DETROIT >> Wings general manager Ken Holland has spoken with restricted free agent defensemen Danny DeKeyser’s agent Monday and plans to do so again Tuesday in order to try and get a deal done.
“I think so,” Holland said when asked if he feels their getting closer to a deal. “Whether you’re close or far you’re still not close enough if you haven’t got a deal done.”
DeKeyser continues to take part in on-ice workouts at Joe Louis Arena and is scheduled to go on Wednesday on a bus tour prior to arriving in Traverse City.
“I’m kind of anxious, hopefully something gets done here soon with camp a few days away,” DeKeyser said. “We’re talking at least a couple times a week, a lot more than I was earlier in summer.”
When DeKeyser was asked whether he felt confident a deal could get done he said, “I hope so.”
