Kyle Quincey Arbitration Date Set For July 25

On Tuesday afternoon, it was announced that the salary arbitration hearing between the Detroit Red Wings and restricted free-agent defenseman Kyle Quincey has been set for July 25.

The two sides will still be able to negotiate a new deal prior to the hearing, but if they are unable to come to an agreement, both sides will make arguments to the arbitrator as to what they believe Quincey should make next season.

After hearing the arguments, the arbitrator will give his opinion on what the salary should be and the Red Wings will have the option of retaining Quincey's services and choosing to walk away from the proposal, which would allow the player to become an unrestricted free agent.

Detroit has to make an offer that is at least 85 percent of Quincey's salary in his previous contract, which means that the player potentially could leave the hearing making less money than he made during the 2011-12 season.
