Red Wings forward Helm takes it easy on Day 2
One day after Darren Helm's first on-ice session in two months, the Detroit Red Wings center took it easy Thursday.

One day after Darren Helm's first on-ice session in two months, the Detroit Red Wings center took it easy Thursday.

Helm, who missed all but one game last season due to a back injury, participated in a 45-minute skate in the morning of the second day of Red Wings development camp at Centre Ice Arena in Traverse, Mich. He sat out the second session, which involved contact.

"We're moving in baby steps the first couple of days," Red Wings general manager Ken Holland told the Detroit Free Press.

Helm told the media after his return to the ice Wednesday he won't participate in a scrimmage Friday. Saturday is a day off; the camp ends with morning and afternoon sessions Sunday and Monday.

"Sunday and Monday, he's going to go harder, longer," said Holland, who added that Helm will be involved in some contact drills before the camp ends. The goal, he said, is for Helm to increase his training workload.

"I'm hoping that, the first day of training camp in September, he's in the scrimmage," Holland said. "Obviously, if he's not in the scrimmage, it's not good."

Quote of the Day

I watched many times this year the series between the Russians and Canada in 1972, and he was a dominating player there. After I watched the tapes, I respect him a lot more because he turned the series around. He was the guy. In that time, he was the best in the world. It’s a big honor for me to tie him.
