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.

For me, it's a great win for our hockey team and for a lot of people back in Columbus, especially our fans in particular … people who have been devoted to this organization, it's big.
