How heavy a load can Detroit Red Wings’ Danny DeKeyser carry after missing a year? - Freep

“I feel really good,” DeKeyser said Friday. “It’s been a long time, but I put in a lot of hard work this past year. I feel like I have to get back up to speed a little bit, especially when you have been out as long as I have been.

“That will be the biggest thing with me, getting back to that pace.”

No idea what to expect from DeKeyser this year, but wishing him the best.
