Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Darren Helm
Darren Helm was born January 21, 1987 in Winnipeg, Manitoba. The fifth round, 132nd overall selection in the 2005 NHL Entry Draft, Helm honed his skills in the Western Hockey League with the Medicine Hat Tigers.

A hard working forward, Helm registered 167 points over three seasons of junior hockey with Medicine Hat. After making his professional hockey debut on March 13, 2008 with the Red Wings, Helm would centre the club's fourth line throughout their successful drive to a Stanley Cup championship.

Helm would establish himself as one of the league's fastest and better defensive players during the early part of his career. In 2010-11, he scored 12 times and added 20 assists for 32 points, at that time, all career-highs.

In 2014-15, Helm would set new career benchmarks for goals and points, finding the back of the net 15 times and adding 18 assists for 33 points. He followed that up with a 13 goal season in 2015-16.

On the international stage, Helm helped Canada to gold at the 2007 World Junior Championship.
