Top Danny DeKeyser News

  • Red Wings' Danny DeKeyser: Sneaks in secondary helper

    DeKeyser produced an assist in Saturday's 7-2 loss to the Penguins.

    Aside from the occasional assist and blocked shot -- he's collected 10 and 98 of those respectively -- DeKeyser has failed to put up meaningful stats in his 10th NHL campaign. In all likelihood, the Wings let him walk as an unrestricted free agent this summer.

  • Red Wings' Danny DeKeyser: Ready to rock

    DeKeyser (undisclosed) has been activated off injured reserve and will play Wednesday versus the Rangers.

    DeKeyser has been out for three weeks, so he may be eased back into action, though he's still expected to play a top-four role. Jordan Oesterle will exit the lineup to make room for DeKeyser, who has six assists, 50 shots on net, 80 blocked shots and a minus-12 rating in 43 appearances this season.

  • Red Wings' Danny DeKeyser: May be ready to return

    DeKeyser (undisclosed) could rejoin the lineup for Wednesday's matchup with the Rangers, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.

    DeKeyser has been sidelined for three weeks with an undisclosed injury, but it appears as though he may finally be ready to return against New York. Confirmation on his status versus the Rangers should surface prior to puck drop.

  • Red Wings' Danny DeKeyser: Designated for IR

    DeKeyser was placed on injured reserve Tuesday with an undisclosed injury.

    The move comes as a bit of a surprise considering DeKeyser was waived by the team Monday, but he apparently sustained an undisclosed injury since then. Still, the fact that DeKeyser cleared waivers likely means he'll be headed down to AHL Grand Rapids.

  • Red Wings' Danny DeKeyser: On waivers

    DeKeyser was placed on waivers Monday, per Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet.

    DeKeyser has averaged 18:32 of ice time and distributed six assists over 43 appearances this season. The 32-year-old will likely be reassigned to AHL Grand Rapids if he clears waivers.

  • Red Wings' Danny DeKeyser: Mixed results Saturday

    DeKeyser registered an assist but was minus-3 in Saturday's 10-7 loss to the Maple Leafs.

    DeKeyser's role continues to diminish as injuries have gotten in the way and the Wings rely more on the likes of Marc Staal and Nick Leddy at left defense.

  • Red Wings' Danny DeKeyser: Offensive production halted

    DeKeyser is currently listed as a top-pairing defenseman, but he has only three points -- all assists -- through 34 games this season.

    It's been tough sledding for DeKeyser over the past couple of seasons. The veteran rearguard has been bogged down by lower-body and back injuries, plus he missed time in COVID-19 protocols early on this campaign. DeKeyser's top defensive assignment with prized rookie Moritz Seider looks good on paper, but he has evolved into more of a stay-at-home type. It's safe to pass over him in fantasy leagues.

  • Red Wings' Danny DeKeyser: Secures helper in big loss

    DeKeyser registered an assist Sunday, but the Red Wings suffered a 5-1 loss to the Bruins.

    Points have been few and far between for DeKeyser, as the veteran blueliner has just three helpers comprising his total through 27 games this season. Still, he capitalized on an offensive opportunity while sharing the ice with captain Dylan Larkin and Tyler Bertuzzi, who was Detroit's lone goal scorer against the Bruins.

  • Red Wings' Danny DeKeyser: Performs reasonably well Friday

    DeKeyser managed a plus-1 rating in Friday's 7-3 loss to the Avalanche.

    While DeKeyser hasn't done nearly enough to draw attention in fantasy leagues, it was good to see him rebound in this one. After all, the blueliner had a minus-2 rating against the Predators and he was minus-3 versus the Blues, with his poor play negatively contributing to a pair of team losses heading into Friday's clash with the Avalanche. The Wings have had DeKeyser on the books for a whopping $5 million AAV since the start of the 2016-17 campaign, but he'll almost assuredly walk next summer as an unrestricted free agent. He's managed only two assists through 22 games this season, albeit with 17 hits and 44 blocked shots.

  • Red Wings' Danny DeKeyser: Sitting as healthy scratch

    DeKeyser will be a healthy scratch Saturday versus the Islanders.

    DeKeyser cleared COVID-19 protocols Friday, but there was no indication he needed to work on fitness, so this is just a healthy scratch. The blueliner will have a chance to return Tuesday versus the Predators. Jordan Oesterle remains in the Red Wings' lineup.

  • Red Wings' Danny DeKeyser: Clears COVID-19 protocols

    The Red Wings removed DeKeyser (COVID-19) from virus-related protocols Friday.

    The veteran defenseman missed four games while in COVID-19 protocols. DeKeyser has logged a pair of assists while averaging 19:42 of ice time in 19 games this season and figures to be back in the lineup Saturday against the Islanders.

  • Red Wings' Danny DeKeyser: Held out of practice

    DeKeyser (COVID-19 protocols) missed practice Friday, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.

    The Red Wings have not disclosed the results of DeKeyser's test, so it's tough to gauge how much time the defenseman will miss. Dan Renouf is projected to the occupy the left defenseman spot on the third pairing for Saturday's clash with the Sabres.

  • Red Wings' Danny DeKeyser: Enters virus protocols

    DeKeyser (COVID-19 protocols) will not play Wednesday versus the Blues.

    DeKeyser will need to undergo further testing, and if he's confirmed positive, he'll be forced to miss 10 days. Marc Staal (illness) or Dan Renouf will take his place in the lineup Wednesday.

  • Red Wings' Danny DeKeyser: Watches from press box

    DeKeyser was a healthy scratch Thursday evening when the Red Wings suffered a 5-1 loss to the Bruins, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.

    DeKeyser registered an assist in the season opener only to be held off the scoresheet entirely in the nine games that followed. The Wings aren't relying on the Detroit native nearly as much as they did under the direction of GM Ken Holland, who is now an executive for the Oilers, and a lot it has to do with the emergence of phenom Moritz Seider and the offseason addition of veteran rearguard Nick Leddy.

  • Red Wings' Danny DeKeyser: In contention for Masterton Trophy

    DeKeyser has been nominated for the Masterton Trophy by the Red Wings, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.

    DeKeyser is in contention for the Masterton hardware due to his perseverance in returning from back surgery and nearly playing a full season in 2021. The Detroit native potted four goals, eight assists, 44 hits and 81 blocked shots to complement a plus-3 rating through 47 games.

  • Red Wings' Danny DeKeyser: Scores in second straight

    DeKeyser scored a goal on his only shot and added a pair of blocks Saturday in a 5-4 overtime loss to Columbus.

    DeKeyser stepped into a slap shot from the top of the left circle to give Detroit a 2-1 lead at 11:55 of the second period. It was the second straight game with a goal for DeKeyser, who now has four on the year. The 31-year-old has 12 points in 47 contests this season.

  • Red Wings' Danny DeKeyser: Produces pair of helpers

    DeKeyser notched two assists, three shots on goal, three blocked shots and a plus-3 rating in Thursday's 7-3 win over the Stars.

    DeKeyser factored in on the second and third goals Jakub Vrana scored in the contest. The 31-year-old DeKeyser has produced four helpers in his last six games, although he can't be considered a steady source of offense. He's produced 10 points, 35 shots, 69 blocks, 40 hits and a minus-1 rating through 40 outings.

  • Red Wings' Danny DeKeyser: Records 100th career assist

    DeKeyser produced an assist, five blocked shots and a plus-2 rating in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Blackhawks.

    DeKeyser put together a sturdy defensive effort, and he added a helper on Troy Stecher's second tally of the game. The 31-year-old DeKeyser now has 100 assists in his career. This season, he's produced eight points, 27 shots on net, 58 blocked shots, 39 hits and a minus-1 rating.

  • Red Wings' Danny DeKeyser: Lands on waivers

    DeKeyser was waived by the Red Wings on Sunday, Pierre LeBrun of The Athletic reports.

    DeKeyser has been a fixture on Detroit's blue line this season, recording six points across 34 games. If he clears waivers, which is expected because he carries a $5 million cap hit, the Red Wings can place him on the taxi squad and receive some salary-cap relief.

  • Red Wings' Danny DeKeyser: Finds twine in shootout loss

    DeKeyser scored a goal in Tuesday's 3-2 shootout loss to the Predators.

    The first-period tally was initially credited to Adam Erne, but DeKeyser's shot wasn't tipped on its way into the net behind Juuse Saros. The 31-year-old DeKeyser doesn't generate much offense -- he has six points and 26 shots on net in 32 appearances. The Detroit native has added 49 blocked shots, 36 hits and 12 PIM this season.
