He is expected to miss six weeks recovering from the procedure.
Quincey, 30, played in the Red Wings’ first seven games of the season before taking a hit to the head from Calgary’s Sam Bennett. He hasn’t been on the ice since October 23. While he passed concussion protocol, his ankle issue became severe enough that surgery is required.
In May, Quincey had surgery on his left ankle to remove bone spurs. A similar issue was discovered with his right ankle during training camp but he had been playing through it.
