      Red Wings' Danny DeKeyser: To make season debut

      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 Notches Two Helpers For Detroit

      News: Danny DeKeyser picked up two assists Thursday in a 6-4 loss to San Jose.
      Analysis: Danny DeKeyser had missed the scoresheet in four straight -- with no shots in three of those -- so it's nice to see him get back on the horse. The 25-year-old hasn't broken out as expected this year, with a modest 27 points in 71 games, but he's been a reliable member of the Detroit blue line and could still find another gear offensively in coming seasons.
    • Wings' DeKeyser Picks Up Assist

      News: Danny DeKeyser notched an assist in Sunday's win over the Penguins.
      Analysis: Danny DeKeyser hasn't exactly taken a quantum leap forward in his second NHL season, but with assists in each of his last two games, he's established a new career mark of 25 points. He had a reputation as a puck mover coming out of Western Michigan University as an undrafted free agent, and he's mostly lived up to that billing so far. If the 25-year-old notices some expected improvement with his low 2.6 percent shooting rate in 2015-16, he could make the jump to 35-to-40 points and goal production in the high single digits.
