Darren Helm to Miss 4-6 Weeks with MCL Sprain


From Chuck Pleiness at RedWingsFront, the report out of Detroit is that Darren Helm suffered a 2nd-degree MCL sprain on Saturday night when he collided with San Jose's Dominic Moore in the third period. Helm is a big part of the Red Wings' penalty kill and a tough-to-play 3rd line center who had found success and chemistry with wingers Drew Miller and Justin Abdelkader. This would likely keep him out of the lineup until at least the 2nd round of the playoffs.
