Groin may side­line Quick 3-4 months

Baltimore Sun - - MLB PLAYOFFS - News ser­vices

Kings goal­tender Jonathan Quick is deal­ing with a “bad groin in­jury” that might side­line him three to four months and re­quire surgery, ac­cord­ing to Sport­sNet.

Quick was in­jured late in the first pe­riod of Wed­nes­day’s sea­son-open­ing loss to the Sharks and was sub­se­quently placed on in­jured re­serve.

He was a fi­nal­ist for the Vez­ina Tro­phy last sea­son for the sec­ond time in his ca­reer.

As long as Quick is side­lined, the Kings will have to go with the com­bi­na­tion of Jeff Zatkoff and Peter Bu­daj un­less they make a move.

Sabres for­ward Evan­der Kane is out in­def­i­nitely af­ter crack­ing three ribs in Thurs­day’s sea­son opener. Coach Dan Bylsma said Kane would miss “weeks.” The Sabres are al­ready with­out top-line cen­ter Jack Eichel, who will miss sev­eral weeks af­ter be­ing di­ag­nosed Wed­nes­day with a high an­kle sprain. ... Cana­di­ens goalie Carey Price will sit out at least one more game be­cause of the flu. The team said Price would not play Satur­day night at Ot­tawa af­ter miss­ing a 4-1 vic­tory at Buf­falo on Thurs­day. ... For­ward Rickard Rakell agreed to a six-year, $22.8 mil­lion deal to stay with the Ducks. Rakell has 29 goals and 49 as­sists in 165 games for the Ducks. ... In vot­ing by a 31-per­son com­mit­tee and thou­sands of fans, Dave Keon was voted the great­est player in the Maple Leafs’ 100-year his­tory. Syl Apps was sec­ond on the list, fol­lowed by Ted Kennedy, Dar­ryl Sit­tler, Mats Sundin, Tim Hor­ton, Johnny Bower, Borje Salm­ing, Frank Ma­hovlich and Turk Broda.
