A Healthy Jacob de la Rose

from Dana Wakiji of DetroitRedWings.com,

"Obviously, it's scary when it's your heart," de la Rose said after Saturday's practice at Little Caesars Arena. "You don't really know what's going on. You know right away it's something serious when it comes to the heart. I knew I was in good hands with the doctors and everything. It was the second time it had happened, too. It happened in Montreal in training camp last year, so I kind of knew what it was this time.

"We decided to have a procedure done and everything went well. I feel normal. I had a good summer and was able to work out as usual, so I feel fine and I feel excited to get this season going."

The 24-year-old Swede experienced no trouble in playing back-to-back games against the Chicago Blackhawks to start the preseason.

In the first game, at Little Caesars Arena, de la Rose had 23 shifts for 20:19, had one shot, three hits, one giveaway and was an impressive 10-for-13 in face-offs.

In the second game, at Chicago's United Center, de la Rose had 21 shifts for 18:10, had one shot, three hits, one giveaway, two takeaways and was 5-for-14 in face-offs.

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977.  No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y.  Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation.  There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature.  Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
