Update: Quincey reportedly gets $7.55 million over the two years of deal

DETROIT – Wings general manager Ken Holland was right when he said he was close to getting a deal done with restricted free agent defensemen Kyle Quincey.

Both sides agreed to a two-year deal to remain with the team worth $7.55 million over the term of the deal, which is an average salary hit of $3.775 million.

Quincey filed for arbitration and his hearing was scheduled for July 25.

Quincey, 26, made $3.25 million a year ago and the Wings were hoping to get him at a modest raise.

If the defenseman had inked a one-year deal he would have become an unrestricted free agent after the season.
