Family Man Darren Helm With The Cup & The Captain Speaks

09/06/2022 at 9:16pm EDT

Thanks for the outpouring of support from the '19'' during my recent health issue.

from Sasha Kandrach of the Avalanhe website,

Before the stifling heat of a mid-August day materialized, Darren Helm sat out in the backyard patio of his Bloomfield Hills home and took in the rays of the still Michigan morning as he carefully examined the purposeful inscriptions covering the Stanley Cup. Engrossed in its detail, Helm steadily rotated the base of the historic 35-pound trophy as he explored the names - of players he looked up to like Steve Yzerman, Joe Sakic and Mike Modano - and respective teams who have been fortunate enough to, at one point in time, also claim the coveted trophy as their own.

Despite nearly blinding its onlookers - as a result of its silver and nickel alloy beaming brightly against the morning sunlight - the up-close view of the iconic trophy was ideal for taking in the rich history that is showcased throughout every inch the nearly three-foot tall Cup.

continued with a few videos too...

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
