Kyle Quincey is confident being a leader even though he is new to the Minnesota Wild this season.
The veteran defender is slated to help whoever wins the job to be his defense partner. "For the past few years, all of my [defensive] partners have been a couple of years younger than me," said Quincey. "Being the older guy mentoring the guy coming up is fun. I enjoy it." Mike Reilly, Gustav Olofsson and Ryan Murphy are competing for the team's sixth and seventh defense spots. Sep 19 - 11:28 AM

There's a good chance that Kyle Quincey will be a healthy scratch again in Game 2.

"I’m just worried about speed," Blue Jackets coach John Tortorella said. "I’m looking for a little bit more mobility back there. Quincey has played well for us. This isn’t anything he’s done wrong. I have to make a decision. We have eight (defensemen). We can only play six." Columbus acquired Quincey at the trade deadline. He had six goals and 13 points in 73 regular season games.
