KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- Fans of Western Michigan University Hockey ought to get a kick out of this -- WMU's own Danny DeKeyser has been signed with the Detroit Red Wings.
DeKeyser had his choice of several NHL teams to join, but it's not surprising that he'd pick the Wings, considering that he's from Metro Detroit. Robin Hook, the voice of the WMU Broncos, says that DeKeyser could start at any time, maybe even tonight.DeKeyser played with the Broncos in 35 games this year. In that time, the defenseman had two goals and 13 assists. Also signing with an NHL team -- WMU's Matt Tennyson, who will be playing for the San Jose Sharks.
