The 24-year-old Michigan native participated in 65 games last season, totaling four goals and 19 assists with a plus-10 rating. He was held scoreless in a five-game first-round playoff loss to the Bruins.
A Western Michigan product and left-handed shooter, DeKeyser has collected 24 points in 76 NHL contests over the last two campaigns.

Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) -
Considering the young franchise is coming off the first playoff appearance in team history, the Columbus Blue Jackets should be eager to get the 2014-15 season underway.
However, when NHL training camps open Thursday, the Blue Jackets could be without a key component of their memorable 2013-14 campaign as centerman Ryan Johansen remains unsigned.
Johansen, a restricted free agent, is taking a hard-line stance to negotiating his next contract, and part of his strategy could include holding out from training camp.
