LOS ANGELES, Calif. - Martin Jones has been sent back to the minors by the Los Angeles Kings despite the goalie's record-tying start to his NHL career.

The Kings made the move Sunday, a day after Jonathan Quick returned to the lineup.

Jones matched Bob Froese's record when he won his first eight NHL starts last month for the Kings, who recalled him from their AHL affiliate in Manchester to back up Ben Scrivens during Quick's 24-game injury absence.

Jones still leads the NHL in goals-against average (1.41) and save percentage (.950) after going 8-3 for the Kings.

Quick had been sidelined with a serious groin strain since Nov. 12, but returned Saturday in a 3-1 victory over Vancouver.

Scrivens also has outstanding statistics, and he remains Quick's backup.
