Darren Helm signs a 2 year deal with the Red Wings
Darren Helm has signed a new 2-year deal with the Detroit Red Wings that will bring back the speedy penalty killing forward. The contract was signed on Wednesday the 5th of August and the terms were not disclosed to the media.
Helm, just 23 years old, was the fifth-round pick of Detroit in 2005 played his first full season with the Wings in 2009-10. He appeared in 75 games last season and had 11 goals and 13 assists. He is a great addition to an aging Red Wings team that looks to get back into the Stanley Cup Finals were they were in 2009, losing to the Penguins in 7 games.
The Red Wings signed Mike Modano (Livonia, MI) to a 1-year deal earlier this week and General Manager Ken Holland said the team is still working with Forwards Justin Abdelkader (Muskegon, MI) and Kirk Maltby on one-way and/or two-way deals for the players.
Look for more information to come out of the Red Wings camp in the next few weeks.
