Los Angeles Kings goalie Jonathan Quick hoisted the Stanley Cup last Monday at the team's celebratory parade. If you saw him wincing, there's a reason why. 

Quick had surgery on Tuesday, after injuring his wrist during the Stanley Cup Playoffs. The Kings confirmed the procedure, but couldn't specify which wrist was injured. 

Quick. 28, was scheduled to appear on the ice at the goalie camp that bears his name at Stamford Twin Rinks in Connecticut, which is owned by his father-in-law. An email sent to parents who enrolled their children in the summer camp explained that Quick was having "emergency surgery" on a wrist injury. The Kings later said the surgery wasn't an emergency procedure. 

The email said that Quick was injured in Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final against the New York Rangers; the Kings later said that he injured his wrist in the second round of the playoffs against the Anaheim Ducks. 

The injury was originally thought not to be severe. But after a postseason MRI, the damage was reassessed and Quick went under the knife on Tuesday.

The expected recovery time is 10-12 weeks, and he’s prohibited from being on the ice during that time.

He’s still expected to appear at the Jonathan Quick Goalie Camp in an advisory capacity, and the camp offered full refunds for anyone that requested one.

Quick won his second Stanley Cup with the Kings this month after posting a 16-10 record with a .911 save percentage and a 2.58 goals against average. He allowed 10 goals in five games against New York, but pitched a shutout in Game 3. Quick completed the first year of a 10-year, $58-million contract.
