Kyle Quincey (ankle) openly talked about his intentions to get surgery, but he wants to delay it until after Detroit's playoff run.

"Oh yeah, for sure," Quincey said of delaying the surgery if at all possible. "Then get the surgery after we win the (Stanley) Cup in June. That's the plan." He has bone chips that eventually need to be removed. He's known since October that he would eventually have an operation, but has managed to play in 52 contests despite that. At the same time, he's missed Detroit's last two games. The estimated recovery time from the surgery is six weeks.

Kyle Quincey earned a pair of assists in Tuesday's 3-1 win against Buffalo.

Kyle Quincey will indeed play tonight against the Washington Capitals.

Quincey didn't take part of the morning skate but Coach Babcock has confirmed that he'll line up with Danny DeKeyser to form their second blue line pair. Through 37 games, the veteran defender has just seven points, 37 PIMs, and 57 hits this season.
Jan 10 - 5:16 PM

Coach Mike Babcock has been impressed by the play of Kyle Quincey.

"He's a steady defensive defenseman who gets the puck to the net in the offensive zone, who can make a good pass in the defensive zone, competes hard, plays hard," Babcock said. "He's been a good player for us." The Red Wings bench boss said the team's best defense pair right now is Quincey and Danny DeKeyser. Quincey leads the club's defense corps with 56 hits and he sits third with 39 blocks, but he shouldn't be counted on to make many contributions offensively.
Jan 6 - 9:34 AM
