Detroit Red Wings general manager Ken Holland said center Darren Helm might start skating by the end of the week, or early next week.
“We still expect he’s going to be ready in the first round of the playoffs; not Game 1, but anytime from Game 2 on,’’ Holland said. “He’s done pretty good healing the last nine days.’‘
Helm suffered a sprained left medial collateral ligament March 17 in San Jose, when he checked Dominic Moore.
The team said he would be out four-to-six weeks. Game 1 of the playoffs is April 11 or 12.
“This is the longest I’ve ever had to sit out. I’ve usually gotten back pretty quick from injuries,’’ Helm said on Friday. “This time we’re going to put a little more effort into making sure I get back quicker.’‘
