A couple of veterans are unlikely to be back with the Detroit Red Wings next season.

GM Ken Holland told the Detroit Free Press that he told “Brad Richards and Kyle Quincey that I definitely won’t sign them before July 1, if at all.”

Richards, 36, and Quincey, 30, are both pending unrestricted free agents.

Richards had 10 goals and 18 asssits in 2015-16, his first season with the Wings after winning the Stanley Cup with Chicago.

Quincey indicated recently that he’d like to re-sign, but his spot could be filled by the younger, cheaper Xavier Ouellet.
