Topics Before Training Camp

from Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press,

Danny DeKeyser is expected to be available, although no one is quite sure how effective he will be considering he has not played since October 2019, when he was lost eight games into the season to a back injury that required surgery.

“I don’t know that I would put a percentage on where Danny is at,” Blashill said. “But I know even if he feels absolutely perfect, it still has been a long, long time since he has played and it is going to take a while to get the kinks out. I don’t think that for me to envision the Danny DeKeyser that started last year will be the Danny DeKeyser that starts this year — I think that would be very wishful thinking.

“We have to expect Danny to work himself back into all those situations. But I do anticipate Danny being ready for camp. I don’t anticipate anybody not being ready for camp, but this, more than ever, is a day-to-day world. You might come in one day and three guys might have to sit because they have potential symptoms and you are just waiting to see if those symptoms become positive for COVID. We are just going to have to be fluid and be ready for different challenges.”

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.
