Danny DeKeyser Move Gives The Wings Roster Flexibility

02/15/2021 at 1:50pm EST

from Nolan Bianchi of the Detroit News,

The Red Wings surprised a lot of people on Sunday by putting veteran defenseman Danny DeKeyseron waivers.

DeKeyser, who turns 31 in March and was a healthy scratch in the most recent Tampa and Nashville series’, cleared waivers at noon on Monday.

Blashill said that the move was “ultimately just a roster management move,” and that DeKeyser clearing waivers “gives room for flexibility.”

“We have to manage our roster within our taxi squad and the guys eligible to play, and trying to keep guys playing Grand Rapids,” Blashill added. “I wouldn’t read into it more than that.”

DeKeyser did clear waivers today.
