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

I don't think it's really truly going to sink in until we drop the puck, to be honest. I know there's going to be a lot of smoke and mirrors with the media attention and all that. We came [Monday] and it was sort of a light day to get things organized. We just want to focus in on the business aspect, the game itself. That's what we're preparing to do. Get these next couple of days out of the way and it's game on.
