First, just an update on the Brandon Segal situation. If/when he clears waivers tomorrow, it doesn’t automatically mean he’s leaving the Kings, but obviously it’s likely. Rosters are frozen on Friday for the Olympic break, so the Kings need the ability to send him down. Another player could be called up, and then back, in the interim. It’s all fun and games with the collective-bargaining agreement!
Moving on to Jonathan Quick, Terry Murray said Quick will start the final two games before the Olympic break and quickly brushed aside any suggestion that Quick might be getting fatigued.
MURRAY: “He told me he’s doing great. Quick is playing. He feels great. He’s fresh. He’s feeling strong and he’s very excited about what’s going on here. If you can’t get excited about a nine-game winning streak… Why would you ever leave that battleground? You want to stay with it and build on it. He’s feeling good.”
Could Murray actually envision, he was asked, Quick starting more than 70 games this season?
“He’s heading in that direction,” Murray said.
