Helm has an oblique strain; will miss about one week.
Helm is expected to miss at least the next three games with an oblique strain. However, Red Wings GM Ken Holland said that Helm’s injury is not serious. He will be replaced by the recently acquired Erik Cole.
The oft-injured Helm has played in all 61 games this season, but it looks like he is going to be out for “a bit of time” according to the Red Wings general manager Ken Holland. He will have an MRI tomorrow to determine the nature and severity of the upper-body injury.
Helm (concussion) will be a game-time decision on Saturday.
Helm confirmed that he would be in the lineup tomorrow afternoon, but Mike Babcock was less committal about Helm playing. Coach Babcock said that Helm will take pre-game warmups and then they will see how Helm feels before deciding if he plays. He would centre the fourth line with Cory Emmerton and Landon Ferraro on his wings with Teemu Pulkkinen taking a seat.
Helm (concussion) is expecting to return to the Red Wings lineup next week.
Helm participated in his first team practice since getting concussed this morning. Helm acknowledged that it is difficult to put a timeframe on a concussion, but hopes to be back next week. Look for him to return on Tuesday vs. the Maple Leafs or Thursday vs. the Penguins.
Helm will be out at least another week with concussion-like symptoms.
Helm said he hit his head on the ice in Ottawa last Thursday and left Tuesday's game early with headaches. Helm will miss at least the next three games, the Red Wings are hoping that he is not sidelined for longer.
Helm is battling headaches and will be shutdown for a few days.
Helm was injured in Tuesday's loss to the Devils and will not play Thursday or Friday. Thankfully for Detroit they were able to acquire David Legwand at the deadline who will step-in and fill-in at centre.
Helm left Tuesday's game after playing just 10:22 and did not return. Helm has struggled to stay healthy during his career, so add this to the list of time missed. The Wings have recalled Cory Emmerton to replace Helm.
Helm (groin) is officially IN tonight for the Red Wings.
Helm has only played in one game since December 4 and has missed the last seven games leading up to tonight's meeting with the Blues. In 16 games this season, Helm has played very well recording seven goals and four assists (11 points) to go along with a plus-6 rating.

Helm (groin) appears ready to return to the Red Wings lineup tonight.
Helm is centering a like with Tomas Tatar and Drew Miller and also participating in penalty kill drills which would suggest he will be back tonight vs. St. Louis. We will have an official update following the morning skate.
Helm missed the last 11 games with a shoulder injury that he suffered in early December. This is a huge boost for a Red Wings team who are starting to get healthy right before the Winter Classic. We will see if Helm can pick up where he left off, he scored seven goals and had 10 points in 15 games. He will centre the third line with Justin Abdelkader and Tomas Jurco on his wings.
