Red Wings, Quincey agree to 2-year deal

Detroit, MI (Sports Network) - The Detroit Red Wings and defenseman Kyle Quincey agreed to terms on a two-year contract on Wednesday.

The 26-year-old Ontario native split last season between Colorado and Detroit, tallying seven goals with 26 points in 72 games. He was acquired from the Avs in late February.

Quincey, new in the Motor City, was suspended one game without pay by the NHL for charging Florida Panthers forward Tomas Kopecky in early April -- an infraction which also cost him nearly $17,000 in salary.

In 257 NHL appearances since 2005 with the Red Wings, Kings and Avalanche, the rearguard has totaled 18 goals and 95 points.
