Danny DeKeyser day-to-day after taking slap shot to the knee

After taking a Dion Phaneuf slap shot to the knee during Wednesday’s 3-1 win against the Ottawa Senators, defenseman Danny DeKeyser went straight down to the ice in pain. Luckily for him, and the Detroit Red Wings, it doesn’t appear to be a serious injury.

DeKeyser is officially considered day-to-day.

“It’s a bruise is what it looks like. It’s a not a break by any means,” Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill said after the game. “It was sore. It hit in a spot that’s going to be painful. He’ll be day-to-day. We’ll see tomorrow where it’s at. He just couldn’t put enough weight on it to finish the game.”

Phaneuf possesses one of the hardest shots in the league, and this one caught DeKeyser on the outside of the knee, which led to him needing help to get off the ice. He did return to the ice later in the game for about 10 seconds, before deciding to return to the back.

Add DeKeyser’s name to the list of Red Wings defenseman who are listed on the injury report. Niklas Kronwall (knee) and Mike Green (groin) are already missing time.

Before the injury, DeKeyser recorded his seventh goal of the season.

With the team not being slated to practice tomorrow, they might not have an update on his status for Friday’s game against the Colorado Avalanche until Friday morning.
