DeKeyser tallied an assist in Tuesday's 2-1 win against the Lightning. After missing the first three games of the season, DeKeyser has played fairly well and shows no signs of his foot bothering him. While he's not a dynamic fantasy player, all three of his points have come in the last two games.
Dekeyser (foot) will enter the lineup Saturday against Montreal, Red Wings beat writer Bill Roose reports. Dekeyser will likely be paired with Mike Green as a more defensive complement to Green's offensive mindedness. That may result in a few more assists for Dekeyser, but not likely enough to warrant much fantasy attention. He has 25 career points in 156 games.
DeKeyser (foot) could return to the lineup for Saturday's game against the Canadiens, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports. DeKeyser skipped each of the first three games of the season because of the injury, but it appears a return is on the horizon. He recorded 31 points (two goals, 29 assists) last season, and could be in line for a decent point total again this season if he can remain healthy.
DeKeyser (foot) returned to practice Wednesday, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports. DeKeyser has been sidelined for the beginning of the season because of the foot issue, but is now about two weeks into his three-to-four week timetable. He'll likely need to get in multiple more practices to ensure his conditioning is up to snuff, but he could return closer to the front end of that timetable if all goes well.
DeKeyser (foot) skated before practice Monday, Ansar Kahn of MLive.com reports. DeKeyser was given an approximate timetable of three-to-four weeks Sept. 30 after straining a ligament in his foot, and he continues to recover from the issue. He took a big step Monday by skating on his own, but he'll need to rejoin practice at some point before eventually re-entering the lineup.
