Detroit Red Wings defenseman Danny DeKeyser could be out for the rest of the Stanley Cup playoffs with an injury, as per a pair of tweets from Ansar Khan of

The 23-year-old DeKeyser had 16:15 in ice time in Thursday’s 5-4 overtime win for the Red Wings.

The Red Wings signed DeKeyser as a college free agent at the end of March. He agreed to a two-year deal with the Red Wings at the conclusion of his college hockey career at Western Michigan University.

DeKeyser played in 11 regular season games for the Red Wings after signing with the NHL club and had played in the first two playoff games against the Ducks.

There was also an injury update on Detroit’s Johan Franzen, who left the game near the end of the second period but returned for the third after reportedly taking a shot to a very sensitive part of the male body.

According to Khan, Franzen was not on the Red Wings’ bench to begin the overtime.

    Wow. Franzen gets hit in the junk to end the second and 20 minutes later they were checking him for a concussion. Guess it really is his second brain.

      The story is misleading, he got hit at the end of the 2nd period, but was on the ice at the beginning of the 3rd (scored a goal like 30 seconds in). He must have gotten hit at the end of the 3rd
