Avalanche's Darren Helm: Dishing out pain
Helm scored a goal on two shots, logged 12 hits and added four PIM in Saturday's 7-0 win over the Lightning in Game 2.
Helm hurt the Lightning in multiple ways Saturday, as the 12 hits were double the next best total, achieved by three players. The veteran also tallied the Avalanche's fifth goal of the contest, his second of the postseason in 16 games. He's picked up four points, but fantasy managers looking for cheap physicality in DFS should know him well by now, as he has 84 hits in the postseason, good for over five body checks per game....

Avalanche's Darren Helm: Delivers 10 hits
Helm dished out 10 hits against Tampa Bay on Wednesday. In addition, the center recorded four shots and a minus-2 rating in 15:07 of ice time.
Helm led both teams in hits and set a new personal season high as he gave the Avs some much-needed physicality. Offensively, Helm has managed just one goal and two assists in 15 postseason contests, so fantasy players shouldn't be banking on him producing offensively with any consistency.... See More ...

Avalanche's Darren Helm: Generates helper
Helm notched an assist, two shots on goal and two hits in Thursday's 3-1 win over the Devils.
Helm entered Thursday on a three-game point drought before setting up Logan O'Connor for the opening tally. The 35-year-old Helm has been decent in a bottom-six role with 14 points, 83 shots, 102 hits and a minus-3 rating through 61 outings. Those numbers aren't likely to move the needle in fantasy, but he's a steady veteran presence on the Avalanche's fourth line.... See More ... See Less

Helm scored a goal on one shot and assisted on a second score in Tuesday's 6-4 win over the Penguins. He added one hit and finished plus-1 over 9:57 of ice time.
Helm notched the game-winner after Logan O'Connor forced a turnover in the Colorado end. Helm joined the 2-on-1 breakout and finished off a pretty feed for the fourth-line center's second goal in three games. With a pair of elite scorers missing -- Gabriel Landeskog (knee) and Nazem Kadri (upper body) -- it's vital for the Avalanche to get depth scoring from their bottom sixers.... See More ... See Less

Helm scored a goal and added two hits in Thursday's 4-2 win over the Sharks.
Helm gave the Avalanche a 2-1 lead early in the third period after a steal and set-up by Valeri Nichushkin. The 35-year-old Helm has three points in three games versus the Sharks this season, and he's up to 11 points, 77 shots on net, 92 hits and a minus-2 rating in 55 contests overall. The veteran is likely to remain in a fourth-line role given the depth of the Avalanche's forward group.... See More ... See Less
Avalanche's Darren Helm: Slides helper Friday
Helm notched an assist in Friday's 6-3 win over the Flyers.
Helm helped out on a Kurtis MacDermid goal in the second period. This was Helm's second assist and third point in his last six games. The burst of depth scoring comes at a time where the 35-year-old could face competition for playing time after the Avalanche were buyers at the trade deadline. He's at 10 points, 74 shots on net, 87 hits and a minus-3 rating in 52 contests overall, and he'll likely be limited to fourth-line minutes going forward.... See More ... See Less
Avalanche's Darren Helm: Faces competition
Helm could see his role reduced following Colorado's trade acquisitions Monday, Adrian Dater of Colorado Hockey Now reports.
The Avalanche added Artturi Lehkonen and Andrew Cogliano prior to the trade deadline, and those two are expected to compete for fourth-line roles. That means Helm, Nicolas Aube-Kubel and Kurtis MacDermid may be healthy scratches some nights going forward. As the lone center among that group of players, Helm figures to be best positioned to become a player on the playoff roster, but there could be an open audition until the end of the regular season....

Avalanche's Darren Helm: Finds twine in win
Helm scored a goal on two shots in Friday's 5-3 win over the Sharks.

The 35-year-old center has two points in his last three outings, but he's at just nine points in 49 appearances overall, mainly playing in a fourth-line role. He's added 82 hits and a minus-4 rating, but Helm likely won't need to be rostered in most fantasy formats.... See More ... See Less

Helm posted an assist, two PIM and two hits in Sunday's 3-0 win over the Flames.
Helm controlled the puck and set up Mikko Rantanen for an empty-net goal to seal the win. The helper ended a seven-game point drought for Helm, who saw 10:28 of ice time as the Avalanche dressed only 11 forwards in this contest. The 35-year-old has often been limited to a fourth-line role this season, but he could move up to the third line with Gabriel Landeskog (knee) out for a month. Helm has just eight points with 67 shots on net, 76 hits and a minus-5 rating through 47 appearances.... See More ... See Less
