Quincey will jump right into power play with White

DETROIT — As Wings coach Mike Babcock put it, “Nick Lidstrom will either play with (Niklas) Kronwall or (Ian) White so that means (Kyle) Quincey will either play with Kronwall or White.

That’s how the Wings’ blue line with look after they traded for Quincey on Tuesday.

“Getting a chance on the power play to play with these great players is a huge opportunity for me,” Quincey said. “I’m really excited for tonight.

“I was fortunate to be here for the Stanley Cup run, watching these guys and learning from guys like Cheli and Schneids and Nick and Kronner, all those guys, it meant so much to me, and getting an opportunity to come back was so awesome and I’m looking forward to it,” Quincey said.

Quincey will be paired with Jonathan Ericsson for 5 on 5.

“I’ve played with Big E in Grand Rapids,” Quincey said. “Hopefully it’s a pretty seamless transition.”

Babcock also said Quincey will be getting time killing penalties.
