Video: Detroit’s DeKeyser flies with the Blue Angels

6 Comments

Detroit Red Wings defenseman Danny DeKeyser jumped on a unique opportunity on Tuesday, as he flew in a Blue Angels F/A-18 Hornet jet at Selfridge Air National Guard Base in southeast Michigan. He raved about the experience to MLive.com … and not just because he didn’t need to use one of the barf bags he brought with him.

“It was awesome,” DeKeyser told MLive.com moments after flying with the Blue Angels. “I’m still feeling a little woozy right now. I’ve never experienced anything like that.”

Red Wings TV shared some footage of the 24-year-old soaking it all in:

Now, if the Red Wings could just get DeKeyser out of the negotiating danger zone
