He averaged 21:48 minutes of ice time per game last season, while contributing eight goals and 20 points in 78 matches. DeKeyser has become a top-four defender for the Red Wings, but he still has work to do before he becomes a viable player in fantasy leagues.

Danny DeKeyser's arbitration hearing is set for Thursday, but an agreement on a long-term deal could be finalized before that.

"Ideally, Danny would like to do a longer-term deal. The club would like to do a longer-term deal," GM Ken Holland said. "Since they filed, this period of negotiation and time to do your brief for an arbitration hearing has mostly been about discussions on a longer-term deal. We talked Thursday, we talked Friday, we're going to talk again today." He can only receive a one-year deal if his case is heard.

Brad Richards has announced his retirement.

Richards is hanging up his skates after scoring 298 goals and 932 points in 1,126 contests with the Tampa Bay Lightning, Dallas Stars, New York Rangers, Chicago Blackhawks, and Detroit Red Wings. He's a two-time Stanley Cup winner and claimed the 2004 Conn Smythe Trophy after recording 12 goals and 26 points in 23 contests during that playoff run. "Winning the Stanley Cups in Tampa Bay and Chicago was the best part of my career and I will never forget those moments. Nothing compares to enjoying that night with your team and knowing what you have accomplished together," Richards said.

Daniel Cleary wants to play again next season, even if it's with an AHL team.

Cleary ended up playing in the minors last season and while that was difficult at times, the 37-year-old ended up having a good time. "I really enjoyed what I did last season, being in that role, helping the young kids grow into being future Red Wings," Cleary said. "I’m training to do that (playing). It took me a few days (after being sent down), but after I settled into it, I really enjoyed the experience in Grand Rapids. It’s a great coaching staff, great group of guys, great training staff. It was a lot of fun, and I still want to play. The thing is, though, is can this body hold up over the course of a season? But I feel I can help mentor young players, and show them what it takes to play in the NHL." Cleary has 938 games worth of NHL experience and another 121 contests worth of playoff experience under his belt. So if Cleary is willing to accept a minor league job under the idea that he'll help mentor the prospects, there should be some interest in him.

Axel Holmstrom will remain in Sweden for the 2016-17 campaign.

Holmstrom has a torn ACL that he won't recover from until September or October and that's played a role in the decision for him not to come to North America at this time. "Until Axel suffered his injury, that was certainly his expectation, to have a good year in Sweden and then set himself up to come into training camp in '16-17 and compete for a spot in Detroit and then play in Grand Rapids mostly likely," Red Wings assistant GM Ryan Martin said. "When he suffered the injury I think because of the long recovery process he doesn't feel he's in a position to start his career in North America the way he would like to. He would prefer when he starts his North American career that he's 100 percent and ready to go." Holmstrom had eight goals and 23 points in 48 games with Skelleftea AIK in 2015-16.
