Helm sent back to GR
Here's the press release from the Griffins' top-notch PR staff ...
The Detroit Red Wings on Friday assigned center Darren Helm to the Grand Rapids Griffins.
The 21-year-old speedster has made three trips to Hockeytown within the past month, going scoreless while averaging exactly seven minutes of ice time in seven games with Detroit. He currently leads Griffins rookies with 13 goals and 28 points through 65 games.
Helm will return to the Griffins’ lineup tonight when they host the Manitoba Moose at 7 p.m. Tickets are still available for the team’s final dollar dogs/dollar beers promotion of the season, and the game will be televised live by Comcast on channel 20 in Grand Rapids and Lansing and channel 190 in Southeast Michigan.
