Red Wings' Helm to miss at least two games
Detroit Red Wings center Darren Helm will miss at least two games due to fluid in his shoulder

The Detroit Red Wings reportedly have lost another key player after an MRI exam showed center Darren Helm has fluid in his shoulder. He will miss games against the New Jersey Devils on Friday and the Florida Panthers on Saturday.

Red Wings general manager Ken Holland made the announcement Thursday, according to the Detroit Free Press.

Helm has seven goals and 10 points in 15 games since returning to the lineup after back and groin injuries limited him over the past year.

The Red Wings already are without top forwards Pavel Datsyuk, who is recovering from concussion symptoms, and Henrik Zetterberg, who is out with a herniated disc.

Quote of the Day

We're buyers. We're committed to winning. That's what [owner Vinnie Viola] has said all along and what we've said all along. We want to win. We want to win a championship. We're putting the pieces together, step by step, and we're hopeful that Jaromir can lead these young guys to the promised land. It's a win-win for us.
