Red Wings defenseman DeKeyser to miss 3-4 weeks

Detroit Red Wings defenseman Danny DeKeyser has a sprained ligament in his left foot and will be out 3-4 weeks.

DeKeyser was injured Wednesday during the third period of a preseason game against the Pittsburgh Penguins. The Red Wings website reported the injury occurred on an awkward hit DeKeyser received while killing a penalty. He played one shift after the hit.

"I think Danny's an excellent defenseman in the League," Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill told the Red Wings website. "I think he's an underrated player in the League, especially nationally, across both nations. I think Danny's become an elite top-two defenseman in the NHL. With that said, one thing we have in this organization is depth. With Danny out for the 3-4 weeks, I'm very confident we'll dress six defensemen that are absolutely good enough to win, and now we've just got to execute on a nightly basis."

Quote of the Day

Jamie improves every game and every year. I've only been with him for two years, but as a player and as a person it seems like every week he's getting stronger and better, and becoming a better leader and better captain. He wants the team to be so successful that he's making himself better as a player.
