by Bill Roose / Detroit Red Wings

By The Numbers will highlight the Red Wings on-ice accomplishments in the 2014-15 season. Each week during the off-season, By The Numbers will profile a different player on the team, focusing on their statistical highs. This week we focus on third-line center Darren Helm.


Was sixth on the team in goals, establishing a new personal career high for a single season. Scored five goals in December, including a pair of season high two-goal performances against Dallas (Dec. 4) and New Jersey (Dec. 31). The Red Wings posted a 8-3-2 record when Helm scored last season.


Fired a season-high number of shots on goal in a 3-1 win over the Devils (Dec. 31). He repeated the feat in a 3-2 win at San Jose (Feb. 26). Set a career-high seven SOG at Edmonton, Jan. 4, 2011.


Finished fourth among teammates in plus/minus rating during the regular season. His plus-8 led the Red Wings in February. He produced a plus or even rating in 10 of 11 games in the month. Helm had a season-high 12-game stretch (Jan. 13 – Feb. 14) without a minus rating.


The most single-season hits collected since he set a personal best with 188 hits during the 2009-10 season when he played in 75 games. Had a season-high six hits in a 3-2 win at Chicago (Feb. 18). His single-game career best was established on Nov. 27, 2009 when he had nine hits in a 2-0 loss to Calgary.


Produced a career high for points, the most as a pro since 2008-09 when he had 37 points in 55 AHL games with the Grand Rapids Griffins. Had a season-best three-game point streak from Dec. 4-7 as the Red Wings enjoyed a three-game winning streak vs. the Stars, Rangers and Hurricanes.


Number of power-play goals scored last season by the speedy third-line center, giving him four in 366 career games. He became a valuable piece to the Wings’ second unit as a net-front presence, scoring against Tampa Bay (Nov. 9), Winnipeg (Feb. 14) and Washington (April 5).
