Lightning deal G Bishop to Kings

The Kings next game will come on Monday on the road against the Calgary Flames with either Quick or Bishop in net.

Kings goalie Jonathan Quick, who injured his groin in the season opener on October 12, returned to the lineup and made 32 saves in a 4-1 win against the Anaheim Ducks on Saturday.

Bishop, 30, is 16-12-3 with a 2.55 goals-against average and a.911 save percentage.

The Los Angeles Kings acquired goalie Ben Bishop in a trade with the Tampa Bay Lightning. He lost his starting job to Andrei Vasilevskiy in the playoffs last spring and there were rumors the Lightning would trade him before he becomes an unrestricted free agent at season's end. The Kings now have 64 points - three back of the St. Louis Blues for the final Wild Card spot in the Western Conference.

The Kings have played without starter Jonathan Quick for all but one game and one period this season because of a groin injury.

"It's great to be in the locker room on game day and all and to be a part of it", Quick said on Saturday, after recording 32 saves versus the Ducks.

Los Angeles has just gotten back goaltender Jonathan Quick from injury. Number one, you're never sure how well a guy who's been out this long - is he going to have his "A-Game, ' so to speak, or not?" On Sunday, the Wild made a small splash in the morning, signing free agent forward Ryan Carter to a two-way deal.

The Kings gave up backup goaltender Peter Budaj, 19-year-old defensive prospect Erik Cernak (who was a second-round draft pick), a seventh-round pick in the 2017 draft and a conditional pick for 2017 that could turn into a second-rounder depending on how far LA goes in the playoffs.
