Season Outlook For Danny DeKeyser

08/06/2019 at 7:51am EDT

from Ansar Khan of Mlive,

2019-20 outlook: DeKeyser showed improvement during an injury-plagued season that cost him 30 games.

His skating and mobility enabled him to move the puck out of his zone more efficiently and quicker than he had the previous three years. Added strength allowed him to win more puck battles.

Overall, it was his best season since 2014-15, but he still wasn’t as strong as he was his first two full NHL seasons.

DeKeyser and Nick Jensen formed a solid pairing before Jensen was dealt to Washington just before the trade deadline.

DeKeyser figures to be paired with either Mike Green or Filip Hronek, while the other is partnered with Patrik Nemeth. They should comprise the team’s top four on defense.

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.
