Kyle Quincey is expected to be a healthy scratch in Thursday's game against the Canadiens.

Mike Reilly will slot back into the lineup for the Wild. Quincey has three assists in 12 games this season. He isn't worth owning in any fantasy format.

The Minnesota Wild will scratch Kyle Quincey for their matchup with the Montreal Canadiens tonight.

Quincey will sit for the second straight game. He is the only healthy scratch listed. Zach Parise (back), Charlie Coyle (fibula), and Landon Ferraro (hip) will also miss the game due to their respective injuries.

Kyle Quincey will be a healthy scratch in Tuesday's game against the Winnipeg Jets.

Oct 31 - 7:52 PM

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.

Kyle Quincey has inked a one-year, $1.25 million contract with Minnesota.

Quincey recorded 15 points, a plus-4 rating and 51 penalty minutes in 73 games with the New Jersey Devils and Columbus Blue Jackets last season. The Wild were seeking a veteran to pair with Gustav Olofsson or Mike Reilly next season and Quincey fits the bill.
Jul 1 - 3:48 PM

Kyle Quincey will be in the lineup on Tuesday against Pittsburgh.

Rookie defenseman Zach Werenski is out due to facial fractures and Scott Harrington will be scratched, so Quincey and Markus Nutivaara will make their series debuts. Quincey has 54 games of NHL playoff experience under his belt. He posted 15 points and 51 penalty minutes in 73 matches between New Jersey and Columbus during the 2016-17 campaign.
Apr 18 - 2:26 PM

Kyle Quincey may be in the lineup for Game 4 against Pittsburgh on Tuesday night.

The Blue Jackets lost Zach Werenski for the remainder of the playoffs, so Quincey or rookie Markus Nutivaara will probably get into the lineup for the first time in the series.
Apr 17 - 3:40 PM

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.

The Columbus Blue Jackets acquired Kyle Quincey from New Jersey in exchange for Dalton Prout ahead of the trade deadline on Wednesday.

The 31-year-old defender has posted four goals and 12 points along with 39 PIMs, 70 blocks and 71 hits. He's also averaged 18:38 of ice time per game. He figures to be more a depth option for Columbus.
Mar 1 - 2:05 PM

Kyle Quincey will be a healthy scratch on Monday.

This is probably a case of the Devils protecting a possible trade chip. If Quincey played on Monday and got hurt, then New Jersey would miss out on the pick(s) or prospect(s) they could potentially get for him. John Moore will draw into the lineup.
Feb 27 - 11:29 AM

Kyle Quincey will be back from an upper-body injury when the Devils host Ottawa on Tuesday.

He has missed the last six contests. Quincey is slated to join Damon Severson on the third pairing.
