The Detroit Red Wings will be without one of their best defenseman to start the season. News has broke that Danny DeKeyser is set to miss 3-4 weeks with a sprained left foot ligament.

With the Wings facing off against the Leafs to start the season Oct 9th, this will give the team an extended look at the likes of Alexei Marchenko, Jakub Kindl, Xavier Ouellet or Brian Lashoff. The best two will start the season on the roster and the smart money would be on Marchenko and Kindl.
