Khan: Red Wings may have caught a ‘break’ with Kyle Quincey

Excellent news regarding Red Wings defenseman Kyle Quincey from MLive's Ansar Khan:

Update: Khan has news on the Mikael Samuelsson front:

Detroit Red Wings defenseman Kyle Quincey doesn't require surgery for his fractured left cheek bone and could return in two weeks, general manager Ken Holland said.

Quincey has been cleared to start doing off-ice workouts and should be back on the ice with the team when it returns home following this four-game West Coast trip.

The club originally feared Quincey would be out four-to-six weeks after he was struck by a puck that rode up his stick late in the third period of a 3-2 overtime win in Edmonton on March 15. Quincey has one goal, one assist and a plus-8 rating in 26 games.
Holland also said right wing Mikael Samuelsson (broken left index finger) is expected to return for Sunday's game against Chicago at Joe Louis Arena. Samuelsson has been idled since Feb. 19, when he was hit by a shot from Ian White during the morning skate in Nashville.

It happened two days after he returned to action following a lengthy absence due to a pulled groin. Samuelsson has appeared in only three games.

The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related. I offer biased, perhaps unprofessional-at-times and verbose coverage of my favorite team, their prospects and developmental affiliates. I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
