Red Wings' Darren Helm: Mercifully finishes campaign
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Helm finished the 2020-21 campaign with three goals and five assists through 47 contests.

Helm started a career-low 37.5 percent of his 5-on-5 shifts in the offensive zone this season, which greatly affected his potential to put up fantasy-relevant numbers. The 34-year-old forward will be an unrestricted free agent this summer, and it'll be interesting to see where he lands after spending his first 14 years in Detroit.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Helm deflected a Troy Stecher shot for the opening tally at 1:48 of the second period. Forty seconds later, Viktor Arvidsson tied the game for the Predators, who added six more goals in their blowout win.

Red Wings' Darren Helm: Finally gets on board
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Helm registered an assist in Sunday's 4-1 win over Blue Jackets.

Helm went a solid month without notching a goal or an assist, so it was refreshing for Red Wings fans to see him bust the slump with the helper. Unfortunately, Helm isn't an option on the man advantage, and he hasn't been able to convert any offensive opportunities shorthanded.

Red Wings' Darren Helm: Afterthought in attacking zone
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Helm has yet to produce a point in March.

The 34-year-old is mired in a seven-game offensive drought, but the numbers tell the story here: Helm is starting only 38.2 percent of his 5-on-5 shifts in the offensive zone, a career low. Detroit has permitted 25 more goals than it has scored, even with Helm's extra attention in the defensive end. The long-time Red Wing shouldn't be relied upon in fantasy if this current trend continues.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Those helpers were Helm's first two points of the year in 13 contests. He's added 26 shots on net, a minus-1 rating and 12 hits.

Red Wings' Darren Helm: Will play Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Helm (lower body) will be in the lineup against Florida on Friday.

Helm returns following a three-game stint on the shelf due to his lower-body issue. The 34-year-old winger likely won't offer much in terms of fantasy value considering he is still looking for his first point of the season despite averaging 12:20 of ice time in nine appearances. Helm will slide in for Vladislav Namestnikov, who will miss out due to an undisclosed injury.

Red Wings' Darren Helm: Gets hurt Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Helm (lower body) won't return to Thursday's game against the Predators.

It's unclear how Helm suffered the lower-body injury, but he was forced to leave the game having seen just 6:09 of ice time. Helm's absence likely won't affect much from a fantasy persepctive, as he's yet to record a point this season. In his stead, look for veteran Bobby Ryan to ascend into a top-six role for the remainder of Thursday's game.

Red Wings' Darren Helm: Returns to lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Helm (undisclosed) had one shot and was plus-1 in Thursday's 7-3 loss to the Stars. He also won four of his five faceoff attempts.

Helm missed two games with his unknown issue, but the 34-year-old was back in action Thursday on Detroit's third line. Never a big offensive contributor even during his prime, Helm is a strictly a real-life role player at this stage of his career and is not a fantasy asset.

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.
