Kyle Quincey Returns To The D
In what was essentially a three team deal, the Red Wings have aquired Kyle Quincey from Colorado via Tampa Bay. The Lightning and GM Steve Yzerman had dealt Steve Downie (who needed a change of scenery) to Colorado for Quincey earlier this afternoon.
The Red Wings gave up their 2012 first round pick and prospect Sebastien Piche. Quincey, who will be a restricted free agent at season’s end, has 23 points in 54 games this season with Colorado. He broke into the NHL with the Red Wings in 2005.
