Helm (lower body) will miss both Monday's matchup with Buffalo, as well as Tuesday's trip to Montreal, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Helm has been plagued by injuries all season long and appears set to miss two more due to this latest ailment. It has been an all-around difficult campaign for the 30-year-old, as he has managed a meager 13 points when healthy this year, including his current seven-game pointless streak. If this latest malady is anything serious, it wouldn't be hard to imagine the Wings shutting the center down for the rest of the season considering they have been all but eliminated from playoff contention.
