from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

Injuries have plagued the veteran defenseman for the last two seasons, which has bothered Daley as much as the Wings’ losing.

“Losing, dealing with the injuries for the last two years – it’s not ideal,” Daley said. “But there’s an opportunity now and you have to run with it.”

Daley, 36, has been limited to 22 games this season, with no goals and one assist.  He only played in 44 games last season, after appearing in 77 his first season with the Wings.

Daley is in the final year of a $9.5 million, three-year free-agent contract he signed with the Wings.

“Trevor has been a real good defensemen in this league, a real good piece of the Pittsburgh team that won the Cups recently,” coach Jeff Blashill said. “He’s a good skating defenseman who gets the puck out of your end and plays with moxie and confidence.

“It’s been real hard, when you’ve had as many injuries as he’s faced, and you get older. It’s real hard, he’s creeping up there, but he still has good hockey left in him.

“But he has to stay healthy.”
