Cloutier, sidelined since Dec. 23 by hip and knee injuries, had his hip reexamined by a specialist in Colorado to determine the extent of damage. He will meet with team officials this week to decide on the best course of action, which could range from extended rest to surgery.
“We’ll sit down with Dan and his representatives and the doctors and see what the best avenue is,” Coach Marc Crawford said. “It could be the surgical avenue and could be the rest avenue. We’ll just have to wait and see.”
Kings officials do not believe the hip injury is career threatening. Cloutier, who signed a two-year, $6.2-million contract extension in September, is also suffering from tendinitis in his knee, believed to be caused by compensating for his hip injury.
