Jonathan Quick to rehab with AHL's Monarchs, but can't play

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-US PRESSWIRE

The winner of the 2012 Conn Smythe Trophy will join the Manchester Monarchs only to rehab and work out as he recovers from offseason back surgery.

While Los Angeles Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick will be joining the American Hockey League's Manchester Monarchs, it won't be to play any games, as the winner of the 2012 Conn Smythe Trophy will join the team only to rehab and work out as he recovers from offseason back surgery, according to Helene Elliott of the Los Angeles Times.

With most NHL transactions forbidden during the lockout, the Kings were allowed to give the rehab assignment to Quick as it was deemed a hockey-related injury that occurred prior to the beginning of the lockout on Sept. 15.

Quick, 26, has played for the Monarchs before, participating in 19 games with the team in the 2007-08 season and 14 during the 2008-09 season before taking over as the full-time goaltender for the Kings. He has not played for the Monarchs since and will reportedly not participate in games during this particular stint with the team.

During the 2012 NHL playoffs, Quick posted a 0.946 save percentage as the Kings lost just four games through the run before winning the Stanley Cup.
