Quincey out 4-6 weeks with fractured cheek

A Red Wings blue line that’s been hit hard by injuries this season has been hit again. According to general manager Ken Holland, defenseman Kyle Quincey has multiple fractures of his cheek bone and will be out four to six weeks (per MLive.com’s Ansar Khan).

Quincey was struck by the puck in the third period of Friday’s 3-2 overtime win against the Edmonton Oilers.

The 27-year-old’s injury allowed veteran defenseman Ian White to draw back into the lineup for Saturday’s 5-2 win over the Canucks.

Depth on defense. Pretty important in the NHL.
