Red Wings’ Helm leaves Nashville game early, will be re-evaluated in Detroit

The Detroit Red Wings brought home 2 points on Saturday against the Nashville Predators, but they also brought home another injured player.

Darren Helm played only 2:41 in Saturday’s tilt, after taking hits in the first period from Shea Weber and Seth Jones. Weber hit him at the blue line about 5:00 into the game, and then Jones hit him along the boards behind the Nashville net, catching his head in the process. Helm immediately went to the bench after the latter hit and made his way to the locker room. He did not play in the rest of the game. He’s been classified with an “upper-body injury” and will be re-evaluated in Detroit.

Helm had played all games this season up until this point, for only the second time in his career. He joins captain Henrik Zetterberg and defenseman Kyle Quincey on the shelf for the time being, both of whom are hoping for a return on Wednesday against the New York Rangers.
