The Detroit Red Wings have announced that defenseman and assistant captain Danny DeKeyser has been placed on the NHL’s COVID-19 list ahead of tonight’s game against the St. Louis Blues, docking them yet another defenseman as Troy Stecher is already absent due to injury and Marc Staal is absent due to a non-covid related illness.
UPDATE: The Detroit #RedWings

The Red Wings already had a bout with COVID-19 protocols last week, as captain Dylan Larkin was yanked from Wednesday’s game in Dallas after what turned out to be a false-positive test.
In 19 games played this season, he’s registered two assists along with a -2 plus/minus rating.
