from Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press,
Every visit to a doctor keeps yielding the same information: Detroit Red Wings forward Darren Helm just needs time to heal from his back injury.
Helm hasn't played hockey in a month, hasn't even skated in that time, hasn't so much as worked out. He went to see another specialist Monday in New York, and the diagnosis remains the same.
"It's a strained ligament," general manager Ken Holland told the Free Press today. "Darren is very frustrated, and we are, too. It's not healing as fast as we'd hoped, but we have to make sure we're conservative. It was important to get another opinion.
"Every test has been negative; there's no damage. So we just have to be patient. The doctor gave him some different pain medication to help speed the healing process, but it's a slow process."

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.
