DeKeyser (lower body) isn't in the projected lineup to face the Sabres on Saturday, Dave Hogg of NHL.com reports. Even if DeKeyser was healthy, he'd likely give way to young prospects that need the top-level experience. The Michigan native produced five goals and 15 assists to go along with a plus-2 rating over 52 games as part of the 2018-19 campaign.
DeKeyser (lower body) isn't in the projected lineup against the Penguins on Thursday. Even though the Red Wings have a chance to claim their longest winning streak in seven-plus season (seven games), DeKeyser will continue focusing on his recovery. The likes of Jake Chelios, Joe Hicketts and Dylan McIlrath will see additional minutes in DeKeyser's absence with just two games to go.
DeKeyser (lower body) will not suit up in Tuesday's home clash against the Penguins, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports. The 29-year-old departed Sunday's contest after logging just 12:23 of ice time. The Detriot-born player has notched 20 points in 65 games this campaign, and continues to be classified as day-to-day. In his stead, Joe Hicketts was called up on an emergency basis and DeKeyser's next chance to suit up is Thursday against those same Penguins.
DeKeyser (lower body) is day-to-day following his departure from Sunday's 6-3 win over the Bruins, Dana Wakiji of the Red Wings' official site reports. Head coach Jeff Blashill said the team would provide more details about the defenseman's injury Monday, but for now, considers DeKeyser day-to-day. The 29-year-old failed to find the scoresheet in 12+ minutes Sunday after registering three points in the two games prior, and DeKeyser will now hope he's healthy in time to face the Penguins on Tuesday, a team he owns six assists against in 14 career matchups.
DeKeyser scored a goal and an assist in Friday's 4-0 win over the Devils. The defenseman has been anything but consistent lately, DeKeyser has only chipped in points in three of the last 11 games -- two of them multi-point efforts -- but that's been enough to get him to the 20--point plateau for the fourth time in his career.
