Kyle Quincey: Inks overseas deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Quincey agreed to terms on a one-year contract with HIFK Helsinki (Finland) on Tuesday.

Quincey spent much of the 2017-18 campaign sitting in the Minnesota press box, as he saw action in a mere 18 contests. Even when he was in the lineup, the defender was limited to just 14:17 of ice time per game. The move to Finland likely marks the end of the 33-year-old's playing days in the NHL. If that's the case, he will end his career with 586 games, in which he tallied 36 goals, 122 assists and 548 PIM.

Wild's Kyle Quincey: Placed on waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Quincey was designated for waivers Wednesday.

Reading between the lines, the move to waive Quincey could mean Jared Spurgeon (groin) is available for Thursday's tilt against the Golden Knights. It also means that Ryan Murphy could get an extended look in the lineup while Quincey heads down to AHL Iowa -- assuming he goes unclaimed.

Wild's Kyle Quincey: Healthy scratch Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Quincey was a healthy scratch in Saturday's win over Philadelphia.

Quincey has been alternating being a healthy scratch with Gustav Olofsson, but he's been the odd man out the past two games. His playing time will likely continue to be inconsistent.

Wild's Kyle Quincey: Back in fold
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Quincey, whose absence from the past two games can be attributed to a minor (undisclosed) injury, will return Saturday for a home game against the Blackhawks, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.

According to Russo, Gustav Olofsson will take a seat so that Quincey can draw into this next contest. Quincey remains a no-frills fantasy option having picked up three assists and a plus-3 rating over nine games and 15:35 of average ice time -- that's nothing to brag to your friends about if you own him, but he gets the job done for the Wild.

Wild's Kyle Quincey: Gets second assist of season Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Quincey had an assist and two hits in 16:21 of ice time in Thursday's win over Chicago.

Quincey begins the season in the third defensive pairing with Mike Reilly. He's also getting significant time on the penalty kill unit.

Wild's Kyle Quincey: Joins Wild on one-year pact
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Quincey signed a one-year, $1.25 million contract with the Wild on Saturday, TSN reports.

Minnesota becomes Quincey's third team since the Ontario native logged 47 games with the Red Wings in 2015-16; he split the most recent campaign between the Blue Jackets and Devils, combining for just 15 points in 73 contests. Quincey is capable of logging a decent amount of minutes each game -- he averaged 18:38 of ice time with the Devils last year -- but he's not much of a fantasy contributor these days, particularly with injuries getting in the way.

Blue Jackets' Kyle Quincey: Gets back onto scoresheet Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Quincey picked up a goal with a plus-1 rating, a minor penalty and a hit in Sunday's 3-2 loss against the Capitals.

Quincey has managed just six goals and 15 points this season, but two goals and three points have come over the past five outings. Despite the slight uptick in production, he still cannot be trusted outside of deeper fantasy pools.

Blue Jackets' Kyle Quincey: Will ride pine Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Quincey will watch Tuesday's game against the Devils from the press box, per Tom Reed of The Columbus Dispatch.

Quincey faced his former Devils team Sunday, picking up four hits with two PIM and a plus-1 rating, but he'll reportedly give way to rookie Markus Nutivaara in this next contest. However, neither player carries much weight in the fantasy realm, as they figure to continue rotating on the third pair with Ryan Murray.

Blue Jackets' Kyle Quincey: Heads to Columbus in one-for-one swap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Devils traded Quincey to the Blue Jackets on Wednesday in exchange for fellow defenseman Dalton Prout, The Columbus Dispatch reports.

Quincey will settle in with his fifth different NHL organization since entering the league with Detroit in 2005-06. Fortunately for him, he's been acquired by a playoff contender, though it comes with the tradeoff of learning a new system. Quincey is perpetually banged up, and his output of 12 points in 53 games with the Devils this season hasn't caused a stir in the fantasy realm, so it's quite reasonable to leave him on the waiver wire despite the change of landscape.

Devils' Kyle Quincey: Sitting out Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Quincey will be held out of Monday's tilt with Montreal, Mike Morreale of NHL.com reports.

The seasoned defender has reportedly been the subject of various trade discussions ahead of Wednesday's deadline, and the Devils will protect their asset by keeping him out of the lineup. New Jersey next plays Thursday in Washington, so whether Quincey's a member of the Devils or not will be resolved by then. John Moore will take Quincey's place in the lineup.

Devils' Kyle Quincey: Back in action Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Quincey (upper body) will make his return to the lineup Tuesday against Ottawa, Andrew Gross of The Record reports.

The veteran defenseman has been sidelined for the team's last six games, and will skate with Damon Severson on the second pairing. Quincey has never provided much offense, but is a reliable defender who isn't afraid to sacrifice his body, as evidenced by his 71 hits and 69 blocked shots through 51 games in 2016-17.

Devils' Kyle Quincey: Remains sidelined Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Quincey (upper body) will not suit up for Sunday's road game against the Islanders, Andrew Gross of The Record reports.

Quincey will miss his sixth straight game and remains without a clear timetable for return. He doesn't do a whole lot of scoring from the blue line anyhow -- he was riding a four-game point-less streak before going down with the injury -- so his continued absence isn't likely to affect the majority of fantasy owners.

Devils' Kyle Quincey: Out against Islanders
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Quincey (upper-body) is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Islanders, Andrew Gross of The Record reports.

The Devils are right back in action Sunday against these same Islanders, so Quincey won't have to wait long for his next chance to return. Fortunately, the recent returns of John Moore and Jon Merrill mean New Jersey should be able to manage without Quincey for at least one more game.

Devils' Kyle Quincey: Placed on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Quincey (upper body) was placed on injured reserve Thursday.

The veteran defenseman had already been ruled out for Thursday's game against Ottawa, but because his injured reserve status is retroactive to Feb. 4, he will be eligible to play Saturday against the Islanders. Quincey has been skating since Tuesday, so this roster move isn't an indication that there has been a setback in his recovery.

Devils' Kyle Quincey: Ruled out Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Quincey (upper body) will not be available against Ottawa on Thursday, Andrew Gross of The Record reports.

Quincey has missed New Jersey's last three outings, but he's resumed skating, which is definitely a step in the right direction. Even once he's cleared, there's no guarantee the 31-year-old will be back on the ice with Jon Merrill and John Moore both back to 100 percent. The veteran Quincey would likely need to beat out both Seth Helgeson and Steve Santini for a spot in the game-day lineup.

Devils' Kyle Quincey: Resumes skating Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Quincey (upper body) was on the ice for Tuesday's morning skate, Andrew Gross of The Record reports.

Quincey's return to the ice is certainly a step in the right direction, but the 31-year-old blueliner will likely need to log several more full practices before returning to New Jersey's lineup. His forthcoming return to action will strengthen the Devils' depth at defense, but it won't mean much to fantasy owners, as his meager offensive production -- 12 points in 51 games this season -- keeps him off the fantasy radar in most formats.

Devils' Kyle Quincey: Does not play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Quincey (upper body) was a scratch from Sunday's 4-1 loss to the Sharks.

Despite six days to rest up during the Devils' bye week, Qunicey was not able to get healthy in time and sat out for a second straight game. What's more, the 31-year-old did not practice Saturday, meaning the injury is still lurking and could keep him out for an even longer period.

Devils' Kyle Quincey: Ruled out Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Quincey will not play in Monday's game against the Sabres due to an upper-body injury, Andrew Gross of The Record reports.

Quincey has seen a rise in ice time recently, but hasn't seen much time on the man advantage. He's tallied 12 points (four goals, eight assists) through 51 contests this season, but provides an increased value in leagues that award hits (71) and blocked shots (69). His absence Monday will leave the Devils a bit shorthanded along the blue line, as the team boasts just five other healthy defenseman. John Moore (concussion) was a full participant at practice Monday, so it's possible he will be activated and will return to the lineup in Quincey's place.

Devils' Kyle Quincey: Scores versus Canucks in overtime win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Quincey picked up a goal and two shots on goal in a 2-1 overtime victory over the Canucks on Sunday.

It was just Quincey's second game with multiple shots on goal this month, and his first goal since Nov. 17. After posting two goals, five points and a plus-7 rating in November, Quincey had just three assists and a minus-4 rating in December. Maybe this goal, which was his first point of January and pulled him back up to an even rating, will get him going again.

Devils' Kyle Quincey: Quietly producing for fantasy owners
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Quincey picked up a pair of assists in Tuesday's 3-2 win over Vancouver.

It hasn't happened in exciting fashion, but Quincey's quietly put together a solid 12-game stretch from the blue line, netting eight points and a plus-5 rating. That's brought his season point total (nine) just two shy of the meager 11 he managed in 47 games for Detroit last year. However, it's hard to count on Quincey's production to continue, considering it's nearly all come at even strength and the Devils aren't the sort of offensive powerhouse that can carry a mediocre 31-year-old defenseman to real fantasy relevance.
