#1 Zatkoff needed assistance from teammates by tyabatino 23.10.2016 17:17

The hits keep coming for the Kings. Left wing Marian Gaborik went down and out first, suffering a broken right foot last month while playing for Team Europe in the World Cup. Goalie Jonathan Quick went next http://www.sharksteamedge.com/micheal-haley-jersey-c-3.html, hurting his groin in a season opening loss to the San Jose Sharks on Oct. 12.

Gaborik is out until Thanksgiving and Quick could be sidelined until January.

Goalie Jeff Zatkoff was the latest victim, suffering a groin injury Saturday during the Kings morning skate. Zatkoff was initially termed questionable to play during the Kings game later in the evening against the undefeated Vancouver Canucks at Staples Center.

Zatkoff then joined Gaborik and Quick on injured reserve, which means he will be sidelined for a minimum of seven days. He will miss games against the Canucks Martin Jones Jersey, Columbus Blue Jackets and Nashville Predators, and perhaps more.

He stopped a shot and his groin tightened up Logan Couture Jersey, Kings coach Darryl Sutter said of Zatkoff, who was 0 3 0 with a 4.38 goals against average and an .839 save percentage in three appearances as Quick s replacement to start the season. I ve seen it in a game. I ve never seen it in a practice.

The pregame workout is usually a time to work up a sweat during a 30 minute skate and prepare for the contest to follow. Zatkoff moved awkwardly after blocking a shot and slumped to the ice, according to teammate Tom Gilbert.

Zatkoff needed assistance from teammates and a member of the athletic training staff in order to get off the ice and into the adjacent locker room at the Kings training facility in El Segundo. He was not available for immediate comment.

The Kings recalled Jack Campbell from their American Hockey League team in Ontario to serve as Peter Budaj s backup for Saturday s game against the Canucks. Budaj made 17 saves in the Kings 4 3 OT victory Thursday over the Dallas Stars, ending a three game skid to start the season.

It was by far our best game, Gilbert said.

As a result, Budaj was scheduled to start Saturday, anyway, according to Sutter.

In a domino effect, Ontario goalie coach Dusty Imoo, 46, was the backup for his 22 year old son, Jonah, for the Reign s game Saturday against the San Jose Barracuda at Citizens Business Bank Arena. Jonah Imoo made his AHL debut; Dusty has been with the Kings organization for two seasons.

Budaj, 34, was set to be the Reign s No. 1 goalie for the second consecutive season, but was promoted when Quick was hurt in the first period of the Kings 2 1 loss to the Sharks while making a save. Zatkoff, 29, was signed to a two year, 1.8 million free agent contract last summer.


I ve played with Peter before, so I m comfortable with him Tomas Hertl Jersey, Gilbert said.

Gilbert and Budaj were teammates with the Montreal Canadiens in 2014 15.
