Quincey expected back, Dekeyser to make NHL debut

DENVER -- The Detroit Red Wings will have a different look on defense Friday night when they meet the Colorado Avalanche at Pepsi Center. Kyle Quincey is expected to play after missing nine games with a fractured cheekbone, and Danny Dekeyser will make his NHL debut after playing three seasons at Western Michigan University.

Quincey, 27, who was injured in a March 15 game against the Edmonton Oilers, has one goal and one assist in 26 games. Dekeyser, 22, signed a two-year contract with the Red Wings on March 30. He was Western Michigan's captain this season and had two goals and 13 assists in 35 games.

Quote of the Day

I don't have a crystal ball. Predicting is a real complicated thing. If we stay healthy, have enough depth and get the good goaltending we think we're going to have, you can go all the way. But a lot of things have to happen. There's going to be a lot of teams that think the same thing. Everyone made deals. We're all are optimistic about where we'll end up.
