The Los Angeles Kings have enjoyed strong goaltending from Jonathan Quick since he arrived as the starter, but his regular season in 2012-13 was average. Although he rebounded with a strong playoffs in the spring, the Kings needed him to return to previous levels.
What's Being Delivered
Quick has battled injuries and hasn't been good enough (16 games played, 2.35 goals-against average and .905 save percentage) so far this year. Added to his 2012-13 season, there's some cause for concern, although the acquisition of Ben Scrivens and the emergence of Martin Jones leave the Kings less vulnerable.
Quick is the franchise goalie. Los Angeles isn't going to step away from him. However, the presence of Scrivens and Jones means there's internal options should things continue. He was recently moved to long-term injured reserve but should be ready for the Olympics. After that, the Kings will place him in the starting role and give Quick plenty of time to get things right before the playoffs.
