The Blues would love to sign defenseman Danny DeKeyser, a collegiate free agent who rose to elite prospect status under Western Michigan University coach Andy Murray.

(Yes, that Andy Murray the former Blues coach who reinvented himself into a successful college hockey mentor.)

DeKeyser is ready to bolt to the NHL this week and the Blues hockey staff is in hot pursuit. Of course, every NHL team has shown interest in him and the Detroit Red Wings would love to keep the Michigan native close to home.
