Los Angeles Kings goalie Jonathan Quick underwent wrist surgery that will sideline him for 10 to 12 weeks.

Yahoo Sports first reported that Quick was undergoing "emergency surgery" after parents of children enrolled in Quick's summer goaltending camp received an email stating that the 2012 Conn Symthe winner would not be able to participate. The Kings confirmed the surgery on Tuesday.

Quick's email said the injury occurred during a second-round series in the Stanley Cup playoffs against the Anaheim Ducks. He played through the injury as the Kings went on to defeat the Chicago Blackhawks in the Western Conference Finals and the New York Rangers in the Stanley Cup Finals.

The Orange County Register reported that Quick's recovery and rehab could extend beyond the start of training camp in mid-September.

Quick underwent back surgery after the 2012 season when the Kings won their first NHL championship but did not miss any games because of the lockout.
