EL SEGUNDO, Calif. (AP) -Los Angeles goalie Dan Cloutier underwent hip surgery in Colorado and will be out indefinitely, the Kings said Friday.

Cloutier, acquired from the Vancouver Canucks last summer and given a two-year, $6.2 million contract extension, had a torn labrum in his hip repaired. He hasn't played since Dec. 23 when the Kings lost 7-0 to Nashville.

Cloutier, 30, ranks last in the NHL with a 3.98 goals-against average and .860 save percentage.

Mathieu Garon figured to get the bulk of the playing time with Cloutier sidelined, but he was placed on the injured list Friday because of a finger problem. Garon is 8-7-3 with a 2.80 GAA in 20 games.
