Playing career

Quincey was drafted 132nd overall by the Red Wings in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft.

In early October, 2003, Quincey was traded from the London Knights to the Mississauga IceDogs in a blockbuster deal for star Rob Shremp. Quincey helped the IceDogs to the OHL final in 2004; the IceDogs were swept in four games by the Guelph Storm.

After the 2004–05 season, Quincey finished third in voting for the OHL's top defenceman award.

Quincey scored his first NHL goal in the last game of the Red Wings' 2006–07 regular season in a 7–2 win over the Chicago Blackhawks on April 7, 2007. He scored in the second period against Patrick Lalime which turned out to be the final Red Wing goal of the regular season. After injuries to defensemen Niklas Kronwall and Mathieu Schneider, Quincey was thrust into play just as the playoffs had begun. He first played in Game 6, an overtime victory for Detroit against the Calgary Flames to move on to the second round against the San Jose Sharks. The Red Wings eventually lost to the Anaheim Ducks in 6 games in the Conference finals.

Kyle Quincey was called up to play 6 games for Detroit in 2008. During the 2008 playoff Quincey was on the practice roster for the whole playoffs. He was awarded a Stanley Cup ring, and the Red Wings included him on the Stanley Cup winning picture. Quincey did not qualify to be inscribed on the Stanley Cup.

On October 13, 2008, Quincey was acquired by the Los Angeles Kings through waivers. He quickly became an important part of a young Kings defensive corps, especially early in the season due to the injury of Jack Johnson. Playing on the power play and penalty killing units, Quincey continues to be a major part of the Kings push for their first playoff appearance since 2002.

Quincey hails from Orangeville, Ontario, and cites former Toronto Maple Leafs forward Bill Berg as one of his childhood idols. "When I was young, my dad took me to see a Kings game in Toronto. I was watching Wayne Gretzky, but my dad said to me, ‘watch the way Bill Berg plays. Look at him working in the corners, not being afraid to get his nose dirty, and doing all of the little things.’ Berg became one of my favorite players to watch after that because of the effort he put, and how he never took a night off. I feel like I have taken a similar approach to working hard and being confident to do whatever is asked of me.

On July 3, Quincey was traded, along with defenseman Tom Preissing and a 2010 5th-round pick to the Colorado Avalanche in exchange for left winger Ryan Smyth.
