Quincey dished an assist for the second straight game Wednesday, recording a point in a 3-1 loss to the Lightning. Quincey has missed more than half the season with ankle and concussion issues, but has been decently productive when in the lineup. He has five points in 15 games after not scoring more than 18 in the previous three seasons.
Quincey (ankle) will return to the lineup against the Kings on Monday, per Red Wings GM Ken Holland, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports. As Khan points out, Quincey won't return as soon as Sunday in Anaheim in order for the defenseman to avoid playing in back-to-back contests. But to make room for Quincey on the roster, the Red Wings have waived Jakub Kindl, per Elliotte Friedman of Hockey Night in Canada.
Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill said Quincey (ankle) will return at some point during their six-game road trip that ends Jan. 14, but won't be back Thursday evening against the Sharks, Dana Wakiji of FOX Sports Detroit reports. After Thursday, Detroit has three games remaining on this latest road trip and it sounds like he'll be ready to play at some point during that stretch. Alexei Marchenko, for one, has started to pick up plenty of minutes on the blue line with Quincey out, logging at least 20 minutes of ice time in each of the last two contests.
Quincey (ankle) hopes to rejoin the lineup for Thursday's game against the Sharks, Brendan Savage of MLive.com reports. This news essentially rules him out for Monday's contest, but it certainly appears as if a return is just around the corner. The team should provide an update on his status confirming whether or not he will return Thursday.
Quincey (ankle) is drawing closer to a return but will not be ready Saturday against the Sabres, according to Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports. Based on the report, it appears that Quincey is questionable for Monday's road contest in New Jersey. It's been a troubling campaign for the 30-year-old defenseman as concussion and ankle injuries have limited him to seven games.
