Red Wings' Quincey to miss 4-6 weeks

Detroit Red Wings general manager Ken Holland told MLive.com that defenseman Kyle Quincey will miss 4-6 weeks with multiple fractures of his cheek bone.

Quincy was injured in the third period of the Red Wings' game Friday against the Edmonton Oilers, when he blocked a shot with his stick, but the puck bounced up and hit him in the face.

Holland added that surgery to repair the injury will be made next week.

In 26 games this season, Quincey has a goal and an assist while playing an average of 19:11 per game. His plus-8 rating is third on the team.

Quote of the Day

I'm hoping Bob [Murray] didn't go out and get Dany Heatley just to get someone. I'm sure he's excited and motivated.
