Quincey files for arbitration

Kyle Quincey

DETROIT – Defenseman Kyle Quincey beat the deadline to file salary arbitration against the Red Wings on Thursday.

Quincey, 26, was one of 16 players who filed for salary arbitration before Thursday’s 5 p.m. ET deadline, and the lone Red Wing to do so. By filing for arbitration, the other 29 NHL clubs cannot give Quincey an offer sheet.

Both the Wings and Quincey will submit a salary figure, and an arbitrator will decide on either number or somewhere between. The NHL will hold arbitration hearings from July 20 to August 4 in Toronto.

However, Thursday's filing doesn't preclude the Wings and Quincey from still reaching a deal on their own before a hearing date.

Quincey recorded career-high totals in goals (7), power-play goals (4), and penalty minutes (89), while splitting time last season between Colorado and Detroit. In 257 career games, he has produced 18 goals with 77 assists.

The Wings exposed the Kitchner, Ontario, native on waivers before the start of the 2008-09 season where he was claimed by the Los Angeles Kings. The Wings drafted Quincey in the fourth-round of the 2003 draft.

This is the second time that Wings general manager Ken Holland has had an arbitration hearing in his time with the organization. Three years ago, an arbitrator granted Jiri Hudler a two-year contract worth $5.75 million.

Previously, the last Wings' player to have an arbitration hearing was forward Ray Sheppard, in 1995.

Detroit currently has five defensemen – Niklas Kronwall, Jonathan Ericsson, Ian White, Jakub Kindl and Brendan Smith – under contract for the upcoming 2012-13 season.

Quincey made $3.25 million last season.
