Keefe’s message to Rasmus Sandin: “Right now, it’s Mikko’s time.”
Mikko Lehtonen will draw into the lineup in place of Dermott.
The 24-year-old left Thursday's game in the first period with what Keefe described as a charley horse. He was absent from Friday's practice.
In eight games this season, Dermott has zero points.
