Kyle Quincey (ankle) will play in Detroit's game against Tampa Bay on Sunday.

Quincey has missed the last four games with the injury. "It’s responded every day and gotten better every day," said Quincey. "I am glad to be back." The injury ended Quincey's personal streak of 102 consecutive games played. The 29-year-old is good in his own end, but he doesn't bring much to the table offensively. He has one assist in 10 games.
Nov 9 - 10:29 AM

The Detroit Red Wings expect to get defenseman Kyle Quincey back for Sunday's game against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Quincey has one assist, six PIM, 12 SOG and 14 hits in 10 games so far this season. He had 13 points and 88 PIM (plus 88 hits and 109 blocked shots) last season, making him most appealing in formats with diverse stat categories.
Nov 8 - 1:43 PM

Kyle Quincey (ankle) will not be able to return on Friday.

It will be Quincey's fourth consecutive game on the sidelines. He might be available for Sunday's game though. He has an assist in 10 contests in 2014-15.
Nov 7 - 4:56 PM

Kyle Quincey (ankle) will miss Tuesday's contest.

Quincey has resumed practicing with the Red Wings, but he's not quite ready to play. This will be his second straight game on the sidelines.
Nov 4 - 12:08 PM

It's unclear if Kyle Quincey (ankle) will be available for Tuesday's game versus Ottawa.

He practiced on Monday after missing Sunday's game due to an ankle injury.
Nov 4 - 9:04 AM

Kyle Quincey (ankle) will not play Sunday against the Sabres.

This should come as no surprise as Quincey sustained an ankle injury Friday night which is usually a difficult injury for a hockey player to recover from quickly. Consider Quincey day-to-day for now. Brian Lashoff will dress in Quincey's place against Buffalo.
Nov 2 - 9:50 AM

Kyle Qunincey left Friday night's game against the Kings in the first period with an ankle injury.

He will be re-evaluated Saturday. Ankle injuries are tricky for hockey players so don't be surprised if Quincey is not able to play Sunday afternoon against Buffalo.
Nov 1 - 9:53 AM

The Detroit Red Wings signed Kyle Quincey to a two-year, $8.5 million contract on July 1.

That's about $1 million more than his previous two-year deal with the Red Wings. Quincey's offensive game seems like it's slipping a bit, but a decent depth option considering his solid PIM (88 PIM in 2013-14).
Jul 1 - 7:32 PM

There is a very good chance that Kyle Quincey has played his last game for the Red Wings.

The underrated defenseman is slated to become an unrestricted free agent on July 1st and every indication is that he will test the market. Given the offers rearguards have procurred in years' past, it is likely Quincey will find a better deal with another club. It is also unlikely the Red Wings will re-sign other UFAs Todd Bertuzzi, Daniel Cleary, David Legwand and Mikael Samuelsson.

Detroit coach Mike Babcock switched up his top two defenseman pairings for Saturday's game against Florida.

He split up the struggling pair of Kyle Quincey and Brendan Smith. Quincey played with Danny DeKeyser and registered an assist, while Smith skated alongside Niklas Kronwall and scored a goal. Quincey was minus 13 and Smith minus six going into Saturday's contest. For at least one game, the switch seems to have revitalized both Quincey and Smith. That said, we can't recommend either at this time.

Detroit Red Wings defenseman Kyle Quincey is at risk of a possible suspension after being ejected for a hit on Anaheim Ducks forward Ryan Getzlaf.

Quincey received a game misconduct and five-minute boarding major. He has one suspension (April 2012, one game) on his resume, so that works against his him. It helps that Getzlaf returned during Tuesday's contest, however.

Kyle Quincey registered his first goal of the season for Detroit in a 2-1 shootout loss to Tampa on Thursday.

The defensive-minded Quincey doesn't score many goals so each one he counts is something of an event. Gustav Nyquist and Johan Franzen drew helpers on the tally.

Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press thinks it would be in Detroit's best interest to try to trade Kyle Quincey.

His departure would free up a spot for when Dan DeKeyser is able to return from LTIR and Quincey probably won't have a spot in the lineup when Detroit's defense corps is back to full health. He has three assists and a minus-9 rating in 29 games this season. Quincey can also become an unrestricted free agent this summer.

Kyle Quincey missed Wednesday's practice due to "bumps and bruises."

Quincey is still expected to play Thursday, but we're going to err on the side of caution and list him as day-to-day. He has three assists and 14 penalty minutes in 22 games this season.
