Red Wings' Darren Helm: Sitting out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Helm (undisclosed) isn't in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Blackhawks.

Helm came into the contest questionable after he made his season debut Friday against Chicago. The specifics of the absence remain unclear, as he was recently cleared from the league's COVID-19 protocols. Recent call-ups Givani Smith and Taro Hirose will enter the lineup in Helm's stead Sunday.

Red Wings' Darren Helm: Considered questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Helm (undisclosed) is considered questionable for Sunday's matchup with the Blackhawks.

Helm made his season debut Friday against Chicago after missing the first four games of the season due to the NHL's COVID-19 protocols, registering two hits in 9:22 of ice time, so he may just be dealing with some soreness ahead of Sunday's rematch. Another update on the 34-year-old forward should be released prior to puck drop against the Hawks.

Red Wings' Darren Helm: Two hits in season debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Helm (COVID-19 protocols) had two hits in 9:22 during Friday's 4-1 loss to the Blackhawks.

The veteran forward's 13 shifts were the lowest among all Red Wings skaters. Helm should give the Red Wings a boost in penalty killing and physicality, as he had 88 hits in 68 contests last year. Most fantasy managers can pass on the 34-year-old, as Helm likely won't play above the third line in 2020-21.

Red Wings' Darren Helm: Making season debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Helm (COVID-19 protocol) will make his season debut in Friday's game versus the Blackhawks.

Helm is expected to handle a bottom-six role in his season debut Friday. The 34-year-old played 68 games last year and accrued nine goals and seven assists.

Red Wings' Darren Helm: Clears COVID-19 protocols
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Helm cleared the NHL's COVID-19 protocols and was activated from the non-roster list Friday.

Helm could play in Friday's game against the Blackhawks. With Filip Zadina (COVID-19 protocols) out, Helm could handle a major role in the top six if he's indeed in the lineup, but there's been no confirmation of what line he'll play on Friday.

Red Wings' Darren Helm: Could debut against Chicago
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Helm (COVID-19 protocols) could make his season debut as soon as Friday against Chicago, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Helm was originally expected to be sidelined until the end of January after missing training camp due to the NHL's COVID-19 protocols, but the Red Wings are dealing with a number of absences up front, so they may no longer feel like they have the option to give him an extended period to get into game shape. Another update on Helm's status should surface prior to puck drop against the Blackhawks on Friday night.

Red Wings' Darren Helm: Season debut on hold
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Helm (COVID-19 protocols) will require at least two weeks to regain his physical form before drawing into the lineup, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.

While Helm reportedly took to the ice for morning skate Saturday, the veteran winger has a lot of catching up to do in order to get back into playing shape. "You miss that much time, 14 days of not exercising basically, it's going to take a little bit," Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill said Saturday. Based on the timeline from his bench boss, Helm should miss at least seven more contests.

Red Wings' Darren Helm: Passes COVID-19 protocols
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Helm cleared the NHL's COVID-19 protocols Saturday but remains a non-roster player, Sportsnet's Chris Johnston reports.

Helm will look to return to team activities Sunday, and it's unclear when he'll be ready for game action. The 33-year-old logged 68 games last season, posting 16 points and 102 shots on net.

Red Wings' Darren Helm: Dealing with virus issues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Helm is unavailable due to the league's COVID-19 protocols.

The specifics of his placement remain unclear, but Helm will not be able to practice or travel with the team until he's been cleared. Helm was listed as a non-roster player for Thursday's game against the Hurricanes.

Red Wings' Darren Helm: Gets dreaded non-roster label
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Helm (undisclosed) was designated as a non-roster player ahead of Thursday's season opener against the Hurricanes, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.

Helm sustained a mysterious injury that prevented him from suiting up for multiple practices in training camp. The 33-year-old winger has spent his entire career with the Wings, but there are concerns that he could fall out of favor due to the arrival of Vladislav Namestnikov, and the expected emergence from 2018 sixth overall draft pick Filip Zadina.

Red Wings' Darren Helm: Misses another session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Helm (undisclosed) was unfit for another practice Thursday, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Pressreports.

Helm is an NHL regular, meaning he's solidified a spot in the Opening Night lineup, but his continued absence has afforded the Red Wings a chance to get a longer look at Swedish free-agent pickup Mathias Brome.

Red Wings' Darren Helm: Deemed unfit to practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Helm (undisclosed) didn't practice Monday after coach Jeff Blashill deemed him "unfit to practice" Sunday, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports.

The "unfit to practice" designation can refer to either illness or injury. With a week and a half until the regular season, Helm still has plenty of time to recover from whatever is currently keeping him sidelined.

Red Wings' Darren Helm: Rare helper in typical loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Helm picked up an assist in Tuesday's 5-2 loss to the Hurricanes.

Detroit is last in the league in scoring by means of averaging only two goals per game, but Helm was able to defy the odds by snapping a 10-game pointless drought thanks to his secondary apple on a Christoffer Ehn tally. After a hot start to the season, Helm has only compiled nine goals and seven helpers through 68 contests.

Red Wings' Darren Helm: Ready to rock
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Helm (undisclosed) will play against the Bruins on Saturday, Dana Wakiji of the Red Wings' official site reports.

Helm didn't participate in Friday's practice, but he's ready to go against the division rival. The 33-year-old winger has recorded 14 points through 56 games, but he adds a solid physical presence with 74 hits and 35 PIM.

Red Wings' Darren Helm: Probable for Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Helm (undisclosed) is expected to play in Saturday's game against the Bruins but won't know for sure until the morning of the game, Dana Wakiji of the Red Wings' official site reports.

Helm has played two games since returning from an injury but didn't take part in practice Friday. While it's unclear if his absence was related to the previous issue, confirmation of his availability should come at some point before the opening face-off Saturday.

Red Wings' Darren Helm: Dazzles in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Helm (undisclosed) scored both of the Red Wings' goals in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to the Sabres.

Helm missed two straight games with an undisclosed injury before returning with a bang against the Sabres. The speedy veteran winger looked spry in this one, as he logged a team-high five shots between 16:23 of ice time. There are far more attractive fantasy options than Helm, though he's been known to heat up on short notice, and you could do worse than him as a budget-friendly flier in select DFS contests.

Red Wings' Darren Helm: Expected to suit up Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Helm (undisclosed) is expected to be in the lineup for Tuesday's game in Buffalo, Dana Wakiji of the Red Wings' official site reports.

Helm missed two games with his mystery injury but he's expected to be ready for Tuesday's road tilt. The 33-year-old has 12 points in 54 games while averaging 13:13 of ice time, the lowest since his age-21 season.

Red Wings' Darren Helm: Still sidelined Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Helm (undisclosed) won't be in the lineup for Sunday's afternoon matchup with Boston, Dana Wakiji of the Red Wings' official site reports.

Helm has yet to see his injury clarified, but head coach Jeff Blashill reiterated that the forward is considered day-to-day. The 33-year-old has just 12 points through 54 games this year, so his absence likely won't affect much from a fantasy perspective. Expect Helm to be re-evaluated again prior to Tuesday's matchup in Buffalo.

Red Wings' Darren Helm: Won't play Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Helm (undisclosed) won't be in the lineup for Friday's game against Columbus, Dana Wakiji of the Red Wings' official site reports.

The specific nature of Helm's injury remains a mystery, but he'll miss at least one contest due to his undisclosed issue. The veteran forward will be reevaluated ahead of Sunday's matchup with Boston.

Red Wings' Darren Helm: Pockets helper in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Helm posted an assist and two hits in Sunday's 4-2 loss to the Blackhawks.

Helm has been quiet lately with three points in his last 11 games. The 32-year-old winger is up to 10 points, 59 hits, 56 shots on goal and a plus-1 rating through 42 outings this season. With a bottom-six role on a low-scoring Red Wings team, Helm likely isn't worth a look in fantasy.
