Report- Broken Cheekbone For Helm

from Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press,

Red Wings forward Darren Helm could be looking at more surgery after getting injured during Friday's player-run practice in Troy.

A source familiar with the situation said Helm suffered a fractured cheekbone. He is to see a specialist today to determine whether the break will heal on its own, or if an operation is required. Helm was injured when he was hit by a puck deflected by defenseman Ian White.

Poor Helmer. He must feel cursed.

Ian White; the new Brad Stuart.

Or not…
