Helm Still in Disbelief

From Kirk Penton via the Winnipeg Sun,

[Darren Helm] leapfrogged an awful lot of talent to go from Grand Rapids Griffin in the AHL to fourth-line centre on the Stanley Cup champs.

“Guys that I’ve played with, they just can’t believe it,” Helm said. “... My coach from last year (Medicine Hat Tigers boss Willie Desjardins), he told me he can’t believe how well I played and the fact that I won. He said it’s just such an unbelievable turnaround from last year. I feel the same way. It doesn’t happen ... almost ever.

“My goal this year was to play about five games in the NHL regular season and just be along for the ride in the playoffs. It’s starting to catch up to me now, all the things that have happened.”
