Draper out, Helm called up

Kris Draper has a tear in his groin -- an ultrasound yesterday showed as much -- and won't play tonight to rest his injury. With Tomas Holmstrom (abdominals) and Dan Cleary (broken jaw) still sidelined, the Red Wings called up 20-year-old Darren Helm from Grand Rapids for tonight's game.
Also, Darren McCarty (ribs) practiced with the team for the first time this morning. His injury, however, could keep him out another couple of weeks.
Dominik Hasek's back is still sore, so he'll sit out tonight's game. Jimmy Howard has been recalled from Grand Rapids to back up starter Chris Osgood.
