The Red Wings signed Danny DeKeyser to a six-year contract worth $30 million ($5M AAV).
DeKeyser, 26, is coming off of his third full NHL season and set a career-high in goals (8), but a career-low in points (20). DeKeyser is arguably the Red Wings’ top defenseman and they have locked him up through the 2021-22 season. Look for DeKeyser to play huge minutes for Detroit in 2016-17 and he has shown the potential to be and effective goal-scorer with 30-plus point potential.
DeKeyser (knee bruise) is expected to be in the lineup on Friday.
DeKeyser was struck by a shot on Wednesday, but is good to go for Friday’s game vs. the Avalanche. This is great news for the Red Wings, who are already without Mike Green and Niklas Kronwall on the back-end. DeKeyser has three goals and one assist in his last eight games.
DeKeyser left Wednesday's game after blocking a shot and did not return.
DeKeyser blocked a Dion Phaneuf in an uncomfortable spot and was forced to the locker room. He came out and tested it during a T.V timeout but couldn't put enough weight on it to return to the game. Head coach Jeff Blashill said he thinks DeKeyser is only dealing with a bruise and is day-to-day.
DeKeyser (foot) will make his season debut on Saturday vs. Montreal.

DeKeyser (foot) will not play on Friday; may return to the lineup on Saturday.
DeKeyser has missed the first three games of the season and he is expected to miss at least two more, before returning to the lineup on Saturday vs. the Canadiens. If DeKeyser returns, look for Jakub Kindl to come out of the lineup.
DeKeyser was expected to miss 3-4 weeks with a strained ligament in his foot. He is one and a half weeks into that timeline so he could skate solo for a few days before he is cleared to re-join practice. Monitor DeKeyser’s status as the week progresses, he could be ready to join the team as early as this weekend.
DeKeyser is expected to miss 3-4 weeks with a sprained ligament in his left foot.
This is a tough break for the Red Wings, who planned to have DeKeyser play with Mike Green so that Green could open up offensively. Green will now play with either Kyle Quincey or Brendan Smith and Jakub Kindl or one of the Red Wings’ young defensemen will be inserted into the lineup. DeKeyser is expected to miss at least the first seven games of the season.
After a two-game absence over the weekend, DeKeyser will be back in the lineup tonight vs. the Blue Jackets. DeKeyser will skate with Kyle Qunicey on the second pairing. He has one goal and 10 assists in 29 games this season.
DeKeyser (upper-body) is expected to play on Tuesday.
DeKeyser has missed the last two games with an upper-body injury that he suffered last Wednesday. With DeKeyser expected to be back in, either Brian Lashoff or Xavier Ouellet will come out of the lineup. DeKeyser has 11 points (1G / 10A) in 29 games this season.
DeKeyser (upper-body) will miss at least the next two games.
DeKeyser suffered an upper-body injury in Wednesday’s shootout loss to the Maple Leafs. He will miss the Red Wings back-to-back vs. Florida (FRI) and Toronto (SAT), but he hopes to be back in the lineup next Tuesday. Xavier Ouellet has been recalled from Grand Rapids.
The Red Wings have signed Danny DeKeyser to a two-year deal.
Dekeyser, 24, had four goals and 19 assists (23 points) in 65 games with the Red Wings in his first full pro season. The smooth skating defenceman was a calming presence on Detroit's blueline and should continue to develop his game as a top-4 NHL D-man.
DeKeyser (groin) says he is ready to return to the Red Wings blueline on Thursday.
DeKeyser missed Saturday's game vs. Dallas, but is likely to return on Thursday vs. San Jose. There has been no official word from the Red Wings so monitor his status on Thursday. He has recorded 10 points (2G / 8A) in 27 games.
Defenseman Danny DeKeyser won’t be at practice Friday listed as day-to-day with a lower-body injury.
The injury could be a groin which means day-to-day could mean a couple of weeks. The Wings have recalled defenseman Alexey Marchenko from Grand Rapids to take his place on the blue line. He’s expected to make his NHL debut Saturday in Dallas. Expect a more detailed injury update to come later in the day or on Saturday.
DeKeyser (shoulder) will return to the Red Wings lineup on Saturday.
DeKeyser's original timetable was 3-6 weeks and he will have returned in four weeks. He has not played since November 19, but will suit up against the Maple Leafs on Saturday. There is no word on who will come out of the lineup with DeKeyser back, but he did take Jakub Kindl's spot on the second power-play unit, so it could be Kindl or Brian Lashoff.
