Danny DeKeyser Is Feeling Good Now

from Art Regner and Dana Wakiji of DetroitRedWings.com,

DeKeyser's season has been somewhat of a roller coaster ride. He injured his ankle in the third game of season at Dallas and it was originally thought to be a sprained ankle.

However, because it the healing process was going slowly, the ankle was reexamined and it turned out DeKeyser suffered a "small fracture in a bone" of his ankle causing him to miss 17 games from October 12 through November 17.

Once he returned it took a while to get back into game shape. Dekeyser was a minus player in nine of his first 10 games after he was back in the lineup. However; in his next 32 games, he was a minus player in only five games.

During this ten-game winless streak, he has been a minus player in six of the ten games, but DeKeyser is encouraged by his season considering how he played after he came back from his fractured ankle.

"I think the past couple of months I felt really good on the ice," DeKeyser said. "I feel like I've gotten my skating legs and had some good jump, some good energy out there. I just try to play as hard as I can, be good defensively, chip in a little bit offensively, stuff like that. I've felt good lately.

“I think the past couple of months I felt really good on the ice,” DeKeyser said.

So, that’s how they play when they feel good.
