The Denver Cutthroats announced today Detroit Red Wings defenseman Kyle Quincey has joined the team's roster for the start of the 2012-13 Central Hockey League season.
Quincey played each of the past three years in Denver for the Colorado Avalanche before being traded from Tampa Bay to Detroit in exchange for a 2012 First Round Pick. The Red Wings drafted Quincey in the fourth round of the 2003 National Hockey League Entry Draft.
"After spending some time with Mr. Hayes, I realize we have a common desire to further the development of youth hockey in Colorado which is a primary focus of the Cutthroats," said Quincey. "Being able to do that while playing for a coach who has helped me throughout my career, and staying home in Denver, is an ideal situation for me considering the circumstances."
