Hellberg stopped 33 of 36 shots in Thursday's 4-3 overtime win over the Kings.

It was a solid first start of the season for Hellberg, who is filling in for Tristan Jarry (face). Through three appearances, Hellberg has allowed five goals on 64 shots this season. He'll likely start at home Saturday versus the Sabres if Jarry isn't cleared to play by then.... See More ... See Less

Red Wings' Magnus Hellberg: Strafed by Jets
Hellberg stopped 23 shots in Friday's 6-2 loss to Winnipeg.
Three Jets goals in the first 14 minutes of the first period put the game out of reach, as Hellberg lost for the fourth time in his last five decisions. Over that seven-appearance stretch, the 31-year-old has a brutal 4.12 GAA and .868 save percentage, and he may not see any further action this season if Ville Husso (lower body) gets healthy and Alex Nedeljkovic remains with the big club....

Hellberg didn't get much help from his teammates, who were criticized post-game by coach Derek Lalonde. "I'm really disappointed with the way we handled giving up the goals," said Lalonde. "Instead of feeling sorry for ourselves for four or five minutes after every goal, we have to go play the right way." He was replaced by Alex Nedeljikovic who made eight saves.... See More ...

Red Wings' Magnus Hellberg: Sees late action Saturday
Hellberg turned aside both shots he faced Saturday after replacing Ville Husso early in the third period of a 5-1 loss to the Avalanche.
The game was all but over by the time Red Wings coach Derek Lalonde made the switch, and Hellberg didn't see much action.

Red Wings' Magnus Hellberg: Crumbles against Boston
Hellberg stopped 35 shots in Saturday's 3-2 loss to the Bruins.

The 31-year-old netminder has lost his last three starts, allowing 13 total goals in those appearances, and he'll hand the crease back to Ville Husso as the two teams complete a home-and-home set Sunday in Detroit....

Hellberg made 32 saves in Saturday's 4-1 loss to the Islanders.
The 31-year-old netminder actually took a shutout into the third period, but the Red Wings completely collapsed over the final 20 minutes. Hellberg got the nod with Ville Husso (undisclosed) unavailable, but even if Husso isn't ready to go for Sunday's game against the Flyers, Alex Nedeljkovic would likely get the start instead. Hellberg hasn't done much to earn more playing time anyway, going 1-4-1 through seven appearances since the beginning of January with an .894 save percentage.... See More ... See Less
