Top Darren Helm News

  • Avalanche's Darren Helm: Registers assist Saturday

    Helm notched an assist, five hits and two PIM in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Blues in Game 3.

    Helm picked up his first point in these playoffs with a secondary assist on a Logan O'Connor tally in the first period. While he hasn't added much offense, Helm's veteran leadership and defense make him a lock for the lineup every game. The 35-year-old has added 32 hits, six shots on net and a plus-1 rating from a fourth-line role.

  • Avalanche's Darren Helm: Lends assist in shootout loss

    Helm picked up an assist, three hits and four PIM in Thursday's 5-4 shootout loss to the Predators.

    Helm ended a five-game point drought with the helper on a J.T. Compher tally in the second period. In his first season with the Avalanche, Helm has 15 points, 91 shots on net, 114 hits and 14 PIM through 67 contests. He'll likely continue in a fourth-line role heading into the playoffs.

  • 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.

  • Avalanche's Darren Helm: Provides depth offense

    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.

  • Avalanche's Darren Helm: Deposits goal Thursday

    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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

    Helm doubled the Avalanche's lead to 2-0 with his first-period tally. 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.

  • Avalanche's Darren Helm: Ends drought with assist

    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.

  • Avalanche's Darren Helm: Returns to lineup

    Helm had four shots on net and a blocked shot over 8:30 of ice time in Monday's 5-4 win over the Islanders.

    Helm returned to the lineup after being a healthy scratch for Saturday's game against Calgary. Head coach Jared Bednar continues to shuttle in fourth-line forwards, as it was Kurtis MacDermid's night to sit out. Helm has just one point over the last 20 games while averaging 8:39 TOI during that stretch.

Kurtis MacDermid was active and skated on the fourth line.

  • Avalanche's Darren Helm: Earns assist against former team

    Helm notched an assist and blocked two shots in Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Red Wings.

    Making his first appearance in Detroit since he left for the Avalanche in free agency, Helm was in the starting lineup Wednesday. That worked out well, as he earned the secondary assist on a Gabriel Landeskog tally. This was Helm's first point since Dec. 10 when he scored against none other than the Red Wings. For the year, he's at seven points, 53 shots on net, 62 hits and a minus-4 rating in 39 contests, mainly playing in a fourth-line role.

    Helm had one shot on goal, three hits and one blocked shot over 9:18 of ice time in Thursday's 3-2 win over Tampa Bay.

    Helm returned to action following a 12-game absence due to a lower-body injury. He served as a winger on the fourth line, skating with center Tyson Jost and winger Nicolas Aube-Kubel. The 35-year-old former Red Wing has four goals, two assists, 49 shots, 50 hits and six PIM over 33 games during his first season with the Avalanche.
