Red Wings sign former Western Michigan defenceman Dan DeKeyser to 2-year deal

DETROIT - The Detroit Red Wings signed former Western Michigan defenceman Dan DeKeyser to a two-year contract Friday.

The 23-year-old DeKeyser, from Clay Township, had two goals and 13 assists in 35 games this season for the Broncos and was selected the Central Collegiate Hockey Association's best defensive defenceman for the second consecutive year. He was a free agent after going undrafted.

In 118 games in three seasons at Western Michigan, the 6-foot-3 defenceman had 12 goals and 37 assists. He also played two junior seasons with the Trail Smoke Eaters in the British Columbia Hockey League and the Sioux City Musketeers in the U.S. Hockey League.
