NHL Trade Rumors: Lightning Flip Kyle Quincey Almost Immediately To Red Wings For 1st Round Pick, According To Report

The Colorado Avalanche traded defenseman Kyle Quincey to the Tampa Bay Lightning, and almost immediately Quincey was then flipped to the Detroit Red Wings for Detroit's first-round pick in the June entry draft, reports TSN's Bob McKenzie.

Sebastien Piche will reportedly head to Tampa Bay as part of the deal.

The Avalanche, then, traded a top 4 defenseman for a winger who immediately goes to one of the team's main rivals for a low-end first round draft pick and a minor leaguer. The Avalanche cleared money in the deal since Downie's cap hit was $1.85 million while Quincey's came in at $3.125 million.

Will the Avalanche be making any more moves before the trade deadline?
