It is relatively rare that a player establishes himself as a legitimate NHL player during a playoff run, but that is exactly what Darren Helm has done this year. Prior to the playoffs he has two partial NHL seasons with a grand total of 23 games, no goals, one assist and a -9 +/- rating. In these playoffs he has managed four goals and five points, which is a far bigger output than he has managed in the regular season, but his big contribution is his play as a checker. Darren Helm has been one of the key “energy” players on the Red Wings. This is shown by his playoff league leading 110 hits. Helm has shown he has an NHL calibre game under the toughest conditions the NHL offers (the playoffs) and that is rather impressive.
