Detroit Red Wings defenseman Kyle Quincey will remain in Edmonton with what could be a fractured cheek bone.

Quincey, 27, was hit by the puck in the third period of Friday’s 3-2 overtime win against the Edmonton Oilers, as per Ansar Khan of MLive.com.

“Docs want him to stay here; they don’t want any pressure, so they’ll get him looked at,” Detroit’s head coach Mike Babcock told MLive.com.

“There’s no X-ray, I can’t believe that.”

This could perhaps open the door of opportunity for defenseman Ian White, who was again scratched from the Red Wings lineup.

The veteran blue liner has expressed frustration with being kept out of the lineup – playing only twice in the team’s last 10 games – while stressing the importance of staying positive at the same time.

In the final year of a two-year, $5.75 million contract with the Red Wings, White insists that he hasn’t asked for a trade out of Detroit.

The Red Wings are in Vancouver Saturday to play the Canucks.
