Newark, NJ - The New Jersey Devils today agreed to terms with defenseman Kyle Quincey on a one-year, one-way $1,250,000 contract. The announcement was made by Devils' Executive Vice President/General Manager Ray Shero.
Quincey, 31, enters his ninth full NHL season after spending the last four-plus seasons with the Detroit Red Wings. He came to Detroit from Colorado, via Tampa Bay, when he was traded twice in the same day, February 21, 2012. Quincey spent three years in Colorado (2009-10 through 2011-12) and skated for Los Angeles during the 2008-09 season. He spent his first three professional seasons (2005-06 through 2007-08) with Detroit and the club's AHL affiliate in Grand Rapids.
In 495 career regular-season NHL games, he scored 30 goals and notched 110 assists for 140 points while accumulating 469 penalty minutes. The left-shooting rearguard has added eight assists and 38 PIM in 54 Stanley Cup Playoff Games. Quincey was originally Detroit's second pick (fourth round) and the 132nd overall selection in the 2003 NHL Draft.
The 6-2, 215lb. native of Kitchener, Ontario played three seasons of junior hockey between London and Mississauga of the OHL. He has OHL regular-season career totals of 35 goals, 68 assists for 103 points and 327 penalty minutes in 189 games. He represented Canada at the 2012 IIHF World Championships.
