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.

Wings' DeKeyser Snaps Slump

News: Danny DeKeyser ended a five-game pointless skid Thursday with a pair of third-period assists and a plus-2 rating in a win over the Sharks.
Analysis: Going back further, Danny DeKeyser had just two points in the last 13 games entering play Thursday. Still, he's earned praise from the coaching staff this year, and at age 24, he still has room to develop his offensive game.

Red Wings' DeKeyser Assists In Loss

News: Danny DeKeyser was credited with an assist in Saturday's shootout loss to the Jets.
Analysis: With 21 points over 52 games, Danny DeKeyser trails only Niklas Kronwall in defenseman scoring for the Red Wings. He's beginning to show up on the radar in mid-sized formats, but will probably need to provide a steady stream of offensive production before fantasy owners begin rushing to the waiver wire to claim him.

Wings' DeKeyser Collects Two Helpers

News: Danny DeKeyser picked up two assists in Sunday's win over Buffalo.
Analysis: With four points (all assists) in his last four games, Danny DeKeyser is up to two goals and 19 points in 44 games on the season, to go with a plus-5 rating. Averaging 21:05 of ice time, the 24-year-old is a solid defenseman who should land in the 30-40 point range this season. He plays a key role on a Red Wings team that has won six of their last seven games.

Wings' DeKeyser Picks Up Secondary Assist

News: Danny DeKeyser was credited with a secondary assist on Pavel Datsyuk's overtime winner Thursday against the Blues.
Analysis: Danny DeKeyser has assists in back-to-back games, giving him 17 points in 42 contests on the season. The Red Wings believe the 24-year-old is capable of developing into a star on the blue line, but he'll need to pile up the points with more frequency to turn that into a reality.

Two Points For Wings' DeKeyser

News: Danny DeKeyser scored his second goal of the season, added a power-play assist and went plus-1 in Tuesday's victory over the Sabres.
Analysis: He'd been slumping badly since scoring his first goal of the year Nov. 30, as Danny DeKeyser had managed just a lonely assist over eight December games prior to Tuesday's slate. One of the more talented young blueliners around, the 24-year-old DeKeyser owns a relatively modest 13 points in 33 games on the year, but he's got big-time upside in the long run.

Red Wings' DeKeyser To Return Tuesday

News: Danny DeKeyser (upper body) will play in Tuesday's game against the Blue Jackets, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports.
Analysis: Danny DeKeyser will return to action after missing two games over the weekend. He is expected to line up next to Kyle Quincey as part of the Red Wings' second defensive pairing.

Wings' DeKeyser Shooting For Tuesday Return

News: Danny DeKeyser (upper body) skated Saturday and hopes to return for Tuesday's game, Ansar Khan of MLive reports.
Analysis: Danny DeKeyser was injured in Wednesday's game and has since been replaced by Xavier Ouellet. The blueliner has 11 points in 29 games on the season.

Wings' DeKeyser Out For Next Two Games

News: Danny DeKeyser has been ruled out for both of the Red Wings' weekend contests with an upper-body injury, MLive.com's Ansar Khan reports.
Analysis: Though it didn't result in a drop in ice time, Danny DeKeyser more than likely suffered the injury in Wednesday's loss to the Maple Leafs. The Red Wings are optimistic that the two games off might be all DeKeyser needs to recover, so he'll hone in on a return to the lineup Tuesday versus the Blue Jackets. Xavier Ouellet was recalled from AHL Grand Rapids to give the Red Wings an extra body on defense.

Wings' DeKeyser On A Roll

News: Danny DeKeyser picked up an assist for the third straight game Thursday, contributing to a 4-3 victory over Winnipeg.
Analysis: After registering only four points in his first sixteen games, Danny DeKeyser has nearly doubled his output in the last three contests. DeKeyser hasn't shown a ton of offensive upside in the NHL, but is still on pace for about 30 points on the season.

Red Wings' DeKeyser Nabs A Point

News: Danny DeKeyser assisted on the Red Wings' lone goal in Tuesday's overtime loss to the Canadiens.
Analysis: Re-signed to a two-year deal in September, Danny DeKeyser is a valued member of the Red Wings' defensive corps, but is little more than deep-league fodder for fantasy purposes. He's registered two points in six games and doesn't produce overwhelming numbers in specialty categories like hits, blocks and penalty minutes.

Red Wings' DeKeyser Signs Two-Year Deal

News: Danny DeKeyser singed a two-year, $4.38 million deal with the Red Wings on Tuesday, TSN's Aaron Ward reports.
Analysis: As expected, the Red Wings finally worked out a deal to bring the 24-year-old back to Detroit following a lengthy standoff. Danny DeKeyser appeared in 65 games for the Wings last season, registering four goals and 19 assists for 23 total points. He also posted a plus-10 rating and 30 penalty minutes.

Red Wings And DeKeyser Still Playing Hardball

News: Danny DeKeyser, a restricted free agent, has yet to reach agreement on a new contract with the Red Wings a week before training camp commences, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports.
Analysis: The two sides have tried to find common ground on a deal for two months, putting Danny DeKeyser at risk of missing the beginning of training camp. It appears the major roadblock in getting a deal done has been the Red Wings' inability to find a comparable market rate to work as launching point for a contract, since the 24-year-old DeKeyser has only 76 carer games on his ledger. Given the team's lack of quality depth on defense, expect the Red Wings to bring DeKeyser back into the fold before or shortly after the season opener.

Wings' DeKeyser A Healthy Scratch

News: Danny DeKeyser is a healthy scratch for the Red Wings in their regular season finale, Ted Kulfan of The Detroit News reports.
Analysis: Danny DeKeyser will join teammate Niklas Kronwall as a healthy scratch for Sunday's contest. He should be ready to go for the Red Wings' first playoff game.

DeKeyser Busy In Detroit Win

News: Danny DeKeyser had two assists in Friday's 3-2 win over Buffalo, giving him four assists in the last four games.
Analysis: Danny DeKeyser is a talented youngster on the Detroit blue line and should see a larger role as his career continues. He has a solid 23 points on the season through 61 games and has been seeing close to two minutes of power play time a game the last few weeks.

Two Helpers For Wings' DeKeyser

News: Danny DeKeyser notched a pair of assists and went plus-1 in Thursday's overtime win against Pittsburgh.
Analysis: Points have been fairly hard to come by for Danny DeKeyser, as even this fine night pushed his season to tal to just 19. He'd been scoreless in the prior three games and hadn't had a multi-point outing since way back on Nov. 15. DeKeyser does have some long-term offensive upside, but don't expect him to realize it for a few years yet.

Analysis: Coach Mike Babcock and the training staff have yet to sign off on Danny DeKeyser for the game, but the defenseman's optimism would seem to bode well for his status. He sat out Saturday's game against Dallas after sustaining the lower-body injury during the Winter Classic.

Wings' DeKeyser Expects To Sit Out Saturday

News: Danny DeKeyser (lower body) is expected to sit out Saturday, Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News reports.

Analysis: Danny DeKeyser has racked up 10 points and 12 penalty minutes over 27 games this season. His day-to-day classification may put his status for Saturday's contest in Dallas in jeopardy.
