The Detroit Red Wings and Kyle Quincey were scheduled to go to arbitration as the team and restricted free agent couldn’t reach an agreement on an extension. That was until Wednesday.

Quincey avoided seeing the Wings in front of a mediator by agreeing to a new two-year contract worth $7.55 million, as reported by Helene St. James of the Detroit Free-Press.

Re-signing Quincey was never really an issue, it was certainly expected given his restricted free-agent status. That doesn’t mean it wasn’t vital for the Wings to get it done. After seeing Nicklas Lidstrom retire, Brad Stuart heading to San Jose and Ryan Suter passing on the Red Wings’ offer in favor of the Minnesota Wild, it was pretty imperative to make sure Quincey was back in the rotation.
