Kyle Quincey has signed with the Central Hockey League's Denver Cutthroats.
Quincey played in Colorado before he was traded to Detroit last season. He still spent his summer in Denver and did some training with the University of Denver. "Good friend of mine, and a real community-oriented guy. He wanted to give back to the community," Cutthroats coach Derek Armstrong said of Quincey. "When I met him he was a kid in the NHL and we sat next to each other in the locker room in L.A. He told me last summer if this thing happened (NHL lockout) he would like to play for me. Of course, he wants to stay in shape and be ready when the (NHL) season starts, but it was really about giving back to the community and believing in what we're doing for the community here." The Cutthroats are a new team that will play their inaugural game on Oct. 19.
