Helm recalled, Zetterberg out

With Henrik Zetterberg out with a groin strain, the Red Wings recalled Darren Helm from Grand Rapids to play against Vancouver tonight. Zetterberg is day-to-day.

Helm got the call instead of Ville Leino in part because Helm fits under the salary cap and Leino does not.

As I said yesterday, it's likely that the lines will be shuffled (see Wednesday practice notes) with Valtteri Filppula centering the second line, Kris Draper centering the third line and Helm centering the fourth line.


Also, goalie Jimmy Howard (broken finger) was cleared to play and shipped to Grand Rapids.
