Quincey was originally drafted by the Red Wings in 2003. He was claimed off waivers from the Wings by Los Angeles at the start of the 2008-09 season and then traded to the Colorado Avalanche the following summer.
The Lightning acquired Quincey for forward Steve Downey earlier on Tuesday before flipping him to Detroit.
Quincey's $3.125 million cap hit easily fits for the Red Wings, who could take on over $20 million in contracts for the rest of the season. He will be a restricted free agent this summer.
Piche was essentially a throw-in on the deal, as Detroit already had 50 players under contract and could not take on one more without moving someone. He'll be an unrestricted free agent this summer.
