Helm Considered A Game Time Decision, But Ready To Go

from Ansar Khan of Mlive,

“I’m excited to get back in,” Helm said. “I’ve done this (return from injury) a few times. I want to get back out there and get going with the team.

“A bunch of good skates, cleared by the doctor, did my concussion test; did well on that and I feel good and ready to go.”

Helm described his season as painful, not physically but mentally. He has missed a total of 40 games with four separate injuries (14 due to his groin/back, then 11 due to his shoulder, then seven due to his groin and then the concussion).

He has seven goals and 12 points in 29 games. He is anxious to help during the team’s playoff drive.

“I’ve been watching this team do a lot of good things,” Helm said. “Last night, the night before, last couple games I really wanted to be a part of seeing what the guys did, how they laid it on the line, how excited everybody was with those wins, myself included.

“Felt a little left out, but get a chance to be a part of it now and hopefully keep a good thing going.”

About The Malik Report

The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related. I offer biased, perhaps unprofessional-at-times and verbose coverage of my favorite team, their prospects and developmental affiliates. I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
