Quick was injured late in the first period of Wednesday's season-opening loss at San Jose.
He suffered a Grade 2 groin strain almost three years ago in Buffalo and missed nearly two months of action. Lombardi said on Friday that the latest injury is in the same area.
On Thursday, the two-time finalist for the Vezina Trophy — given to the NHL’s top goalie — was placed on injured reserve with what the team described as a lower-body injury. His status is said to be week-to-week.
