  • Red Wings' Darren Helm: Leading buyout candidate for Detroit

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/10/18) Helm is the Red Wing most likely to be subjected to a contract buyout ahead of the 2018-19 season, theScore reports.

    The speedy forward has three years remaining on a deal that comes with an annual cap hit of $3.85 million. Helm's 2017-18 campaign was strong by his standards, as he recorded 13 goals, 18 assists and 131 hits in 75 games, but Wings coach Jeff Blashill is antsy to see prospect Michael Rasmussen at the top level and that could render Helm expendable. Per CapFriendly, his total buyout cost would be $6.3 million spread over six years.

    Red Wings' Darren Helm: Turns in quality season

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/8/18) Helm manufactured 13 goals (two shorthanded) and 18 assists through 75 games this season.

    The Red Wings took Helm in the fifth round of the 2005 NHL Entry Draft, and he's been in Motown ever since. While his numbers don't jump off the page from a fantasy perspective, this checks out as a pretty good campaign for the 31-year-old forward. Helm uses his quick feet to chase down loose pucks and work effectively on the penalty kill, plus there's a lot of intangibles that he brings to the table that won't necessarily show up on the scoresheet. Clearly, he's admired by the Detroit brass as the checking-line mainstay is under contract with the club through 2021-22.

    Red Wings' Darren Helm: Major headache for Penguins in home win

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/27/18) Helm registered a goal and two assists during 5-on-5 hockey in Tuesday's 5-2 home win over the Penguins.

    Helm was starting a career-high 57.9 percent of his even-strength shifts in the defensive zone heading into Tuesday's action, making this outburst seem all the more random. With five games remaining for the Red Wings, the speedy penalty-killing specialist has an outside chance of tying his career high in points set at 33 during the 2014-15 campaign. Currently, he's at 10 goals and 18 helpers through 70 games.

    Red Wings' Darren Helm: Makes dent in scoresheet

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/9/18) Helm found the back of the net in Friday's 3-2 road loss to the Blue Jackets.

    This was the ninth goal of the season for Helm, who has his moments offensively, but probably isn't on that many fantasy rosters as a penalty-killling specialist.

    Red Wings' Darren Helm: Dishing at steady clip

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/18/18) Helm posted a secondary assist in Sunday's 3-2 home loss to the Maple Leafs.

    Helm has a real shot at setting a new career high in assists, having already bagged 15 apples with his personal best set at 20 from the 2010-11 campaign. The penalty-killing specialist is still below a half-point-per-game pace, though, and he's not being used on the power play after getting a little bit of time there in the past. Unless you're in an extremely deep league, Helm's probably waiver fodder.
