Now, the Los Angeles Kings goaltender had to have surgery after carrying the team in the playoffs to their Stanley Cup Championship. Quick had surgery to repair a disc fragment in a cyst that formed.

The surgery is considered minor by the Kings front office. He is expected to make a full recover, but will take six weeks to recover.

Two months ago, he signed a 10-year extension with the Kings. He signed the contract after going 16-4 with a 1.41 goals against average and a .946 save percentage with three shutouts.

He was 35-21-13 in the regular season with a 1.95 GGA and a .929 save percentage with 10 shutouts.
