Just In: Quincey may need surgery on ankle

As the injury bug continues to slowly work its way through the Detroit Red Wings’ locker room, it’s been revealed today that defenseman Kyle Quincey may end up needing surgery on his ankle. He’ll be seeing a doctor within a week to determine if the surgery is necessary.

Quincey played all of the 2014-2015 NHL season with bone chips in his other ankle, and took anti-inflammatory medications and painkillers to work his way through the season, eventually getting the necessary surgery to remove the fragments after the Red Wings were knocked out of the post-season.

Quincey said that the pain started the first day of training camp this year, and he’s been playing through the pain since. He hasn’t been on-ice since October 23rd.

Six weeks will be a long time to go without Quincey, who was one of the top two defensemen last season for Detroit, even playing with chronic pain all year. In seven games played this season, he’s notched a goal, 3 points, and is a plus-1.
