Detroit — The Red Wings placed defenseman Danny DeKeyser into COVID-19 protocol Wednesday, before they faced the St. Louis Blues.

Detroit Red Wings defenseman Danny DeKeyser controls the puck against the Chicago Blackhawks during the first period of an NHL hockey game in Chicago, Sunday, Oct. 24, 2021.

The Wings early last week put forward Dylan Larkin into protocol in Dallas, but found out the next day Larkin was false-positive and Larkin re-joined the team in Vegas.

The Wings called up defenseman Dan Renouf from Grand Rapids early Wednesday, and Renouf replaced DeKeyser in the lineup.
