Up until last season, Darren Helm appeared well on his way to a long, productive career with the Detroit Red Wings. That still may very well prove to be the case, but injuries are complicating the situation at the moment. In fact, a nagging back problem cost the speedy forward all but one game in the 2012-13 campaign, and there's no guarantee as to exactly when he'll be ready to play again.
