a corresponding move.
The Kings hope Quick’s return can help move the club up the standings after what has been a slow start. Los Angeles currently sits dead-last in the Pacific Division with an 8-14-1 record.
Forward Trevor Lewis was also placed on injured reserve by the club, retroactive to Nov. 16.
