Jonathan Quick is back.
The Kings on Wednesday announced the veteran goaltender has been activated off injured reserve after being sidelined with a lower-body injury.

Quick was placed on injured reserve earlier this season and underwent surgery last month to repair a torn meniscus in his knee. He has missed the last 12 games as he recovered but was a full participant at Tuesday’s practice.
Luckily for Los Angeles, backup Cal Petersen has thrived in the net in Quick’s absence, as the rookie has a .927 save percentage and 4-3-0 record through eight games.
Quick, 32, is 0-3-1 with a .845 save percentage and 4.55 goals-against average in four games this season.
The Kings (9-14-1) are next slated to visit the Oilers (11-11-2) at 9 p.m. ET Thursday.
