Helm (lower body) took line rushes prior to Monday's road matchup with the Hurricanes, indicating that he will return to the lineup after a four-game absence, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports. Barring an expected late change, Helm will play Monday night's game and skate on Detroit's fourth line with Drew Miller and Luke Glendening. He'll look to end his seven-game point-less streak during which he's accumulated a minus-5 rating and 12 shots on goal.
Helm (lower body) will be a game-time decision for Monday's matchup with the Hurricanes. If Helm is sidelined against Carolina, it would mark his fifth consecutive missed contest. Prior to getting hurt, the winger was bogged down in a seven-game pointless streak, during which time he managed two PIM, a pair of blocked shots, and 17 hits. With only eight games remaining, it seems doubtful the veteran will reach the 20-point mark this season.
Helm (lower body) will not play in Sunday's game against the Wild. Helm was skating well during pregame warmups, but didn't take part in the team's line rushes. It marks his fourth straight absence from the lineup, though his absence shouldn't be felt in many formats given his lack of scoring (eight goals, five assists) in 42 games for the Red Wings this season. The veteran's next chance to rejoin the lineup arrives Monday against the Hurricanes, an outcome that seems plausible given his level of participation in warmups Sunday.
Helm (lower body) will not play Friday night, but Sunday's game against the visiting Wild is a possibility, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports. The Red Wings have 265 total man games lost this season -- including 28 for the speedy Helm -- so what's another going to hurt a team out of the playoff race? For fantasy owners, though, he's one less special teams and scoring option likely to be found on the clearance rack in daily settings.
Helm (lower body) has yet to be ruled out of Friday's contest against the Lightning, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports. Helm's still considered a long shot to play, and the Red Wings are undoubtedly playing it safe with the speedy forward since their playoff hopes are dashed. A more realistic date for Helm's return is Sunday's tilt opposing the Wild.
