Red Wings' Danny DeKeyser: No return in sight
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

DeKeyser (back) remains on injured reserve, according to the NHL's official media site.

This isn't all that surprising considering the Red Wings announced in December that DeKeyser needed back surgery. We're talking about a team that was eliminated from playoff contention before the trade deadline, therefore, rushing back DeKeyser would be a fruitless endeavor. It's a real shame that Danny D has experienced this injury; he started the season hot with four helpers over eight games. The Detroit native has two more years remaining on his contract worth $5 million AAV.

Red Wings' Danny DeKeyser: Set to miss remainder of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

DeKeyser suffered a setback and will require back surgery, which will likely cause him to be sidelined for the rest of the 2019-20 campaign, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports.

DeKeyser has been out of action since Oct. 22 versus Vancouver due to his lingering back issue. The 29-year-old notched four points in his first eight games and seemed set for a big year. With the blueliner headed under the knife, he will need to focus his attention on being ready for 2020-21.

Red Wings' Danny DeKeyser: Not progressing well
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

DeKeyser (undisclosed) is still not practicing, Helene St. James of The Detroit Free Press reports.

One of Detroit's better two-way defensemen, DeKeyser has been out of commission since Oct. 22. Typically, when a player has missed this much action, he'd be met with a conditioning stint as the final step in his recovery, but the Michigan native isn't even there yet. As a result, it's safe to leave him as a free agent across the board in fantasy leagues.

Red Wings' Danny DeKeyser: Return not imminent
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

DeKeyser (undisclosed) is not close to rejoining the lineup, Dana Wakiji of the Red Wings' official site reports.

DeKeyser remains on injured reserve with a week-to-week return timetable. Detroit's blue line is a mess considering Danny D and three other defensemen are out of commission with their respective injuries, so it's best to stay away from all of them except maybe Filip Hronek from a fantasy perspective.

Red Wings' Danny DeKeyser: Still sidelined
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

DeKeyser (undisclosed) won't play Friday against Boston, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.

DeKeyser is still on injured reserve and the Red Wings have yet to release any details regarding a potential timetable for his recovery. The 29-year-old blueliner should be considered out indefintely until Detroit releases an update clarifying his status.

Red Wings' Danny DeKeyser: Officially placed on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

DeKeyser (undisclosed) was placed on injured reserve retroactive to Oct. 22, per the NHL's official media site.

DeKeyser has already been ruled out until Nov. 8 against the Bruins, so his placement on IR simply opens up a roster spot. The 29-year-old blueliner is still seeking his first goal of the year, but he's piled up four helpers and 20 blocked shots over eight games. Dennis Cholowski bumps into a top-four role in DeKeyser's place.

Red Wings' Danny DeKeyser: Out two weeks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

DeKeyser (undisclosed) will be out for two weeks, according to coach Jeff Blashill, Dana Wakiji of the Red Wings' official site reports.

A two-week absence would allow DeKeyser to return Nov. 8 against Boston. His veteran presence will be missed on a young Detroit blue line that needs a lot more development before it can consistently keep the team in games.

Red Wings' Danny DeKeyser: No-go Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

DeKeyser (undisclosed) won't play Wednesday against the Senators.

With DeKeyser unavailable, Madison Bowey will draw into the lineup against Ottawa. The 29-year-old blueliner, who's picked up four points in eight games this campaign, will be reevaluated ahead of Friday's matchup with Buffalo.

Red Wings' Danny DeKeyser: In doubt against Senators
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

DeKeyser (undisclosed) is questionable for Wednesday's matchup with Ottawa, Callum Fraser of NHL.com reports.

DeKeyser got off to a strong start to the season with four helpers in the first four games, but has since been held without a point in his last four contests. If the blueliner is able to give it a go, it would likely be Madison Bowey who gets relegated to the press box.

Red Wings' Danny DeKeyser: Suffers injury Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

DeKeyser (undisclosed) left Tuesday's game against Vancouver and didn't return, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Coach Jeff Blashill didn't have an update on DeKeyser's injury postgame, so it's certainly cause for concern, especially considering the defenseman didn't return to action. The Red Wings have a quick turnaround in Ottawa on Wednesday, so expect a report regarding DeKeyser's status for the game to emerge before hand. If he can't go, Madison Bowey would be available to enter the lineup.

Red Wings' Danny DeKeyser: Back on the blue line
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

DeKeyser (upper body) had three blocked shots and one shot on goal in Thursday's 5-1 loss to the Flames.

The 29-year-old missed the previous two games with an upper-body injury, but was cleared to play Thursday and logged 22:41 of ice time, the most on the Red Wings. With five goals and 20 points in 52 games last season, DeKeyser isn't a big point producer but his return to the lineup helps stabilize the Detroit blue line in front of goaltenders Jimmy Howard and Jonathan Bernier.

Red Wings' Danny DeKeyser: Good to go Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

DeKeyser (upper body) is out there for warmups and is expected to be in the lineup for Thursday's clash with the Flames, Dana Wakiji of the Red Wings' official site reports.

DeKeyser was upgraded to a game-time call prior to the game, and as evidenced by this news, he feels good enough to give it a go. Per Wakiji, he took line rushes during warmups, which is a great sign for his availability. DeKeyser's expected to be deployed on the top defensive pair with Filip Hronek, while Trevor Daley is expected to exit the lineup.

Red Wings' Danny DeKeyser: Game-time call Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

DeKeyser (upper body) has been upgraded to a game-time decision for Thursday's contest versus the Flames, Dana Wakiji of the Red Wings' official site reports.

DeKeyser was initially expected to sit out Thursday's game, but coach Jeff Blashill's comments at least provide some hope that he will be in uniform. Look for another update on the blueliner's status when the Wings take the ice for pregame warmups Thursday evening.

Red Wings' Danny DeKeyser: Unlikely to suit up Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

DeKeyser (upper body) isn't expected to dress for Thursday's game against the Flames, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports.

DeKeyser's injury surfaced before Tuesday's tilt versus the Canucks, allowing Trevor Daley into the pairings for the Red Wings. The blueliner has raced off to a hot start in the early going, collecting four assists through five games, but it would be surprising if he continues anywhere near that pace given his absence from the power play. Barring a quick recovery in the next 24 hours, Friday against the Oilers may serve as Dekeyser's next opportunity to rejoin the action.

Red Wings' Danny DeKeyser: Late scratch Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

DeKeyser (upper body) won't suit up for Tuesday's game against the Canucks, Dana Wakiji of the Red Wings' official site reports.

DeKeyser participated in warmups but was unable to take line rushes, so he'll watch this game from the press box. DeKeyser left practice early Tuesday, and now it's clear he has an upper-body issue. Trevor Daley will pair up with Filip Hronek in his place.

Red Wings' Danny DeKeyser: Dishing at impressive clip
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

DeKeyser registered two assists and a plus-3 rating Thursday in a 4-2 road win over the Canadiens.

Despite the relatively high score for the visitors, DeKeyser was the only Red Wing to deliver a two-point performance in this one. The Detroit native is off to a terrific start, as he's unselfishly provided four helpers in just as many games.

Red Wings' Danny DeKeyser: Registers helper to open season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

DeKeyser added an assist and three blocked shots in Saturday's 5-3 road win over the Predators.

It appeared that DeKeyser would be held pointless on Opening Night, but Tyler Bertuzzi found the back of an empty net on a wraparound, with the eighth-year defenseman getting credit for the secondary apple. The big downside of owning DeKeyser is that he no longer receives power-play minutes, but health permitting, he should average more than 20 minutes of ice time with plentiful opportunities to share the ice with top-six forwards.

Red Wings' Danny DeKeyser: All set for training camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

DeKeyser (lower body) is good to go for training camp, according to Dana Wakiji of the Red Wings' official site.

DeKeyser was limited to 52 games in the 2018-19 campaign, but he still enjoyed one of his most productive seasons based on an output of 20 points (five goals, 15 assists). The Detroit native is best reserved for deep leagues that give bonuses for hits and blocked shots -- he had 79 and 94 of those, respectively, last season.

Red Wings' Danny DeKeyser: All but ruled out for finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Red Wings' Danny DeKeyser: Another absence expected
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.
